    “War on the backs of young people who have no choice is worse than war with a draft.”

    If you are drafted, you have no choice whatsoever. I don’t get your point.

    As far as Vietnam goes, over 58,000 Americans died in that war. Was that number acceptable to finally get people outraged? Are a certain number of deaths okay during a draft to change opinions of the war. Do you mind if it’s your 18-year-old kid who doesn’t want to go and sees no reason for the war in the first place? I don’t want my kid dead so Haliburton can make a ton of money. The casual attitude of people toward other people’s loss and death blows my mind. It always will.

  • More of the same lame excuses is exactly right, DW.

    I’m feeling almost sick from the other thread where people are waving the support the troops flag but are unwilling or unable to articulate exactly why these troops should be at war(s) in the first place. I’m rather disgusted. Hmmmf!

    I don’t understand people who advocate for a draft into needless and perpetual wars. You want fairness in sending these young people off to get maimed or die, but you do not question the need for the wars?

    My comment was labeled sick for having the audacity to say aloud the true reason for America’s war on everyone across the globe. But instead of standing up against the atrocity of unnecessary war, you want your kid, my kid, and everyone else’s kid to go die. For what? Have the courage of your convictions since you are so casually tossing people into the fire.

    What is the reason that Americans should be drafted or volunteer to go to wars right now. Are thousands of foreign troops lining up at the Canadian border about to crisscross our country and devastate our lives? Are they banging on your door as we speak? Are you threatened right now? Who the hell is threatened in this country right now that you are so willing to send your own grandson to die.

    You called my comment sick. What is the true sickness of the whole thing?

    My reply button isn’t working or I would respond directly.

    The question posed is “if we need a war.” When we actually need a war I will be 100% behind those who volunteer to defend our country. This has not been the case. I’m sorry, but if you aren’t part of the solution, then you are part of the problem.

    Anyway, this is off-topic and it’s too late to discuss this extremely important issue.

    Respect to all with differing opinions.

    I meant to respond to RevBev. I wasn’t able to edit my post.

    You are entitled to your opinion as am I. I did not degrade the soldier in any way. I feel nothing but pity for him.

    He wants to move off a permanent war footing…sometime in the future.

    They are clapping for the injured soldier because he has made them wealthy. This is so sick.

    Prepare the workforce. Train the workforce. Education for the sake of corporations.

    Prepare the robots for their life of servitude so that the few can maintain their wealth.
