Damn!

As I recall, that was a cornerstone of the last presidential election ("don't vote for Bush, he's gonna reinstate the draft").

I think it's a BAD idea.

Our current military is structured to be a volunteer force. Unlike the old days, there's no room for the unwilling, unmotivated, or untrainable. Today's military is more skilled and educated than the past - not a lot of potato peelers. Much of the unskilled work has been outsourced.

In fact, they reject more people mid-enlistment for "unsuitability" than ever before. They don't have the time, energy, or patience needed to shape up those that aren't "with the program".
