Bring back the draft

With all this controversy over “boots/no boots on the ground” in our never-ending and costly involvement in Arab countries’ conflicts, it’s only fair to our burned-out soldiers and their families who’ve gone there and sacrificed over and over again, to bring back the draft so we all have skin in this game.

Our self-serving, cowardly politicians must stop worrying about their re-election and do the right thing for once in their lives and restore the draft. Especially, those GOP hawks who never heard of a war they didn’t want to get into, but also the Democratic doves who want to save the world from tyranny. There’s no other option to this futility.
