With each passing day, a war with Iran becomes more and more a reality. Most of you are aware that congress has a bill in the works which will reinstate the draft if passed (Sn 89, HR 163).

While i'm here, i saw that they had things in place to stop people from fleeing to Canada. Anyone care to elaborate on that? possible methods etc.

Seal the border at the obvious check points, but they could not seal the whole border. The real question is will Canada allow you to stay? Will Mexico for that matter?

The best option to avoid of draft would be to join the army, navy, airforce before the draft happens. That way you would not be on the fighting front, as soon as you sighned up. The draftees are the ones who go to the frontlines first, you really think that a solider who was in there for 5 years would be up for the first bullets? The draftees are the grunts of the army.
Its a scary thought. One of the reasons for this is becauses our troops are spread so thin across the world. Some in Iraq, some in Afhganistan some in Africa. There all over the place.
