Senate Told It's Time To Reinstate Military Draft
There must've been something else in the news Tuesday, because we totally missed this sorta interesting hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee about reinstating the draft.
Pentagon wonk Lawrence Korb told the senators that the volunteer military was never designed for a "protracted ground war," and a draft will be required to continue feeding American bodies into the Baghdad meat grinder.
National Review blogger John Derbyshire added that if pussy college kids were being blown to bits in Iraq, they wouldn't be murdered on American campuses.
