What should we do

i was recently going thru the calander and was noticed that most of us are 17+. Very soon to be legal for draft and having to enlist, so how do ya'll feel about declaring war? Do you really think we should ,even though a lot of people including vertrans say we should not? ......just a thought.

Bush, Powell, and Rumsfeld keep insisting that if we went to war in Iraq there would probably be no draft, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

ems21: currently, women do not have to register for the selective service, but they can if they want, in which case if there was a draft they would be selected as randomly as anyone else. Because of this there's almost no point in women registering for the draft because there chances of getting picked are slim to none. They might as well enlist if they want to fight.

On a side note, I can't be drafted (I dont think), as I don't meet the weight requirement for my height

I belive you have to stay registered until age 25.

Not to mention if they instute the draft Bush's popularity would take a shit.

i dont think we should because its pointless. Its not going to stop anything. it will just provoke more attacks and Tony Blair is a wanker if he thinks GB should start on them too.

I think we should defend the country and if we went to war I'd probably have to fight because I'm in my third year of army cadets, and I'm a girl and yes I still would fight for the country!

maybe if he didn't suck so much. if anything i want the dwarf.

i wouldn't enlist in this war as i am not eager to kill any one but if a draft was instituted and i got drafted i wouldn't go to canada to escape it, i would go and fight.


it seems to me that a lot of you are ill-informed about this war. so i pose a question: how can you have a real opinion on this war when you don't even have the details?

I'm totally against going to war with Iraq. We have very little, if any support from other countries, and no substantial evidence of anything-which is kinda sad, since Powell has already made his speech to the UN. The entire Bush administration is full of shit...except for maybe Condelleza Rice...she's the only one that doesn't seem to be so war-minded.

We have evidence. SADAMM HAS WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION HE IS PLANNING TO USE. dur. you must not follow what's going on. he has proven that we cannot trust him. If we can get rid of those weapons, we will save more lives than lost. Everyone's all pissy about it. here's your choice: Millions of innocent people killed by terrorist attacks OR an attack on Iraq. You may be anti- action now, but when an Iraqi terroist releases a biological agent in your city and someone you love dies, you want be spewing your "no proof, let's talk it out" crap. Talking hasn't worked.

War never solved anything, except for slavery, communism, oppresion and genocide.

I am confused on the subject, on one hand (and it is very small) I kind of think that we should so we could defend our country, but then on the other hand (the big one) I realy don't think that war is a good thing to declare right now, because I just don't think that Bush is playing with a full deck of cards and he probably would drop the nuke on them, and then we would be in more trouble because every other country would go world war 3 on our buts! But that is just my opinion.
