Immediately undoing my “light blogging” pledge, I want to ask why there is no talk of reimposing the draft? We’re about to enter into a major ground war against a country BECAUSE they have weapons of mass destruction. Isn’t there any concern that they’ll USE them? If we’re not concerned that they’ll use them then why are we entering into the war? And if there IS concern that they’ll use them, why aren’t we starting up the draft?
If Iraq USES weapons of mass destruction we will need to replace the troops killed. That’s why they’re called weapons of MASS DESTRUCTION. So why no draft? What kind of contingency planning is that? What is going on?
