Posted: Feb 15, 2013 5:58 PM CST In an interview Friday morning Democratic U.S. Representative Charles Rangel said he is planning to introduce legislation that would bring back a draft and include women. Just last month the Department of Defense overturned a rule from the 1990's barring women from combat roles. Rangel wants to take it a step further and says now it's time for every American, man and woman, to share the responsibility of war.

EU slaps tougher sanctions against N. Korea nuke test
BRUSSELS, Feb. 18 (Yonhap) -- The European Union governments agreed on Monday to tighten sanctions against North Korea for its recent nuclear test, diplomats in Brussels said.
Despite repeated international warnings, North Korea conducted its third nuclear test by detonating what it called a miniaturized atomic device on Feb. 12, drawing a chorus of worldwide condemnations and prompting the international community to begin devising sterner punishments against it. The North also conducted nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009.
it would be wise to learn some South Korean as well.
The North Korea language is referred as "Cultured Language"or locally called munhwa, which uses the regional dialect of P'yongyang as its proper standard.
The "Standard Language"of North Korea is (p'yojuno) which is based on the Seoul dialect. North Korean citizens describe Standard Language as "coquettish" and "decadent,". Abundance of English and Japanese loanwords are found in this language. There were two documents published "instructions," by Kim Il Sung, "Some Problems Related to the Development of the Korean Language," promulgated in 1964, and "On the Development of the National Language: Conversations with Linguists," published in 1966 which define basic policy concerning Cultured Language.
would you still that way if say LA got a nuke or Hawaii did? I do not think we would use nuke for nuke. I think it would be a B2 or a Toma hawk first then ground troops, facing 1mil DPRK regulars, just waiting to spill blood or so says DPRK. Then there might be China just like the first time, only more of them.

There's no reason to call up a Draft at the moment. We are winding down in Afghanistan, we're mostly out of Iraq and the US military is over capacity on recruits. But yes if there's ever a draft again I imagine women will be included.
I'd call you out on Hagel but someone beat me to it lol.
