Yahoo News - WASHINGTON - Frequent tours for U.S. forces in Iraq and have stressed the all-volunteer force and made it worth considering a return to a military draft, 's new war adviser said Friday.Cue theme from "Dragnet".
"I think it makes sense to certainly consider it," Army Lt. Gen."And I can tell you, this has always been an option on the table. said in an interview with National Public Radio's " ."
When informed of this my Young Republican friend, Bradley, was incensed.
"What?! They want us to fight for ourselves? Well, I'll just have to pay someone to serve my time like they did back in the Civil War," said Bradley, 19-year-old member of the American Ruling Class. "Maybe one of those, what do you call 'em? Mexicans?
"Come to think of it, why don't we just draft ALL the illegal immigrants? As their reward for this service to Young Republicans...er, I mean, 'Our Country'...they should be given instant citizenship in the Republic of Iraq! Then, when their tours are over, and if they are still alive, they can marry some nice Muslim girl and settle down in that brutal heat with no running water and no electricity. They're used to that, you know, from living in Mexico.
"It's like Barbara Bush said about those refugess from Hurricane Katrina in the Astrodome: 'They've never had it so good. This is like Summer Camp for them!' And that's just how it'll be in Baghdad for the Mexicans. And not only that, but...POOF!...there's goes our immigration problem. And it'll bring the Catholics and the Muslims closer together too. We need more mixed-faith marriages anyway. Gawd, I'm brilliant!
