Kojac, If I could make a suggestion, Well what we should do is get all the politicians, the power mad and rich, the blind patriots and their potential enemies put them on an island somewhere and let em at it. That way the rest of us can live in peace as that is what most of us want anyway and as we are the majority we should get it sorted.
No one should sign up, all should refuse to join the armed forces, no one is invading America and from the mouths of all the armchair experts here on ATS no one is capable of invading or Attacking America anyway so there's no need for the draft is there.

if given the chance I'd fight. Both my grandfathers were in WW2, one fought at Omaha beach Normondy, the Other was at Pearl harbor. I was gonna join the Marines when I turned 18 but I ended up in a serious car accedent which held me back. If there was a draft I'd be down at my local recruteing office in no time.
I personaly belive going into Iraq was a major mistake but someone has to clean the mess up. We should have went after Iran instead.

Me? No way i'd fight. I believe voilence is only creating more terrorists for the future. Circle of voilence. So lock me up

I've found it interesting the attitude some people have had towards the question. It seems some people would go simply because their country asked them to, without questioning whether the cause is valid.

The sole advantage of the draft is that the millionaires son/daughter is on equal terms with the son of blue collars workers. Of course the disadvantages of a draft far outweigh the left wings aim of equality of the classes.

I think you should perhaps look at Bush's "war" record, for a start. While others were shipped off to Vietnam, Dubya was snorting coke and not turning up to a soft job (for which he was too stupid) in the Texas National Guard. The only reason his poppy fought in WWII was because Prescott Bush was caught red-handed financing the Nazis.
I think you're being a bit naive if you think that some millionaires can't wield influence to keep their kids out of harm's way.

If the Government decides on a draft, I'll be at the recruiting office before they call my number.
