DODGY DRAFT: Rep. Charlie Rangel is proposing a draft. Read Sgt. Stryker's post, now. Everyone's favorite military-blogger touches on a few reasons why this is a deeply evil idea. If extrodinary circumstances required many more warm bodies on a battlefield than is currently forseeable, only then would we even consider a draft. Rangel simply wants Americans to feel the pain of disagreeing with him (he's antiwar, naturally). A draft would weaken our military prowess and put Americans in more danger. It shouldn't surprise anyone that this doesn't bother Charlie.
