Tens of thousands more US troops will be needed in Iraq (news - web sites), if Washington is to subdue the stubborn rebel insurgency there, a top US lawmaker said.

Arizona senator John McCain told NBC television that as many as 50,000 more US soldiers will have to be sent to Iraq.

"We still need more troops. We still need more people there," US Senator John McCain told NBC television Sunday.

When asked how many additional forces would have to be deployed, the maverick Republican senator answered "I would say at least 40,000 or 50,000 more," adding that it will likely also be necessary to increase the size of the army and the marine corps. =story&cid=1521&e=1&u=/afp/20041121/pl_afp/us_iraq_troops_041121220623

If the Bush administration decides to take on Iran in addition to Iraq we will be looking at the draft. Even if the Bush administration doesn't go after Iran, we may be looking at a draft. Then, if the citizens of America decide not to involve themselves you will most assuredly either work for the US corporation or be jailed...all over two preemptive wars. Long Live America, the United States is running its course.
