The Coming Draft. With the military facing a dramatic overextension of troops and a rapidly declining enlistment, a draft could come as early as 2005. [AlterNet]

If Bush remains in office, we will have a draft. There is no way tey can maintain the military readiness they claim to need without one. Almost 50% of the soldiers in Iraq will not re-enlist. The Guard and Resreves are pretty wel down. ONly by bringing back the draft will they be able to keep it going. The numbers and the legislation are all there. The American people are not prepared for it but I am sure that this Adminstration will coordinate events to make it seem necessary.If they are elected this time.

yep, there likely will be a draft, at least of certain experts. really there has to be because no one will volunteer to serve under this president, at least no one that I know and respect, he's a walking death sentence of sorts and with that a bane to the concept of a volunteer army.
