We didnt want the war to go forward in the first place, otherwise canada would have sent troops, we were against it from the beginning. Canada did fight in the WWII and we sent our troops before the americans did. Also canada goes in and cleans up after the americans are done tearing a country to shreds.

A draft in the near future would probably not involve drafting millions of people. To avoid huge costs in training and pay, they would only draft as many as was needed. I am not for the draft, but if drafted I would serve my country proudly. Those drafted would likely end up driving trucks and cooking for the already trained current soldiers.
Of course if they have someting bigger than Iraq in mind, I could be terribly wrong.
why dratf people anyways? draftees get all the well trained people killed by doing stupid stuff anyways. if i were a soilder i would not serve with a draftee. i would wnat to serve with peopel that are there for the same reason i am there. i volunteered to be there. theres o point in drafting people. most of the deserters are draftees.

But all I have to say, especially about the draft, is it will happen. I may be risking my job and life say those words, but it is true.
I can tell you now most personnel within the military are beyond stressed out. There isn't enough support and morale going around to keep us fully functional.
Pending war with Asian countries. Korea, China, Taiwan. You name it, they are against us. WWIII is on the horizon. If you think this war on terrorism is bad, wait until you see whats in store in the next upcoming months to a few years. I am not promising anything, but I am saying I see and hear what goes on. I live it everyday, so WWIII is a highly likely event. Do not take any rumors lightly.
My views from being inside the system further than some of you are will be a most powerful asset for when I post upon this message board within the near to far future. You will see why soon enough.
