The Draft? Please discuss.
Some commenters have expressed opinions whether the U.S. should begin military conscription (the draft).
This blog has not taken a position on the war. We do, however, comment on others' positions favoring the war, to the extent that they relate to our topic: the responsibility of those eligible to serve who support the war to Man Up!
It's similar with the draft. If our national civilian political leadership first calls upon real Americans to volunteer for military service in the Global War on Terror, even if they plan other careers later in life, then we don't need a draft.
One would think that our great country could produce well over 80,000 healthy heterosexuals 41-or-under, mostly men in their twenties, if we were really at war.
And one would also think that our great country could produce additional healthy non-heterosexuals 41-or-under who would be well qualified to serve, provided that our national civilian political leadership found the political courage within themselves to get rid of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
However, comments are welcome. Thank you.
