    Bush’s “War Czar” yesterday said it makes sense to consider reinstating a draft. That’d be one way to drive Bush’s ratings down into single digits. I expect Lute to suddenly discover a need to spend more time with his family.

    I’ve been saying for a couple of years now that the war would end tomorrow if a draft was reinstated today.

    Let’s face it, most Americans don’t protest the war in Iraq (or Afghanistan) or even really care because it doesn’t affect them in any real way. But a draft would make it very real to a large number of young men and their families.

    You’re right, Lisa. Faced with the very real possibility of having their own sons (and daughters?) shipped off to become cannon fodder, I’d bet those arrogant, self-righteous CONservatives will get off their cushy asses pretty quickly.

    What gets me is the national security angle the idiots use. There is no reason for us to be in Iraq, there never was a legitimate reason. Iraq did not attack the U.S. and was not responsible for September 11th.

    Solution bring our all volunteer army home and let them recover from the Iraq fiasco.
