From the CT Post:
The head of Connecticut's Selective Service program, believes the nation needs a military draft, but he does not expect Congress will institute it anytime soon. "I think it is going to be almost unavoidable if we continue heading down the path we are going on," said retired Brig. Gen. Nathan Agostinelli. "A lot of those in Congress know it is needed, but they also know they wouldn't get elected if they said so."If a draft were started, Agostinelli suspects the Iraq war would quickly end. "Parents wouldn't stand for it. They wouldn't accept this standstill," he says.
