GUEST,282RA BS: Avert The Draft (66* d) RE: BS: Avert The Draft 14 Aug 07

There's going to have to be a draft at some point. Our military is running out of people and we have to have a functioning military. Trying to start a draft in the middle of an unpopular war will be fun to watch. But sooner or later, there must be a draft because our military is seriously outstripped. We're not talking just being low on people, we're talking about the military's very ability to function is being compromised by a lack of personnel.

We need a draft just to get enough people to repair all the worn-out and damaged equipment and much of that needs to be upgraded as well as repaired.

Then there's all the stuff we will end up leaving in Iraq and Afghanistan. There's huge amounts of equipment there that will never return stateside and all that will have to be replaced and more people brought in and trained for it use.

Our military is in crisis, folks, and things cannot keep going the way they are going for much longer. That's why I scoff at the notion of this war dragging on for years. Not hardly. Not without a draft and raising taxes and I don't see that happening.
