Let’s Not Even Give the Draft a Chance

August 13, 2007

It has now become necessary for the people of the United States to take a page out of the history books, starting with the 1960s. It has been put forth that if there was a draft we would be in the streets calling for the end of the PNAC invasion of the Middle East.

Well it has come out lately, the option of a draft has always been on the table, but the administration doing the bidding for PNAC prefers to short the country of national protection. Now this administration is looking at installing a draft because of the broken military that this administration has created. The War Czar, Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute, said that the drat option has always been there.

“I think it makes sense to certainly consider it, and I can tell you, this has always been an option on the table,” he said, “but ultimately, this is a policy matter between meeting the demands for the nation’s security by one means or another.”

Charles Wrangle has wanted a draft for awhile now, his feeling being that if the threat of a draft hangs over the heads of Americans, the war would be ended sooner rather than later.

“They’ll get out of Iraq so fast if they thought that Middle America had to make any sacrifices,” Rangel said today on “Good Morning America Weekend Edition.” “But I do believe that any time our great country is at war, it shouldn’t be sacrifices just by the low or middle-income people. Everyone should share the sacrifice.”

With this option on the table we need to take the page from history that shows the great anti-war protest that help end a war not much different than this war. However, it needs to be taken to the streets before the government decides they need to be able pick those they will sacrifice. Remember it could be you, or your loved ones.

It is now that the voices need to be heard shouting down the war, instead of betting that it won’t be done because it might be political suicide. It is up to us.
