1. I failed to use the "scarcasm" icon in my recent post advocating
a Draft and I regret that. My point was that maybe if everyone was exposed to the possibility of going to war, we wouldn't have any. I didn't express this very well but other people in the thread did. The burden of carrying out this Country's bellicose policies falls on the poor. My recollection is that the tide of public opinion began to turn against the Vietnam war after a Draft was instituted.
