Should convicted prisoners be offered a deal to serve in the military as a combat infantry soldier?


TOPIC: The US Army is strained thin and stressed out. Deals have been offered to Air Force and Naval personnel to switch service to the Army to serve as grunts. Men and women who thought they had completed their military service are being recalled to Active Duty. Active Duty personnel scheduled for normal discharge after completion of their enlistment cycles are being told they must remain on Active Duty. The National Guard is bearing an unprecedented mortal weight in Iraq and Afghanistan. The usual desired cannon fodder for our wars has always been minorities and poor whites, but enlistments from both categories have dropped significantly due to moral opposition to the war in Iraq and the feeling among our youth that President Bush, himself a draft dodger who requested not to serve in Vietnam, is unworthy of their respect. Most Americans believe that our Nation is only one major terrorist attack from a resumption of the Draft.
