Does it scare you that the American military is about to `test` its drafting system?

Yes it certainly does. I don't think people should have to go to war if they don't want to.

God I hope Bush doesn't reinstate the draft.

the selective service system is responsible for making sure it's functional... so it has to periodically test...

as for Bush implimenting the draft... the only ones calling for the draft are Democrats who hope to scare Americans into a full withdraw from Iraq...

I'm joining the coast guard before they can draft me for sh*t!

It isn't up to Bush...

I'm afraid that if we invade Iran, we'll definitely have a draft. They can't come up with enough troops to relieve the ones in Iraq as it is.

Oh well, I'm old! And I'm a girl. It's like that Eminem song:

All this terror America demands action
Next thing you know you've got Uncle Sam's ass asking
To join the army or what you'll do for their Navy
You just a baby, getting recruited at 18
You're on a plane now, eating their food and their baked beans
I'm 28, they're gonna take you before they take me!

Okay I'm 29. But it's still the point! If they had a draft and I was young and unmarried, I'd either head to Canada or pretend to be gay.

If I have to tie myself to my bed I bloody will!
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/8/07 - 12:35:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I don't want to get sent to war.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/8/07 - 10:06:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
it doesnt work that way... kiki...

it doesnt descriminate by age, just eligibility...

13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/8/07 - 10:12:44 AM EST (GMT-5)
Doesn't bother me. I'm already serving.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 1/8/07 - 10:13:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
I like the cartoon. It's very accurate.
13 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 2/9/07 - 11:50:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, I'm fine.
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 2/23/07 - 6:05:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
If Bush institutes a draft, I'm going to cry.
I don't want my friends dying for oil.

i have to say i dont like the president at all but if you live in america i think that you should be able to fight for it its scary but you should be willing to do it if you loved it enough you would fight for it
13 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 4/18/07 - 8:05:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm ineligible for the draft.

I think military service should be mandatory for all persons resideing in the united states

I'm the exact opposite. I don't think military service should even be an option. I hate that we need it now. It honestly hurts my heart.

I can't be drafted. But If I could I would be scared, but I wouldn't dodge it. I hate draft dodgers.

If the US would stop letting so many innocents get killed over there and end this STUPID war, we wouldn't have to worry about the D*ANG draft!

Honestly, the only way it could affect me is if my older brother gets drafted, seeing as I'm female. I actually feel though that if the draft is reinstated, I should be able to sign up for it too. It's an ethics thing: If I can enjoy the same rights and freedoms as a boy my age, then I should also have the same responsibilities. My conscience wouldn't feel right if some of my friends were drafted and I wasn't based purely on my gender.
