The Question Club
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?
I'd serve willingly
I'd serve unwillingly
I'd dodge the draft by driving or flying to another country
I'd try and fail the medical check-up
Get arrested. Better to serve time than go to war
Not only would I serve willingly, I'd help ferret out my friends who are trying to dodge their duty
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?
Down payment on a new house paid
Dinner at the White House with the Bushes
$10,000 donation to a charity of your choice
An impressive grave marker or crypt, catered to your liking, including statuary and an eternal flame, should you perish in the line of duty
One hour make-out session with the Bush twins
A hug (I'm so lonely)
License to kill while on duty
A guarranteed promotion within the armed forces after your tour, to a cushy desk job
Guarrantee that in boot camp, you will lose all your weight and emerge with less than 5% fat
Everybody in your unit is a hottie, and coed bunking is the norm
One year of college entirely paid off, regardless of workload, books or choice of college
You actually pick up some useful career knowledge in your chosen profession
You're awarded 10 paid vacations anywhere in the world, 1 week at a time, after completion of tour
The right to get married (if you are gay), and or a huge wedding, all on Uncle Sam's dime
