Be careful what you wish for. I’m sure someone has told you that at least once in your life. I’m thinkin’ no one ever said it to Kim Jong Il.
Silly, silly man. He is no longer “running with scissors” as I stated in an earlier post…he’s running with the whole damned set of Ginsu Knives!!!
There are two problems the U.S. will now face (oh, I know, aside from the trillion or so other ones on our plate?). Can Obama handle the very difficult diplomatic times we will surely be facing…and do we as a nation have the testicular fortitude to reinstate the draft? Many commentators on the cable news channels seem to think the question is whether or not the United States military (in its current form) can handle 3 wars at once. No, not with the enlistment we have at present. Handling the wars themselves is not the most difficult part of this. Consider how many “mini-wars” we fought in WWI and WWII. We are not pussies, that’s not the problem.
During WWII we had the draft, same for Korea and Viet Nam. Please don’t write me “hate comments”. I don’t advocate it. I don’t like it. And I have many family members and children of friends who I want to see home, safe and going on with their lives…not on the front lines in some hell hole.
So, back to the 2 original questions – Can Obama handle the very difficult diplomatic times we will surely be facing…and do we as a nation have the balls to reinstate the draft? My answers…no and no.
