Is U.S. Planning to Restore the Military Draft System?

Army_Recruit2    It will come as a shock to most Americans––especially those under 40 years of age––but the government strongly considers reinstating military draft service. And a possible plan is to include women, as well as men, over the age of 18, as eligible for involuntary inclusion into immediate military service.

Why on earth would politicians consider such an unpopular move?  Surely this legislation will cause an uproar in the country. But jointly both sides of the political aisle will enforce this action, because this country is preparing for WW3. Indeed, by the time this law is enacted, the country will probably be at war.

No less than long-time in office, N.Y. Congressman Charlie Rangel has introduced a bill to reinstall the military draft with urgency:  “For a decade I have been calling for the reinstatement of the draft because our military personnel and their families bear a tremendous cost each time we send them to fight.

“Since 2001, nearly 7,000 soldiers have paid for these wars with their lives. More than 52,000 have been wounded, many narrowly saved by the miracle of modern medicine. The 3.3 million military households have become a virtual military class who are unfairly shouldering the brunt of war.”

Rangel’s bill also calls for enactment of a War Tax that will further involve all Americans in the costs of war:  “In addition to the significant number of precious lives lost in Iraq and Afghanistan, we have accumulated too much debt to finance these wars. The United States has borrowed almost $2 trillion to fund our military engagements on foreign soil.

“It is estimated that the total cost would be close to $6 trillion; we continue to pay a heavy toll for these conflicts. Each dollar spent on war is a dollar not spent on education, energy, housing, or healthcare.” As for compelling women to serve in the military, Rangel tells USA Today:

“Reinstating the draft and requiring women to register for the Selective Service would compel the American public to have a stake in the wars we fight as a nation. We must question why and how we go to war, and who decides to send our men and women into harm’s way.”

While not directly agreeing with Rangel, outgoing Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, tells TV internet commenter Charlie Rose:  “The world is dangerous. It is damn dangerous. We live in this imperfect, dynamic, changing, threatening, dangerous, interconnected world that we have never seen before,” implying the U.S. is not ready for this more dangerous world.

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno agrees. He tells the Wall Street Journal that world poses: “Security threats to obama-dhs-homeland-security-preparing-for-war-private-army-march-26-2013America as the Islamic State (ISIS) is rapidly growing in size while Moscow is acting like it wants to reignite the Cold War. . . . The world is changing in front of us. We have seen Russian aggression in Europe, we have seen ISIS, we have seen increased stability in other places . . .”

Those two men complain about forced cuts from the Sequester. The military claims not to want reinstatement of the draft system, but when WW3-inducing bombs drop on U.S. soil, they and the American people will quickly change their minds. Forced war does such, and forced war is what Russia and ISIS want.

However––seeking those who will fight to sustain either good or evil––the heavens have draft systems in place as well. In God’s Word, the social construction of reality says His side wins the final war: “These shall make war with The Lamb, and The Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful (Revelation 17:14).”
