One of my biggest regrets.

As it stands now, if I am ever drafted, they will have to literally drag me out of my house, and maybe not even alive. I will not kill or be killed because someone told me so. If I am going to die defending my country and home, I will do so with whatever I have on me defending against ANYONE who wish me harm.

But who cares, this is just a depressed rambling from a pseudo-intellectual, wannabe anarchist, autistic bum.


No you will get arrested and possibly get sent to jail for years unless you ditch the country.

So better getting packing if they come calling.

So what r you gunna do try and beat the policemen to death who come to get you with the spoon you got on you that you were eating ramen with?

You gunna get a gun and shoot them dead? They are trained and wont hesitate to smoke your ass if you even show them your intentions.

Then you catch a case for murder... of a policeman... which means you got no way out. The justice system does not take kindly to members of law enforcement being murdered. And then you get life in prison for "standing up for defending your country" or whatever edgy mentality you got going.

If you don't want to die serve a bit of time but go peacefully or skip the county. Take the lesser evil of these scenarios



PENALTIES
Though the last military draft in the United States occurred during the Vietnam War, young men must still register for a possible draft with the Selective Service System. Refusing to register can result in denial of financial aid and admission to state colleges and university. A person may forfeit possible employment opportunities with the government. Penalties could also include 10 years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines.



Exactly what I plan. Granted, it's probably going to go as well as you described, but I'd rather die or be arrested in my own country rather then halfway on the other side of the world. They want me dead, fine, but on my terms, not theirs.

Unless we get into a war with NK, but I would have willing signed up for that. For stupid reasons of course.

Well, "Believing NK to be any realistic threat to any place in the real world outside of Kim's loopy imagination" would certainly qualify as "Stupid"...

And on the subject, just how many "I don't wanna die in NK!" posts HAVE we made since last Tuesday?

Well if this whole Korean War thing happens it'll probably be quick. Like I said, the U.S. and it's allies (basically their commonwealths) will Aldnoah/Zero them in a week, even if nukes are used.

I think I am still registered but am not eligible for service due to a T9-T12 spinal fusion in 2008 and a number of other injuries. The armed forces will have to be pretty desperate to start taking people like me into the draft. I can't ruck a pack for days on end or meet the requirements to serve for the armed forces, but I have tremendous respect for the soldiers and warriors that have fought for our great nation and sacrificed their lives. And if we ever see enemy forces on our home turf, you can bet I'll be fighting the good fight and doing what I can to survive and see that the enemy is defeated.

Forget Selective Service Registration. I'll just volunteer to any military branch as long as they accept veteran over 40 when a major war comes.

I can't wait til they add women to the draft. When I turned 19 I received a letter threatening me with a 10,000 dollar fine or 10 years in jail if I did not register for the draft within a month. I had assumed men were just in it by default. Women should get this letter as well.

Funny how they can serve and constantly complain about how the military is sexist or something. But don't want to be the draft. Ha.

Also, in a war with NK it is highly unlikely the draft would be called. This isn't the same world it was during the last Korean war. This Empire is far more powerful than it was then.. and with.. many, many more options.

Why, in the Nine Hells, would the US need conscripts for a war with North Korea?

You're going to open by glassing the place in retaliation for Kim the-reasonably-Sane doing it to South Korea and with the Chinese coming in from the North you're not going to need more than about 10 guys to sweep up the remains.

Just don't start a war with China and you're good. Oh, some companies will whine about "rare earth deposits", but ignore those guys and their briefcases full of dollars. There's other deposits as the Chinese found a couple of years back when they tried to put the squeeze on and a bunch of other nations suddenly found a lucrative market for their own mining output. And don't forget to slap the Defence contractors when they're fearmongering. Easy.

It is the Law

Virtually all male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, residing in the United States, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service.

The law says men must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. That means men are required to register with Selective Service sometime during the 30 days before their 18th birthday, their 18th birthday, and the following 29 days after their 18th birthday – that is a 60-day registration period.

Men who do not register with Selective Service within the 60-day window are technically in violation of the law and should register as soon as possible. Late registrations are accepted up to the 26th birthday. However, once a man reaches his 26th birthday and still has not registered with Selective Service, it is too late!

It’s important to know that even though a man is registered, he will not automatically be inducted into the military. Registering with Selective Service does not mean you are joining the military.

In a crisis requiring a draft, men would be called in a sequence determined by random lottery number and year of birth. Then, they would be examined for mental, physical, and moral fitness by the military before being deferred or exempted from military service or inducted into the Armed Forces.

Reasons to Register



Registration is the Law — A man’s only duty right now under the Military Selective Service Act is to register at age 18 and then to let Selective Service know within 10 days of any changes in the information he provided on his registration form until he turns 26 years old.

Fairness and Equity — By registering all eligible men, Selective Service ensures a fair and equitable draft, if ever required. However, there has not been a draft since 1973.

Insurance for the Nation — By registering, a man’s voluntary participation helps provide a hedge against unforeseen threats. It is a relatively low-cost insurance policy for our nation.

Civic Duty — It’s your responsibility to ensure that young men 18 through 25 understand the law so they can make an informed decision about registration compliance. Currently, more than 90 percent of eligible young men are registered. It’s a civic duty of every young man to comply with the law.

Protect Eligibility for Future Benefits — It’s what a man’s got to do. By registering, a young man stays eligible for jobs, college loans and grants, job training, driver’s license in most states, and U.S. citizenship for immigrant men.


Isn't this against human rights?


Against Human Rights? Are you joking? Who do you think enforces rules like that? Do you think that just because a court said something others will follow? It's the military that guarantees that right. That's why they have that privilege to draft.
