Vijay Iyer & Mike Ladd did a CD that dealt with the subject of veterans and how they dealt with the aftermath of combat (specifically in Iraq and Afghanistan). Real veterans were involved in this, one of them a female "drone pilot". The job gave her nightmares. It's a great CD, regardless of how you feel about war. Some pretty intense stuff on there.

This is about the draft, if you are drafted you don't have a choice to be ready for it.

OK, but that's not really the point I was trying to make.

You IN NO WAY supported your claim that women were more valuable than men, Blowjob.

Non combatants are still targets and we are talking about drafting women to fight. This shouldn't be a tough concept for you to understand. Get some help.

Regarding my opinion about women. It was just that.....an opinion. I could make the argument, but I don't think it is necessary. You can't follow an argument anyways so what would the point be?

I know what your point was. and I don't doubt it. Just trying to figure out why you made it.

They don't drive you from the processing station to the battlefield.

Never mind. Don't want to start a fight. I'm going back to the "Tits" thread.

Of course not but if your selected and fit the health bill, you are going to be forced to do something.

My second job in the USN didn't require any serious fitness level, except for being able to go without sleep.

My first one involved staying alive while people were trying to kill me. But I wasn't exceptionally fit when I started that one.

That's fantastic, I hope it passes.

I don't support a draft. I think that service in the armed services should be voluntary. But if we need to draft people then we should draft people. I don't see any reason why females should not be required to register.

Uh, you can't even make an argument. Also nobody cares who's dad you think your dad can beat up, or about the Canadian super model girlfriend who gave you a hand job over summer vacation that nobody has ever met.
