Can You Smell What's Cooking - Return of the Draft

Frequent tours for U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan have stressed the all-volunteer force and made it worth considering a return to a military draft, President Bush's new war adviser said Friday.

"I think it makes sense to certainly consider it," Army Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute said in an interview with National Public Radio's "All Things Considered."

"And I can tell you, this has always been an option on the table. But ultimately, this is a policy matter between meeting the demands for the nation's security by one means or another."

For those of you that are skeptical about the draft returning, I ask you to reflect on all that has been going on during the last 7 years. Do you not believe the unthinkable is actually possible? I say every elected-official's son or daughter of age goes first.
