Dr Strangelove Lives...

"The USA in Iraq is not fighting a war. It is mobilizing itself for an expanded war of conquest in the oil lands."

I know Dubya and his neo-con cronies are stupid enough to contemplate such madness, but such folly could not happen without the support of the American people. Given the latter's growing contempt for the Iraq fiasco, I can't see much of an appetite for further fanciful military escapades.

And didn't I read that West Point has a 10% shortfall in recruits for next year ?

D emocracy is, indeed, a check on the schemes of madmen.

Dream on, boys...

It will take a bigger attack than 9/11, but it's quite possible.

9/11 just showed what could be done in one morning.  Dubya began it talking about educational reform and ended by talking about an invasion of Iraq, and they eventually got their invasion.

So what if recruiting for armed services academies is down?  Once the draft is re-instituted, the numbers will rebound.  

Just let the terrorists attack America and then put a photo of an Ayatolla on the TV screen.  In 24 hours, Iraq-based US military forces will be on the ground in Iran and all males ages 18-35 will be required to report to their local draft boards to receive an induction order.

America will have no choice.

"supporting proof follows"

This is the "Catch"...you do not have proof but a guess. You might even say an educated guess, but a guess all the same.

What would we do with all this oil? We are switching to alternate fuels right now in the USA. In fact "Uncle Sam" said he would give everyone $3000 off their taxes if they buy a hybrid car.

People are looking more and more to clean energy in the USA. We will be off the oil much sooner than other countries. Look to China and Russia moving in on those sandy oil fields in the middle-east not the USA.

You seem to have missed the whole point....we went to Iraq to liberate the Iraqi people and stand trial a madman....we did not go there for oil.

Re-instituting a draft

Raising the prospects of a draft is pure fantasy. In a democracy, a draft would only wqork in situations where there was widespread support for the conflict. An increasing majority of Americans do not support the Iraq war.

And what will Dubya's policy be on draft-dodgers ? That is, perhaps, the only issue on which he is an irrefutable authority.

American Idiots conned into war for Israel

AMERICAN IDIOT

Don't want to be an American idiot

Don't want a nation under the new mania

And can you hear the sound the sound of hysteria

The subliminal mind-**** America

Welcome to a new kind of tension

All across the alienation

Where everything isn't meant to be OK

Television dreams of tomorrow

We're not the ones who're meant to follow

For that's enough to argue

So maybe I'm the faggot American

I'm not a part of a redneck agenda

Now everybody do the propaganda

And sing along to the age of paranoia

Welcome to a new kind of tension

All across the alienation

Where everything isn't meant to be OK

Television dreams of tomorrow

We're not the ones who're meant to follow

For that's enough to argue

Don't want to be an American idiot

One nation controlled by the media

Information age of hysteria

It's going out to idiot America

johnners, a draft is as impossible as 9/11

You cite American public opinion as not supporting a draft and continued eroding public support for Iraq.

I say it's as simple as another 9/11, and all our security experts agree that America is no safer from terrorism today than it was on 9/10/2001.

Just let terrorists attack again, put the photo of an Ayatolla on the television screen, and roll tanks toward Tehran from Afghanistan and Iraq both.  As the  newscasters announce the unanimous recommendation of the 9/11 for a draft by presidential Executive Order, images of young men waiting in line to volunteer will splash across the news.  President Bush will sign the draft order as the 9/11 Commission stands behind him.

America will have no choice.
