Nobody should be drafted.

But if you're going to have selective service, it would be best if it included everyone. Provided more is done to prevent sexual assault to accommodate the surge of women in the armed forces.

if you are worrying about sexual assault in the armed forces..

what do you think the enemies will do to female POWs ? don't expect humane treatment when it comes to war..

if you are thinking of joining the army .. at least learn self defense first before joining and be prepare for all worst case scenarios

I think everyone should be drafted . . . serve two years in the armed forces of the USA....

I also think you should have a 16th grade education . . . for free. (Then you serve your two years.)

If you are a conscientious objector or have religious prohibitions you can serve two years in the Peace Corps....

works for the IDF. unless you pregenant, or some other resitrictions that acutally make sence.

I don't see a problem with it - but it is wise to pick the right job for the individual. Some women are quite good at carrying heavy gear and working in extreme temperatures, and things like that - better than me, at any rate.

A draft is something I don't like the sound of these days, because of our stupid position in the middle east - helping "rebels" (read: ISIS) fight the legitimate elected government of Syria, among plenty of other things like protecting the Opium in Afghanistan. I never thought it shameful to serve the military and it's definitely necessary to maintain peace, but the head needs to be cut off before we can pretend to be noble like we like to do here in the US.

All wars are banker wars.

Dont fight their wars, subverting other nations is not in your interest, the american people's interest, and 99+% of most of the entire globe's interest.

Should some big emergency necessitate another draft, why not bring all able bodies to bear in national defense? Hopefully such an event will never occur, but better to be prepared.

"if you're thinking of joining the army", this thread is about the draft. Wouldn't have much choice in the matter, would I?

It is impractical to not take the reality of sexual assault into consideration, to say nothing of how flawed it is to hold women accountable for their own assault. At the very least, you would have to incorporate self defense against *other US soldiers* in the basic training regime, which would be dreadful for building up that patriotic nationalism most governments want in their soldiers... and a PR nightmare, to boot.

Blown up or knocked up?

I know what choice anyone that didn't want to go to war would make. People aren't being very practical on this matter.



Drafting women would have to be exceptionally low risk--more like civilian duties.

Both genders should be drafted because equality goes both ways.

Though personally I'd like to not send people to an early grave if they're unwilling to die for a war they don't support.

I personally have goals that don't involve dying in some godforsaken country because the government says I have to.

Can't argue with that.

If I were easily able to have children, I'd certainly be one of the women on craiglist looking for a man to dodge the draft with me. (Also, 'dodging the draft' is a pretty good euphemism for sex. I like the image of women writing it in post titles on craiglist with suggestive tildes and emojis accompanying it.)

if I werent past the draft age, I'd dodge that all day long. not in this day and age where people can actually find out about WHY war is happening and tell the gov to go pound sand if they want cannon fodder.
