How retarded are you people?
Actually I think it is not that we are retarded on either side of this discussion. I think it is that you are ignorant.
You take a simple question and make it a huge debate for no reason.
Actually it is not as simplistic as you think. Something that effects so many people in a way that would compell them to do something against their will is important to talk about. Sometimes it is necessary to have a draft, sometimes it is not.
In this case we need to analyze the reasons behind the two Democrats who have introduced draft authorization bills in the House and Senate in 2004 (one of whom has brought the issue back up), we need to look at why they want it.
SIMPLY NO, we do not need to reinstate the draft nor should we. Because we fucking have enough troops already. We have more than enough troops. We have enough troops to occupy the entire middle east.
The military does have a manpower shortage, and no we do not have more than enough troops. They are slashing the Air Force and Navy to increase the amount of troops the Army and Marines can have...and yet they cannot produce the recruitment levels to fill these increased slots.
And you definately exaggerate our capabilities when you say we have enough troops to occupy the entire Middle East. This shows how ignorant you are of the US's military committments abroad and the stress currently placed on our military.
