after 9/11 and all the chaos and anger that followed there was a bill that past (literally) overnite it is known as u all know as the patriot act. and u probably know that many congressman were not even allowed to read it , before it was passed unanimously, u may also have heard a congressman state that if they had to read through all the laws and bills that nothing would ever get done. pretty scary we do not need a patriot act, we need people in our gov't and congress to act like patriots.

well there was another bill that has been kicked about congress for 2 years or so and has yet to pass entitled the "Universal National Service Act of 2003 which in summary states

primarily the desire "[to] provide for the common defense by requiring that all young persons in the United States, including women, perform a period of military service or a period of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, and for other purposes." All males and females between the ages of 18-26 are obligated upon completion of this bill to follow its orders, whose specifics, including duration and duties, are to be at the complete command of the President. Section 4 makes this clear, stating that "[the] President shall prescribe such regulations as are necessary to carry out this act

now say just that there is an attack wether real or perceived (orchestrated) with enough death or emotional fallout to get alot of americans back to a point of boiling anger against certain country's/terrorists ( whoever we point the finger at this time, probably iran) which could get the u.s officially involved in WWIII. is it possible this same type of bill could pass in the middle of the night under the veil of national security and people could get there papers shortly thereafter.

and certainly the gov't would expect much resistance, but by law could charge these people with crimes, where might they put these people who refuse to go, possibly in the civilian detainment centers (fema camps) that have been finished in the last few years (500 plus camps/prisons)?

could this be in the works?

The 2003 draft bill was in response to the situation in Iraq; the idea was that if a draft were necessary in the short term, the bill would ensure it would be done the right way as opposed to the Vietnam fiasco. No longer would those with the means for a college education be excluded from mandatory service. Likewise, in a period post-women's liberation, the sword of equality cuts both ways. Now the consensus among the hawks, publicly at least, is that we needn't worry about the Draft. That is, the total volunteer force will continue to be adequate so long as there are plenty of kids looking for a meal ticket and some training.

However, we should indeed keep our eyes peeled about the Draft. Lately, it seems the potential for its return is the highest since Vietnam. What with all the resources and man-hours spent in Iraq and Afghanistand, could the same over-extended, battle-weary force pull off yet ANOTHER major invasion/occupation and finish what was begun? Not with recruitment levels down across the board, that's for sure.
