 Quoting: NightWisp

New York, NY - Congressman Charles B. Rangel issued the following statement regarding US involvement in Syria:

"I strongly abhor and condemn the news that chemical weapons were reportedly used by the government of Syria. However, I strongly urge the President to seek an affirmative decision of Congress prior to committing any U.S. military engagement to this complex crisis.

Before we commit our military personnel to another war, we must reinstate the draft. Reinstating the draft and requiring women to register for the Selective Service would compel the American public to have a stake in the wars we fight as a nation. We must question why and how we go to war, and who decides to send our men and women into harm's way.

Military engagement should be our last resort. If we must go to war, every American should be compelled to stop and think twice about whether it is worth sending our brothers and sisters, and sons and daughters to fight. Currently less than one percent of America's population is unfairly shouldering the burden of war."
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1399610




You fuck nuts are missing the point of what he said. Reinstate the draft so the people will give a fuck. Not so we have more soldiers.

Yep ... its called "reverse psychology" ... to get all the couch-generals to wake up - you think war is fun - go join up

Drafts should NEVER be allowed in a purportedly free country, and women should never be drafted.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 45074137


I agree. My middle daughter and her husband are both 23. They have 2 small children. If both would get drafted, who gets the kids? Me? My son-in-laws mother? The state?

IF we were truly defending our country against an invading force over here on our soil, EVERYONE who could, would be fighting to defend our country. With Syria, this is not the case. We need to butt out.

Re: Rangel: Reinstate Draft Before We Go Into Syria
The subtleties of his argument must be lost on some of you. If the draft is reinstated then war will be less likely to happen because the citizens will now have some skin in the game. The support for the war will probably go from 9% now to 0%.

He's making a good anti war argument out of concern for the citizens.
