“People can quickly point out that they didn’t force them to volunteer for the military and fight in a war. … thanking their lucky stars that the volunteer troops are bearing that burden as opposed to having a draft take place in which they could be in the lottery.” — no, no, no. Having a draft would stop us from having a 16+ year war — the only reason why we’re not still fighting in Vietnam is because it became a politically unpopular war. We need the same in A/I.
“ we all sent the soldier overseas” — again no. @see Spooner
