Is that a breeze in here?
Or does someone else feel a d-r-a-f-t coming too?
In their Ellicott City kitchen, Jeff Amoros's parents handed their son the Selective Service registration form that arrived shortly after his 18th birthday. For them, it evoked dark memories of the Vietnam era. For Amoros, it meant: "I'm old enough to die for my country now."
Rarely in the more than 30 years since the draft was abolished has the Selective Service triggered such angst. Two years into the Iraq war, concern that the draft will be reinstated to supplement an overextended military persists -- no matter how often, or emphatically, President Bush and members of Congress say it won't.
Yeah, refresh my memory...would that be the same occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave who conflated Saddam and Al-Qaida? Who said "Osama Dead or Alive"? Who said "Mission Accomplished"? Who said he served honorably in the Tx ANG?
Yeah that one. Cowardly Lying Codpiece.
Draft, take it to the bank, my guess.
