    I really don't get the point
    the US has enough nukes to just kill any one they wanted. Why do they need so many soldiers? Don't they already have the largest army in the world? They should be like Canada, all soldiers are voluntary, they were never drafted not even during the world wars

    Seems like a massive gamble. Firstly, i dont conscription's made governments hesitate beforehand to go blazing into combat. Secondly, how is forcing someone to war 10,000 miles away supposed to get the job done?

    Actually the US has enough nukes to destroy the world. The last tally was about 30,000 nuclear warheads

    If war was simply about who has the most/biggest nukes, the Cold War wouldve gotten a bit warm, probably around '62

    Canada did instate the draft in the late days of WWII. W.L.M. King wanted it, and English Canada wanted it, Quebec did not.

    I think the proposal by the representative is interesting, but also he is delerious if he thinks that will pass in either house. And hey, if the draft starts, I invite all deserters to my house. And Canada ain't too bad, I HAVE been to Buffalo...

    But how easy is it to insult Buffalo? It actually ain't too bad down there - except the Arena looks piss poor and the weather is as bad / worse than it is here in Toronto.

    You can leave nukes out of it since the US won't use them. Hes speaking in terms of what happens if we have to launch a land assault in Korea or Iran. You cant just nuke somebody you don't like, it pisses people off and cripples the environment to the point were it would bite us in the ass.

    WW1 as well, but very few actually served, 450,000 were conscripted but only 35,000 showed up less then 5000 ever saw action because the war ended soon afterwards...

    Then get off UCP and sign up for the mother ****ing army.

    The draft is quite possibly the most disgusting human rights violation ever. Forcing young people to go kill people and risk their life doing it?!

    If the U.S government really gave a shit about its people it'd try a little thing called "communication" (look it up in the dictionary republicans) rather than lets smoke em' out!

    And then theres the whole little guilt trip of if you refuse to get drafted or avoid it you hate your country just because you won't die for it?

    Some people are not worthy of air.

    They were pardoned before. Lets hypothetically say that the draft is reinstated. The uprising and boycotting would be so massive they would have no other choice than to pardon them again.

    This legislation is a wast of time and a waste of tax payer dollars.
