To all you that have posted who dislike action.what pure pitty from you!!! ."Oh I hate the draft,oh I don't want to go to war".What a bunch of crap.You just want some one else to fight for your freedom!!! You know what, if I went to war and they gave me a piece of paper that said the names of the people that I was fighting for and your name was on it and every ones else to who dislikes fighting for what they have,I would cross out your names and light it on fire and say "screw you".It does not matter wheather you are here or over in Afghanistan,or for that fact any where in the world.You are at war!!!! cause you know what the next attack could be a place where you are at and you die.Just wait you will feel the breeze.All those people died for now reason.And to be honest with ya I could not care less how many people die over there that support terrorism or that hate the USA for that fact.

yeah, so anyways.
If there is a draft, its gonna be a bad one, because when carter came into office, he made it so even if your in college, you must go to war if your drafted. I think that if you're in school, you shouldnt be forced to go. But if your not in school, thats a different situation. Students will have a VERY difficult time if they have to go to war. But in this case, a draft probably wont be necessary since SO many people are so enthusiastic about voluntarily fighting. But if you're not a student, hey, its your country, go fight for it.

NWAirlines, you might want to check on what you think can and can't be done as far as the draft is concerned. If you are an only child you CAN be drafted but not sent into a combat situation. I say this from experience, my husband was drafted in Viet Nam, and he is an only child.
BryanBecker-Thanks for what you said. I am so tired of hearing people whine about "somebody should take care of all these terrorists" but when push come to shove, they aren't willing to step up to the plate and do their part to help. Yes, I would be bothered if the draft were reinstated, because I have a 22yr. old son, but I also understand that something need to be done to stop this SOB.

NWAirlines-no problem at all! Just pleaase don't do anything rash, OK?
SophieMaltese-what you said about your dad and about my husband is the case unless o curse something has changed, but I don't think that it has.
DeltaOwnsAll- I haven't a clue about your being drafted, especially being put into a combat position, but just remember, there are many places other than
combat to serve if God forbid anything does happen.
But let us all hope and pray that it doesn't come to any draft.

Sorry for the confusion but when I did the bio I kind of blew it! Definately female, that is why earlier I said that my HUSBAND had been drafted during Viet Nam and is an only child so could not be sent into combat.
