So how many of our OT members are aged 20-36?

If we can just get all the NeoCon Bushies to either join up, get their sons and daughters or grandsons and granddaughters to join up, we MIGHT not need the draft to crank up again. I think its time to put up or shut up.

You have a Republican Congressman or Senator that has kids and grandkids that are not in the service, ask your media to find out why they aren't supporting their President. Call every day.

Otherwise, boys and girls, if Iran becomes more than a surgical strike [and I am betting they won't roll easily], then we will have a solid war zone that will stretch from Syria in the East to Afghanistan in the West. If Israel is pulled in, the zone moves from the Mediterranean to Tora Bora.

Now that will ripple some karma.

It would be unsurprising and in character if Bush bombs or invades Iran

Since it is clearly obvious by now that President Bush acts on what HE THINKS is right, without any regard whatsoever, to what his advisors, the judiciary, the congress, or the public thinks, so he would do it if he decides he wants to.

A fake, trumped excuse of some sort would be manufactured, just like before.

2009 is a long time away.

He has made it abundantly clear that he is going to do exactly what HE personally wants to do, and any mess that is made, will be for his successor to clean up.

He believes himself to be accountable to no one, and acts accordingly.

Nothing short of impeachment, conviction and removal from office and imprisonment will stop Bush and Cheney at this point. Anything less than that misses the point completely.

I don't want them imprisoned. It will be a vacation for them.

As a CiC, the punishment of treason for him and the Dick is firing squad. I want them to pay with their bloods. Nothinng short of that will satisfy me.

If done the way it was last time, they start with the 19YOs and start working up through about 34. They take volunteers up to 43 in the National Guard right now and are unable to meet numbers in most states.

Back in the 60s and 70s one of the ways that the local Selective Service Board would fill its numbers would have local judges make judicial decisions/sentencing based on volunteering for the service. Sort of "you can volunteer for the Army for 3 years OR 12 months in the clink". The higher numbers of volunteers in an area kept the draft numbers for that area down. Of course it put marginal volunteers in the infantry. This only worked for the Army since the rest of the branches were volunteer already and actually had standards.

Given their present trajectory it would not surprise me if a lot more people joined you in that way of thinking within another year or so

You would probably have to buy them from a Haliburton-related company. They were awarded the contract for the Presidential/Vice-presidential executions. There was no tender/RFP process.
