The Draft Headed Toward Iran

I feel like a coal miner's canary.

Reinstate the draft. We need more soldiers! Our military is broken, worn to a frazzle. How can we possibly launch preemptive attacks against Iran and the newly labeled terrorists, "The Republican Guard" ?

General Lute was the one chosen to seed the draft idea so as not to tarnish golden boy, General David Petraeus. Just plant the seed in minds of Americans, stir up some discussion, reseed several weeks later, spread a thick layer of manure, wet it down, and watch it grow. Soon, because attentions spans are short, they'll be claiming the draft was always the answer to "fightin' 'em over there so's we don't have to fight 'em here", and line up to sacrifice their children in Bush's nuclear war.

The Bush propaganda machine has been busy, busy, busy! Iran has been the featured evil-doer on CNN for weeks now, FOX is foaming at the mouth in anticipation of the up and coming nuclear strikes against Iran, and eager Armegeddonists are so joyful that prerapture ejaculations have become the norm. It seems our heroes, Joe Lieberman and Dick Cheney, have been working hard to end the Bush presidency with a bang.

Isn't it wonderful? Congress won't impeach the presiding bastards or cut military funds, but America has put nuclear war back on the table! The American War machine is HUNGRY for bodies and bundles of cash. What better way to feed it than to reinstate the draft and build more nukes?

The draft will insure that the poor, the working class, and the middle class are forced to sacrifice their children and other family members, while the
ruling class is deferred from fighting in the wars it has created. Remember - George W. Bush was placed on the top of the Texas Air National guard list - someone else died in his place.

Now for the Nukes - America is already armed with 10,000 nuclear bombs and has spent $5 trillion on nuclear bombs since the 1940's. See here. The fusion-conscious Bush Administration is purposing
to replace "last year's nukes" with a whole new arsenal. New nukes for old? How nice for the weapons industry. Currently our B52 bombers are being outfitted to deliver bunker buster nukes - to what end? Huge financial profits and a preemptive nuclear strike on Iran.

Donald Rumsfeld argued that bunker busters a
re mini nukes whose small size and precise underground delivery will cause very little collateral damage, if any. Please read the following...

"...bunker busters in Iran, or anywhere else for that matter, will vaporize hundreds of thousands of tons of earth, water and rock and send this radioactive soup downwind to kill and sicken whole populations. Those immediately downwind will die quickly, in hours or days. Those further downwind will take longer. The global incidences of cancers and disease will again rise markedly. The land downwind will remain contaminated and unusable for generations. If there were deep shelters, it has been postulated by the designers that the bunker busters would not penetrate deeply enough to affect them. I imagine that would initiate the attack theory of sending one nuke after another into the same hole. Picture the intensity of the radioactive disaster that would perpetrate on the area." Read entire article at Dissident here. For additional info check out the Union of Concerned Scientists - click on the Security tab at the top of the page.

A Rumsfeld Flip-Flop...
Reporter: "What are you trying to do with those bunker busters?"
Rumsfeld: "Kill people."
Reporter: "I meant what do you hope to find when you go to the place you dropped the bombs?"
Rumsfeld: "Dead people."

Yeah, Rummy, I see dead people, too. That's the problem

Here's my nightmare scenario... Cheney and the neoconservative cabal hype Iran's evil-doing to a crisis level and deploy the B52's to nuke 'em back to the stone age. The Iranians will so be thankful for the bunker buster bombing and the murder of their families, that they will swiftly return the gift to American ground forces in Iraq, and the carrier groups sitting in the Gulf. Massive American casualties will result but that is OK because the Pentagon has already written those soldiers and sailors off. They are sacrificial lambs, highly expendable, and will serve to fuel the propaganda storm that will blow across America. "Look what the inhuman Iranians have done to our troops? Our military has been depleted by heavy losses. More money! More nukes! Quick reinstate the draft! It's the only way to save our freedom!"

Let's hope the slumbering soccer moms of America wake up and take to the streets. This war is already fiv
e years old and were are about to expand it - your kids are going next - unless you stop it! Help us help you stop the perpetual Bush Wars.

The threat to American freedom is not in the Middle East. It is homegrown, occupies the White House, and is defiling the Constitution. IMPEACH

Like I said, I feel like a coal miner's canary - singing the ill-wind blues.

China and Russia have been performing War Games together and if we Nuke Iran or give the go ahead to Israel to do it they will back Iran.

Than we will indeed see mushroom clouds over New York and every other major city in America.

I hope your bomb shelter is as deep as the Dark Lords and Der Fuhrer's is.

They will destroy the World because they are pure evil and spawns of Satan. I pray the Lord calls them before him sooner rather than later.

God Bless.

EXCELLENT POST!!!!! Fuhrer and Darth Cheney are on a mission to kill the world and anyone who happens to disagree with them! How we have not been able to IMPEACH this Bastard once and for all is beyond me! To reinstate the draft would be horrendous! I for one WILL NOT allow ANY of my family members to be drafted should that occur, Fuhrer can just send the henchmen and I will glady let them know EXACTLY what time it is. He wants people to meet their maker sooo damn bad well let's start with letting THAT DICTATING BASTARD MEET HIS!!!!!!!! I ABSOLUTELY HATE THE BASTARD!!!!! Keep up the good work K.W.W.

I'm against bringing back the draft, but it would almost, almost be worth it just to watch all the chickenhawks squirm and twist and say "let's fight!" out of one side of their mouths, and out the other side they'd yell "uh, I can't, I'm a student, my wife needs me, OK OK I'm a coward!"

