The war in Iraq is getting worse. U.S. forces are suffering from a lack of troops and are desperate for more soldiers for the occupation. Bush isn't pulling out, and every now and then, someone mentions the draft. Would you support the draft to better patrol the mideast?
What are your reasons for supporting or opposing the draft?
Let's say the draft targets all able bodied people from ages 18-21. Those of you who fall within this age bracket. What would you do if you got your draft orders?
If you were adequately supplied with good armor and weapons, specific orders and sufficient backup, were encouraged to help the occupied people as best as possible, and were paid $2k a month for a 2-year tour, would you reconsider?
What would it take for you to enlist?
