OK, my veiled comment seems to require some explanation.

What the country can do is recruit for professional soldiers that want this way of life, pay them well and ensure their retirement is good enough to avoid homeless shelters and rehabilitation counseling.
Top US generals: Women should have to register for the draft, too
originally posted by: enlightenedservant
Actually, I'm completely against the draft. And I honestly think they only want women fighters in the US now because of a declining numbers of male enlistments or similar self-serving reasons, like wanting more available soldiers so they can deploy in more places at once.
In other words, our MIC needs more cannon fodder, so now they're aiming for our sisters, wives, daughters, etc. Nobody should be forced to fight in these BS wars. If someone volunteers, that's fine because they chose that path. But I would absolutely refuse to go fight, kill, or die so Cheney & his minions can seize more resources from people I've never met. That's just dumb.
