The real truth is:
The Armed forces are a 100% voluntary force, the draft IS completely unnecessary.
There is real support among the populous, at least among the people who understand what is really going on in the world today.
I agree with you that this story is generated to scare people. This is part of the effort to make the war unpopular, there by making the Republican's unpopular; to give the democrat's more votes and more power to govern as they wish.
It's politics, nothing more.
