    America Prepares for Global War and Restarts the Draft for 18-26 Year Olds

    Our government is planning a big draft, conscripting millions of young Americans for an even bigger war!

    I call to your attention a Democratic amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which was slipped into the almost trillion-dollar Pentagon war spending bill, by voice vote, in the House Armed Services committee.

    The Democratic Amendment to H.R. 8070, the National Defense Authorization (NDAA) reads:


    Section 531. Selective Service System: Automatic Registration. SEC. 3. (a)(1) “Except as otherwise provided in this title, every male citizen of the United States, and every other male person residing in the United States, between the ages of eighteen and twenty-six, shall be automatically registered under this Act by the Director of the Selective Service System”.


    This amendment is in the NDAA legislation and there is no pending amendment to strip it from the bill. So, when the NDAA passes, as early as this week, Congress will have taken steps to make automatic conscription the law of the land.

    Why an automatic draft? Members of Congress and the President have an obligation to explain to the American people to which foreign land will their sons, and perhaps their daughters, be sent to die?


    The U.S. has been in a continuous “State of Emergency” since September 11, 2001, which provides a president with over 100 powers he would not ordinarily have. Notwithstanding that the automatic draft provision will go into effect in a year, a presidential order invoking emergency powers and/or an Act of Congress, could readily move millions from their civilian lives to the front lines of a war.


    WHAT WE KNOW:

    We know that America is fomenting wars around the world

    We know that the military industrial complex controls our government

    We know that we are on the precipice of a global war, provoking aggression rather than resolution with Russia, China and in the Middle East.

    The only winners in these wars are the war profiteers.

    They’re now going to take our children to fight in unnecessary, destabilizing, dangerous, debt-creating wars.

    .
    .

    There is no other conceivable reason to require more than 16 million American males to be automatically registered for the draft, other than to prepare for a large-scale war.

    The Selective Service System is the vehicle by which individuals are inducted into the armed forces. This NDAA Automatic Registration amendment facilitates an efficient, large-scale draft.

    The new law will automatically register all males between the ages of 18 and 26. Selective Service will notify in writing every young American male that they have been registered and will prescribe regulations which can require the registrant to provide “date of birth, address, social security account number, phone number and email address….”

    I wonder how many are willing to sign up for Uncle Sam to fight the Russians and Chinese?

    And, or civil war.

    Good thing I'm past the draft age. I'd be scared $#@!less if I got forced to fight in a global conflict.

    Should go to the Supreme Court.
    Women are Men, Men are Women. Pronouns are mandated. Nobody can define a woman.

    Yet they are drafting males. Hmm.

    Discrimination!

    I bet no one is even going to know they're registered for this thing.



    Seriously, though, I'm trying to figure out what makes this different than what we already had? (not defending it, just saying it seems like regular ol' selective service stuff that was the same way when I was that age, just more electronic now)

    Okay I guess re-reading it I can see that it's not incumbent on the person being registered to present themselves.
