The use of Martial Law would have nothing to do with being forced into the military. The force is all volunteer. Martial Law is the use of the military to take over law enforcement/central control of a area.
I highly doubt that Bush will use Martial Law to "take over" the country in a NWO thing. The Draft that everyone fears will not happen.. period.. the country can not afford it..
