Report: Restoring the draft wont solve Military woes


news.yahoo.com

So then what about the third, most controversial option - is it time to reinstitute the draft? That option has a certain appeal as the Army fell short of its active-duty recruiting goal for June by about 15%. It is the second consecutive month the service\'s enlistment effort has slipped as public discontent grows over the war in Iraq.

This is somewhat reassuring for those concerned about the draft but not reassuring for the problems the US military faces in terms of meeting i\'s goals.

I think this article points to a problem that doesn\'t get talked about a lot and that is new technology in warfare and the lack of education and experience among NEW soldiers to deal with it.

Thoughts? Comments?

What they need to do is direct recruit in the specific fields were trained personal currently work in the private/ government sector.

ie Electronics experts, swat or police force members, aviation crew members, air/diesel mechanics, telephone and electrical line men. Foreign language teachers/specialists, oil men, gas processing employees etc

Give them a big bonus/guaranty and a Federal law that says if accepted their employer must rehire them back when returning from service should they opt to not stay in the military.

Pay grade must be equal in caliber to their private pay.

Or must have some type of debt coverage by the Fed to absolve them and their family from existing debt obligations.

drafting some low IQ, red neck, ignorant, gun toting, careless draftee does not make a superior infantry man giving the short time frame that would be allocated for training.

Paying for an educated, intelligent, crafty person with specific skill sets that could be used in the battlefield however makes your army that more dangerous to the enemy.

Knowing exactly where to shot a pressurized system that would result in a massive destruction/explosion etc is of more value then a tard that is going to just shot a thousand rounds down range and hope it strikes something important to cause some kind of "boom".
