|General McChrystal wants a mandatory military draft so young people will better learn to obey their Masters in the Beltway and fight in un-Constitutional wars.|
OBEY - The General wants to bring back the draft
- We need more people to fight in un-Constitutional, un-declared wars.
- Institute government forced indentured servitude to build roads.
The former US commander in Afghanistan, Stanley McChrystal, has urged that the draft be reinstated. In his view the government need lots of fresh cannon fodder to help spread the burden of fighting un-declared wars around the world. And there is the added bonus to instill a sense of "shared civic duty" among young Americans.
The country’s all-volunteer force has performed with great skill but after more than a decade of war “we’re running very, very hard and at a certain point you can’t expect it to go forever,” McChrystal said at a conference last month.
He also believes government forced indentured servitude is a good thing
McChrystal advocates a new “national service and I think you need it either at the conclusion of high school or university.” Ex-students could build roads and parks for the all-powerful State.
The general also says their is a strain on troops and their families after repeated deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, only a small fraction of the population was affected by the conflicts.
Former Pentagon chief Robert Gates said that “for most Americans the war remains an abstraction” and Admiral Mike Mullen, the ex-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he feared US civilians “do not know us” while the military had become increasingly “insular.”
But McChrystal’s comments were unusual for advocating a return to some form of conscription.
Most top brass are strong supporters of retaining a “professional” military and tend to oppose any talk of reinstating the draft, which was discarded in 1973 amid turmoil over the unpopular Vietnam War.

Then hundreds of thousands of young Americans can be sent to fight in un-Constitutional wars around the world. Big Government always needs more cannon fodder for their latest campaigns.
