There has been much hype recently over the Pentagon's "oiling up" of draft boards around the country. Liberals have predictably been alarmed over this issue. But I say, isn't bringing back the draft a GOOD THING?
Given the fact that the majority of the US Military is composed of people of color and poor whites, shouldn't White Middle and Upper class elites be compelled to fight and die in the wars, which after all they overwhelmingly support?
Remember, the vast majority of White Middle Class supported the invasion of Iraq not to mention Afghanistan, yet the vast majority of them ALSO OPPOSE THE DRAFT. In other words, they love war--just as long as someone else is doing the fighting and dying.
To be frank, most Americans are selfish pigs. They will wave their flags, and support the troops and support every murderous war the USA is currently engaged in, because they believe it is nothing more than a video game. However, if these White Elites and their pampered children were faced with the prospect of being sent off to die in these wars, I think it is safe to say that they would undergo an "attitude readjustment" shall we say.
Just imagine the look on Biff or Muffy (or the Bush Twins, for that matter) when they got their draft notice and their 60 days notice to ship out to Iraq! I would pay money to see this.
More importantly, from a radical's perspective, if the draft were reinstituted, you can be sure that ANTIWAR SENTIMENT HERE IN THE USA WOULD SKYROCKET! Hell, the reinstitution of the draft might even be the catalyst for (gulp) a revolution in the USA! Isn't that what Radicals want?
For all these reasons, I say bring back the draft! If Americans want war, they should be ready, willing, and able to fight and die in these wars themselves.
Tell that to you local Patriotic Chickenhawk.
IF AMERICA WANTS WAR. BRING 'EM ON! (Your spoiled children that is)
Your own transfer tube personally autographed by George Bush and Dick Cheney is ready and waiting....
