WASHINGTON (AP) - Frequent tours for U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan have stressed the all-volunteer force and made it worth considering a return to a military draft, President Bush's new war adviser said Friday.
"I think it makes sense to certainly consider it," Army Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute said in an interview with National Public Radio's "All Things Considered."
Shit that the Chimp is 'considering' today becomes policy in 6 months. I won't tell you 'I told you so' when they come for your kid.
Tip o' the Brain to Joe for the link.
And you know why they're considering this? Good ol' Cenk Uygur:
According to McClatchy Newspapers, Dick Cheney is on the precipice of convincing Bush to attack Iran. Diplomacy has gone nowhere because Cheney set a precondition that could not be met (stop enriching uranium before we negotiate over whether you should enrich uranium). There are almost no competent pro-diplomacy advocates inside the administration. All the generals who disagreed have been replaced. And the so-called opposition party is the biggest set of push-overs in the history of this country.
Do you think the Democrats will be able to stop Bush if he decides to strike Iran? If you do, you have no idea what you're talking about. It is an IGNORANT position to think that Democrats would even fight back against military strikes aimed at Iran, let alone effectively stop them. The Democrats WILL fold like a house of cards the minute the first bomb is in the air. They will rally around the flag like a bunch of trained Pavlovian dogs.
You don't think they're gonna stop with air strikes, do ya? The Iranians are going to retaliate against our troops in Iraq and, seeing the great job we're doing 'winning hearts and minds' there, I'm sure the locals are more than willing to help them. If we hit Iran, the draft will be just around the corner.
