I'm rarely scared, but it's happening now.
The words WAR and DRAFT have been bandied about today, and I don't like them. Being a 21 year old male in the US is not what I want to be right now.
My only solice is that I'm too smart to be a grunt. Perhaps I'd get to be an officer and send lil 18 year olds to their deaths. Much more fun.
I'm sleeping under my bed for the next few months...
They never look under your bed.
Draft flew through my mind too...

Tis a possiblity.
Im not sure if I would qualify ( seasonal asthma, back and knee injuries ) but dont get worried just yet.
And if they do decide they want me i will dislocate my knee again my damn self if i have to. I want nothing to do with war.
But it shouldnt come to that.
Yeah, I doubt that it'll come to that.
But still, there's going to be some serious shit coming of this, but I doubt that it'll be flat out war.
Cruise missiles maybe, but you don't need to draft for them.

Is *that* where all my officers were?? The sneaky rascals!
Don't forget that right now you're hearing adrenaline and testosterone speaking.
Yeah, not much of a consolation...
Come back to us Stan, you're missed...
i won't let them take you. *flexes her muscles*

fortunately for me, i probably have too many health issues to be a grunt as well. even so, once they re-open the borders, care to move to canada with me?
I'm there dude!
Just say when.
(sorry, been lax on the responses.. ;o)
I doubt they're gonna reinstate a draft.
If they did, wouldn't be too hard to avoid.
Be a full-time student.
Make comments about "Oh, our fucking drill instructor's HAD it when we get to the rifle range..."
They don't give people like that guns.
I'm legally blind anyway though, so no worries.
