Now I see why the Democrats were so sure the draft was going to come back.

It’s because they’re the ones who keep trying to bring it back.

    Rangel did the same thing around the 2004 election cycle. It’s not going to happen, just like it didn’t the las time. In fact, he authored the bill and then voted against it anyway.

    I think that this is more of a political statement than anything else. The interesting question is whether these war-mongers would support war if they had to send their own kids to war.

    Is anyone really “mongering” anymore?

    And plenty of societies have been happy to send their children to war.

    “Come back with your shield or on it,” is how wives and mothers would send their loved ones off from Sparta.

    100% conscription is no guaranty of peace or wisdom.

    gee Tim do you remember how bad that conscript army we had in the late 60’s and early 70’s was? Of course not you were not in it, even though you were old enough. But my father was I remember the stories he would tell me. I love how people like you who have never served love to bash everyone else for supporting the war. What makes you the expert Tim. I for one intend to push both of my sons to serve I believe they owe it to their nation. Even if it is a short enlistment(under 3 years) I think they should do it. If either one of them serves that will make the 4th generation of my family to have military service. Just because people support the use of military force doesn’t make them a war monger. I find it funny that someone such as yourself who has never put his ass on the line for his country thinks he gets to tell everyone else what they can think or if they can support their nations war effort. What gives you that right Tim?

    The force that has been forged since the all Vol concept was started is one of the finest fighting forces in the world, no army on the planet can stand up to it and win when it is allowed to fight as it can. But now we are going to let asshat moonbats like Charlie Rangle weaken that force and start us on the road to destroying that force I don’t think so.

    Lucky for the United States even the Rats will run from this idea in Congress.
