Do you think people your age will have to worry about the draft?

“I think that if the war keeps getting worse they will. Not many people want to go, and they don’t want to join the military while there’s a war going on. It’s hard to recruit people, so a draft might be necessary.”

“I don’t think that the draft is something that people should be worried about. A lot of people are just really lazy. If people are reluctant to join, I don’t necessarily think the draft is a bad thing. Sometimes people have to be pushed.”

“I don’t think so. I think there will always be enough people who want to join the military, so that it won’t be a problem.”

“I don’t think it will come to that in the immediate future, but if we decide to take action against North Korea and Iran, it could be very possible.”

“I hope not. We need to worry more about our education and our future. We shouldn’t have to worry about the draft.”

“Possibly. I’ve noticed that the military keeps getting more desperate. They keep lowering their standards and requirements. Once they’ve exhausted what they can lower, they will have to make people join.”

“I don’t really think it will come to that. I don’t think that would go over well with the majority of the population. I just don’t think the American people will stand for it.”

“Yeah, I do. I think they are running out of people who want to join. Eventually they will have to make people.”

H_L, message is : close window! :) (Unless there is an odor you want to dispell.)

If there was manditory conscription, this wouldn't be a worry. One year-military or civic duty. Teach kids they aren't the only thing that matters. Wish someone had pushed me in that direction. Wouldn't be such a bum now. Of course, if WWII were any indication of how a draft would work, almost everyone under what, 45 would have to worry?

Funny you should ask. I noticed a window was still raised a bit from this weekend. The draft gave me a chill.

Hmmmm, I wonder if there's a message there.
