    Re: The Draft ahhh!!

    I just did a news search and came up with nada.

    The closest thing was a high school opinion peice.

    The draft is a requirment in the US that young men between the age of 18-25 have to register their names with the government. If the US went to war then the registered names (in those ages) would be drawn randomly for service. If they don't register by the time they are 26 then they will never qualify for any type of Federal service/assistance such as student loans. The last person on record to refuse also recieved 2 years community service for breaking the law.

    After 9/11 there were certain Democrate Congress members who tried to pressure President Bush into calling up the draft for the War on Terrorism. President Bush refused. He cited the fact that a volunteer military is far more effective then an impressed one. Since then enough time has passed that anyone who was in the Reserves or the Regulars and didn't want to go into combat could resign so I would consider it safe to say that he has his voluntary military. There is no way that anyone left in any branch can claim they don't expect to see combat.

    Yeah i havent heard it either. 18-48? Theres no way they would want guys past 35. Plenty of younger, better shape men. So this makes me believe this story is bull.

    uhh... Canada, anyone?
    Unfortunately, in an interview a few months back, the boss of Canada said "No Way!" to Draft Dodgers going to his country. Sorry...

    Also, if I remember correctly, there's a bill going through right now that will make any form of Draft Dodging count as treason, punishable by death. I'm not sure how factual it is.

    Re: The Draft ahhh!!

    funny thing is, is that the US ISN'T at war. it was never declared by congress a war. it was labeled a war by bush and countless other people. personally, i think that the draft should not be reinstated, especially with those age limits. i had a shop teacher who was in Vietnam and he would be in those age limits still. and he is almost FIFTY! it is insane.

    That's funny. I just checked the CNN webpage, updated as of 9:42 p.m. EDT, nope, zip, nada.

    Are you sure it wasn't just somone making some outragous claim again? It happens all the time and there is no way something like that wouldn't be all over the news.
