    in any case, this is NOT a possiblility, and this has been confirmed many, many times.

    I have a question. In the article quoted by NRG, the PNAC states "it is our judgment that we should aim for an increase in the active duty Army and Marine Corps, together, of at least 25,000 troops each year over the next several years."

    "Next several years" sounds like about five years to me, so they are asking for additional 125'000 active duty members in Marine Corps and Army. That would be an increase of 20 % over five years (170'000 Marines and 480'000 Army presently).

    Now, when knowing that e.g. "Army Reserve is falling behind its recruiting goals for the year" (http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/01/06/reservists/), what options could there be, in your view, to increase the size of the army and Marine Corps by 20 % without a draft?

    Regardless of how realistic a draft is, isn't that what the PNAC asks for, if you consider the options realistically?

    This was my point to the whole argument of the draft. Maybe it is a little over the top to just come out and say the draft is coming. But, what I had said is the "PNAC is calling for the draft". I did not say it was coming indeed, just that the PNAC was calling for it.

    It just strikes me as odd that the PNAC's agenda, has become Bush's agenda. The parrallels have become too real and I believe more than coincidence.

    - nudist

    for some reason, I get the feeling that this is chickdance. nudist and chickdance - same person? I don't know. anyway, it looks like you are insistent on spreading this fear around too.

    well, go ahead if it makes you feel good. go ahead.." draft is coming, draft is coming"
    but when it never materializes, chick, I mean nudist, how do you prefer your crow, medium or medium rare?

    I seem to have missed the post where Chick-Dance was spreading fear of the draft. Can you elaborate a bit on your line of thought which led you to suspect Chick-Dance and nudist are the same person? To me, this seems to be a highly original idea.

    Doesn' the fact that Nudist/Chick-Dance manages to spoof his/her IP address and make it look different prove how cunning and well-equipped they are? Such a thing can only be achieved by a conspiracy!
