[/quote] [b]How much money would that cost? If the purpose of the draft would be to save money, can they afford that?[/b] We had drafts for the Civil War Union Army, WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Maybe others too. Most were unpopular. I know that WWI was unpopular and I remember how unpopular Vietnam was. But they happened. If you don't get enough people who want to fight in a war that the gov. wants, they do a draft. [/quote] That was my thought too. [/quote]
Titor said it would happen.
Now they are talking seriously about it.

US lawmakers warns cuts may revive military draft
A key US lawmaker leading the fight against military spending cuts has warned that dramatic new reductions could force the United States to shift from an all-volunteer military and reinstate the draft.
House Armed Services Committee Buck McKeon, a Republican, told Fox News television on Monday that lawmakers "need to understand what it's going to mean to keep an all-volunteer force."
"Do we want to reinstitute the draft? Some of the cuts we're talking about would take over 200,000 out of end strength from our military,"
McKeon said in remarks also reported in the Washington Post on Tuesday.
THEY CAN GO FUCK THEMSELVES.
