From Senator Harkin's Article
Many soldiers whose enlistment period is up are not being allowed to leave the service, and those who left the service years ago are being forced to
put on the uniform again against their wills. It is clear that we already have a back-door draft. Bush has effectively ended the all-volunteer
military.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
For a Senator to make these statements is indefensible, and as he well knows, is a LIE!
Those soldiers who have not been allowed to leave the service fall under the stop-loss provision clearly outlined in their contract
, which they
signed, acknowledging understanding and agreement.
As for the soldiers "being forced to put on the uniform again against their wills", they too signed the contract. There are no 4 year military
contracts. There are no 3 year military contracts. There are no 6 year military contracts.
There are only 8 year contracts. Every contract of enlistment signed by a soldier is an 8 year contract. If you want to blame someone for this fact,
you can blame the congress post-Vietnam era, but you can't blame any one president, no matter how failing.
Indeed, Bush has already imposed stage one of a new draft.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
This statement is a lie, and all those who do not understand this need to educate themselves so as not to continue to be duped by those
representatives of the left (and right) that would cause continued division amongst the people.
