DOES MORE WAR REQUIRE A DRAFT? by Brent Budowsky ALSO: Mission Accomplished: How Bush and Republicans Destroyed the Military by A. Alexander
"Having been involved in intelligence and military matters for more than two decades, this much is clear: we cannot sustain our commitments today; with any additional wars to fight, we will be left with only two choices: either inadequate forces creating more Iraqs, or adequate forces that can only be maintained through a revival of the draft, no matter what it is called. That is the fact."

Does More War Require a Draft?


By Brent Budowsky

August 24, 2006


Editor's Note: In this guest essay, political analyst Brent Budowsky says policymakers and pundits favoring a wider war in the Middle East must be asked about ominous signs that the Bush administration's proclivity for war means some form of military draft is in America's future:


The involuntary recall of 3,500 Marines to active duty, required by personnel shortages for the war in Iraq, on top of previous extensions of deployment schedules for active-duty troops and reserves, demands an answer to this question: Is America headed for a return to the draft, either by that traditional name or in some other form?


The problem is simple: the United States went to war in Iraq without sufficient numbers of troops leading to inevitable problems. My view has always been that it would have been better for the President to have finished the job of killing bin Laden in Afghanistan, rather than cutting and running on that job, and helping bin Laden escape, to charge into an unwise war in Iraq.

Once the decision to wage war in Iraq was made, the manner with which it was conducted created inevitable and catastrophic results that have caused major, long-term damage to American force structures, recruitment and restocking of equipment that will cost many billions of dollars to replace.

Many thoughtful Republicans, such as Sen. Chuck Hagel, have raised these issues from the beginning. Even Sen. John McCain, one of the strongest supporters of the war, has always understood the implications of troop strength and force structure, and now criticizes the President for not leveling with the American people on the consequences and cost of the war.

Remember...

8/9/2006

40,000 U.S. TROOPS HAVE DESERTED SINCE 2000

"Army spokesman Hilferty said the Army doesn't try to find deserters. Instead, their names are given to civilian law enforcement officers who often nab them during routine traffic stops and turn them over to the military."

we don't have the military to meet our commitments....

there will be no draft, no matter what kind of staged attacks the Neo Cons try to whip up the fear level....

The don't have the military to quell civil disturbance, and it's likely that the guard would join against them....

There will be NO DRAFT, because the next phase of the neo-con stategy will be trying to disarm the American people thru UN troops that are already within our borders.

After the next 9/11 happens, martial law will be immediately enforced and our already bogged down troops over seas will be too busy in Iran to do anything to help us!
