50. What's suspicicious is this!
They have let this program sit dormant--even after 9-11. Now 2 years after, they have very quietly spent $28 million to basically activate the system. That's because of a whole PNAC plan--for this was thought out in 2001. They need this draft so bad, they are willing to activate it by March 31, 2005 and are taking the risk to actually hold Lottery Exercises and total Area exercises of the medical exams during the election year of 2004--a huge political risk!

That's what convinces me they are serious about returning to conscription.