Dear KWW,

Yes, the media-political juggernaut against Iran is feverously taking place with visions of mushroom clouds lighting up our TV screens nightly. And, ironically, our Military Industrial Complex is trying to convince us that the bombs will be coming fromIRAN! What?! Are the American people stupid enough to go along with their lies? Are we really that insane?

I recently posted a article from Phil Rockshroh called a "Disneyland of Military Ignorance." The geist of this story is that we have to stop idealising the men and women in the military in this country and I couldn't agree more with him.

The only way we can stop the war is if we stop participating in it; the draft won't work if nobody shows up to enlist, and, we need to hold the military men in this country responisble for this insanity. No longer can we say "we support the troops but not the government," when the troops are helping the government kill innocent victims.

We are all accountable for our actions.


Thanks for your efforts to get people to wake up.

Most people on the planet have no bomb shelters in which to seek safety.

That doesn't really matter, because FALLOUT does not honor borders established by men. Contamination will fly in the clouds, float in the waters, permeate and poison the earth, and like a boomerang, return to the Americans who dropped the bombs.

Let's all get out there to educate our friends and neighbors to the danger of Bush Bombs. And let's STOP THIS WAR and the next ones that are incubating!

Funkytown Fighther...
Nancy Pelosi unilaterally took IMPEACHMENT off of the table. You must have been as deeply disappointed as I was. Damn.

About the draft - I lived through it when my friends were drafted and sent to 'Nam.

My eldest son, was in 14 years, has PTSD , and a host of physical problems.

I will not sacrifice my youngest son, nor anyone else's family members. No More.

However, I am VERY willing to sacrifice those who start a war, profit from said war, support the conflict for WHATEVER reason, vote for war, and/or vote to fund war. DRAFT THEIR ASSES - young, old, president, vice, senator, congressperson, no matter the skin color, male, or female pack your shit off you go to take part in your PERSONAL WAR.

'Tis done. Thanks for putting "The Dishpan Chronicles" up for nomination.

See above about "The Draft". I am So, So VERY opposed to reinstating "The Draft".

The gently suggested proposal seeded by General Lute, is only the resurrection of a well greased sled for the very people who create American Wars, to slide their genetic seedlings out of harms way, while sending thousands of others to slaughter, and be slaughtered.

I would very much like to watch all of our CHICKENHAWK COWARDS
squirm (boy, wouldn't that be a show!) but I feel with everything in me, that we must protect the lives of our youngest generations.

While visions of mushroom clouds dance in their heads...

I downloaded the article that you posted entitled, "Disneyland of Military Ignorance". What a title! Quite a good read, too! Thanks.

Laurence W. Britt lists "Supremacy of the Military" as one of the fourteen "Early Warning Signs of Fascism".

I agree that we all should be held accountable for our actions but sadly, these monsters who started and continue this war, are getting away with murder. I don't however, fault all of the troops involved in this, and other wars, because of my experiences within the US military. We need to help the soldiers who have awakened, as many do, in the middle of a horrific nightmare.

"What if they gave a war and nobody came?"

Yep, that's what we need to work toward - Wars without participants.

If this President bombs Iran, we will need a draft and the time to train the troops. This would be very stupid on Bush's part to do such a thing.
I feel as you do, I do not want my son fighting in any war this man dreams up for him and his rich friends.
I know that his daughters would be exempted from such a war because of him being the President. I guess he want mind another war, because it want involve his daughters.

Great post as always, my dear - and fabulous analogy. Coal miner’s canary indeed! And great look to the blog, BTW. Sorry I haven't commented on it before. Been too busy with Kelley's campaign to comment on any of my favorite blogs, period. Not enough hours in a day!

very powerful, KWW. At one naive point, i thought it WAS a good idea to install the draft - only to spill the outrage into the streets. now i see the fallacy to that argument.

Bush is totally disconnected from reality and untouched by the tragedy of war. He is not, and has never been compassionate. He lacks the ability to empathize. War makes him feel righteous and powerful. That's why he must be stopped.

Robert Rouse...

The Fat Lady Sings...
Good to hear from you. I'm glad you like the "new look". Yours was one of the blogs that inspired me to undergo a custom make-over.

I know well how hard it is to get around to one's favorite blogs - its hard to find the time to write the blog, let alone take care of everyday life and political activism. I've been trying to find some time to do art for over a week. Yep, not enough hours in a day,!

Until the people who start wars fight in them first - "Forget The Draft"! Let the president, the vice, Senators and Congressmen and all of the staff and commentators at FOX NEWS sacrifice their lives. They need ACCEPT this war as their PERSONALIZE SACRIFICE!

Great post KW... but you know where I stand... the best way to wake up those soccer moms is to draft their darlings, right now it's really not their concern who dies in the Middle East, I mean it's terrible and all, but gosh, I have to pick the kids up at 7! the call is out for a draft, and I'm afriad they will get it... I'm afraid because if "they" get it, you can be sure it will exclude those whose wealth or status can keep them safe... this is why I think, in my not so humble opinion, that we need to push that draft in the right direction before it is imposed on the middle and lower classes, push that draft right at the proverbial Bush twins...

"Send the Bush twins to Iraq,
See how fast our troops come back..."

Bring it on...

Gotta agree with mebrudder, scroff. I too support the draft, providing there are no exemptions except legitmate medical ones!

I, too, want to see the chickenhawks and war mongers squirm when their little darlings are pulled out of disco's and niteclubs and sent to defend the profits and tax cuts their beloved parents so dearly cherish.

I'll never support a draft. I think the men and women who vote for war should be the first to go no matter age or infirmity.

There's a real good bumper sticker available at evolvefish.com. It says
"Draft Rich White Kids" - now there's an idea!
