Inouye calling for military draft?

Do You Feel a Draft?: military.com

"In an exchange sure to send ripples of anxiety through the all-volunteer military, the Senate's senior defense spending member asked Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen if it is time to "consider reinstituting the draft."

"Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), chairman of the Senate Appropriations defense subcommittee, asked Gates and Mullen the question he said no one wants to ask: "Is the cost of maintaining an all-volunteer force becoming unsustainable and, secondly, do we need to consider reinstituting the draft."

"This marks the first time a senior member of Congress has seriously discussed reinstituting the draft in almost two years. Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, called for reinstituting the draft in November 2006."
Is it time?
Neither Gates or Mullen answered the question directly. This is how the dialectic for public consumption begins. Open ended discussion which slowly changes perception, but the end goal is always predetermined. In this case, proceeding with the global conquest e.g. Iran will mean more countries to occupy, which means more troops will be needed as occupiers, which means a draft is needed..it's that simple.
