Rumsfeld rejects idea of returning to the draft
By Guy Taylor
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
"Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld yesterday dismissed the notion of reinstating the military draft, saying that the Pentagon, if needed, can dig deeper into Reserve and National Guard forces to relieve troops deployed in the war on terrorism."
JAG Hunter observation: Talk about a draft is premature. Because the United States is a dedicated target (and it is), once bombs begin to explode in American malls and on U.S. trains with regularity, once the American public recognizes the very real need for troops defending our homeland - and finally realizes we don't have enough homeland defenders who are actually home (think National Guard) - then talk about a draft will become as credible as expedient and will rise up as more than political posturing.
