Bush's Selective Service to soon conduct NATIONWIDE DRAFT "EXERCISES"!
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Sat Apr-17-04 03:22 PM by Dems Will Win
According to this official SSS doc, the entire system is going to go through the biggest "Readiness Exercise" this summer since the DRAFT ended in the 70s!

In every DRAFT BOARD REGION, the following will occur this summer and fall:

1. A single, national test DRAFT LOTTERY will be held and numbers on balls actually taken out of the jar and assigned to the 365 birthdays of the year.

2. Phony Draft notices will be sent out to volunteers from all regions.

3. Those Volunteers from all regions will then report to their center and strip down to their underwear for the fabled medical exam.

4. Those passing the exam and receiving no deferments will be sent induction notices from all regions.

5. CO volunteers will plead their cases to the local and regional appeals boards and if they are granted status, assigned to work for non-military employers pre-identified in all regions (unless they are military COs).

6. Male and female doctors and nurses will also be called for induction to test the MEDICAL DRAFT (3.4 million eligible age 20-44). No Medical deferments, so no exam will be conducted. Appeals Boards will hear from Medical Draft volunteers to decide phony "essential community service" appeals.

Most ominously, the SSS is making ready the Alternative Service, which has lain dormant for decades, and is actually identifying the employers needed for those who win non-military CO status. The first induction of COs right now looks like July 6, 2005, once the GOP Congress approves on April 1, 2005.


BUSH '04 = DRAFT '05
