[ Looking on the bright side – ‘The Draft’ was one of the factors that helped end the Vietnam War.
well … … it helped end the Vietnam War for Americans, anyway ]
Gen. Stanley McChrystal,
the former top commander of international forces in Afghanistan,
said this week that the United States should bring back the draft if it ever goes to war again.
“I think we ought to have a draft.
I think if a nation goes to war,
it shouldn’t be solely be represented by a professional force,
because it gets to be unrepresentative of the population,”
at a late-night event
June 29 at the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival.
“I think if a nation goes to war,
every city needs to be at risk.
You make that decision and everybody has skin in the game.”

Does he means ‘the collective you’ ?
This guy’s mental. ]
