The foundation is being laid for invading Iran as we speak. Various news outlets are reporting that various explosives found in Iraq after the second Gulf War were ‘clearly from Iran’.
U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Tuesday that weapons recently confiscated in Iraq were “clearly, unambiguously from Iran” and admonished Tehran for allowing the explosives to cross the border.
Combine this with Iran’s pursuit of nuclear technologies and you’re looking at what the neocons will be using as the foundation for invading Iran. It’s pretty clear that we cannot fight wars on three fronts (Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan), which can mean only one thing: bringing back the draft. I’ll be watching this with great interest until March 15th, 2006, which is when I turn 26 and will no longer be eligible for the draft.
Of course you are assuming that G.W. doesn’t decide to alter the draft and make you eligable again. Considering I will be 27 tomorrow, I can honestly tell you that thought bothers me, as I vaguely remember hearing something about “recruiting” until 40 a few weeks back. Of course at the time I really didn’t pay much attention to it, but now with the foundations for war forming in Iran…well I guess we will just have to wait and see.
