There Will Be A Draft After All!

I have had this running argument with Adam over at Lost Adam regarding a draft. He and many of his “followers” have been strongly convinced that there will be a draft and I have been saying all along that we do not need a draft nor will there be one.

It looks like the Big Dog was wrong on this one. It looks like there will be a draft and it will take place soon. As a result, many young men will be selected to go to specialized training. Once they are conditioned they will receive special protective equipment and they will go out and do battle. Some of them will be injured. Some will be maimed and some will never lead the same life they had prior to the injuries. Unfortunately, there is always the possibility that some of them could die though I would argue that this is unlikely given the training and the quality of the protective equipment.

I have been taken completely by surprise. I have to admit that I did not see a draft coming. I am eating humble pie with crow on top. It looks like the libs over at Adam’s site were absolutely right. I only hope the mothers of these young men can adjust to the life they will have to accept as a result of the draft. Well, at least I know they will be in better shape as a result of the draft. I only hope they will still have faith in a country that resorted to drafting them into service on a battlefied that has constant aerial attacks while they fight it out in the trenches.

You can read the whole terrible thing here (this one will hit close to home for my friend Surfside).

    Big Dog, I must say I saw this draft coming — actually been waiting for it. I say there’s nothing like putting fine young men into uniforms and placing them on a field of battle. The sooner, the better.

    Bring it on!

    It would be a funny joke if the all volunteer army hadn’t had too few people volunteering in the past few months. I pray you are right about there being no draft.

  3. Adam says:

    …and I wouldn’t say I have followers either. I’m not sure why you always talk bad about my liberal readers. It’s not their fault Wanker yanks your chain. You deserve t most of the time.

    IT is to the credit of all those who have volunteered that a nation can concentrate on this new draft. But for the bravery and dedication of U.S. service volunteers, there might be a season for no contest but terror vs. freedom.

    We thank you.

    It is a compliment to say you have followers. I think it is great that people read the site and comment.
    I never deserved to be disrespected the Wanker does. He got what he deserved because his mother did not teach him respect or manners.
