80. I'm all for a draft. It is perhaps the major factor that ended the war in Vietnam.
Right now, the vast majority of the American public couldn't find Iran on a map. But they'll find it pretty damn quickly if we reinstate the draft.

And all the pro-war fanatics might just begin to object if it were their sons or daughters called off to war.

College campuses would become hotbeds of outrage and civil disobedience as happened in Vietnam when the draft still existed. (Odd, how students don't demonstrate until it affects them personally.)

Reinstate the draft and I can guarantee that the Bush Administration, and many of their enablers in the congress, the MSM, and corporate America will be sitting right next to Bush and Cheney in that court of justice that will eventually come to be.
