Thanks to Charles 2 and his blog The Fulcrum for the heads up:
For those who haven't taken seriously the thought of possibly renewing the draft, this headline in today's edition of Army Times should interest you:
Myers: Call-ups expected after election
Of course, Myers refers to General Richard B. Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Unfortunately, you must be a paid subscriber to access the story, but when you consider that the military services are already streched to nearly the breaking point, and that in many cases the National Guard and Reserves are expected to not meet recruiting goals, where do you think they will find the men and women to do the job???
And when the expected outcry comes against renewing the draft, the neocoms will challenge the patriotism of those who oppose them...as they always do, claiming that to do so would be to be in cohorts with our enemies.
We just have to be ready with the voice to answer in kind...
