Rep Charles Rangel, Korean war veteran and bronze star awardee, introduced a bill recently for universal military service. The draft. It's less than DOA, it's not even going to get to committee. However, his idea is that the burden of conflict should be carried by all americans, not just those who volunteer, who generally are not children of the middle and upper classes. The Pentagon says they do not want forced conscripts, that they will not serve the military well. But the idea of service to your country is appealing for a host of reasons (especially after a time of such corporate greed and corruption).
