Revamping the entire Military system from the ground up starting with recruitment should be job one with the future Bush has created!

I have been waking up the last 3 mornings to a series WBZ has been holding on the fact that in Massachusetts the National Guard has been pulling a lot more than its fair share of tours and Duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. I believe they said that 70% of the guard has served while only a third of the regular Army. Knowing I have heard like concerns from many States I was wondering what the actual percentage was. Any way you look at it the entire military system is at breaking point and needs to be revamped from the ground up.
I refuse to believe that knowing the systemic problems on every level in the military There has not been a "military Czar" appointed with the expeditious duty of building a military system from the ground up capable of dealing with Bush's wars present and future, starting with recruitment. From what I can see the only thing that has worked right is the American service men and women.
Those of you that know me know I have 2 sons that I am aware of serving today. One just returned from Afghanistan as EOD and a brother flying support for Iraq until some time in September. My three oldest sons stopped talking to me about about their youngest brother joining the marines when I told them his life was on their heads. At least one son can't go because he has asthma unless those rules change too. he would have gone years ago if he could.
That brings me to our military system that is inadequate from the ground up to continue to conduct itself as a viable fighting force into the future under the load of current wars, soon to come wars, and future wars set in motion by war monger new world order Bush that will not be avoided because of his departure.
I understand that the selective service system has been set in motion and is prepared to act if called into action. However, I have heard of no serious effort to monitor those of age or to find out who we can rely on when the time does come and it is coming. I have seen no serious efforts to get prepared for the future mess Bush has created.
As many of you know, I expected Bush to attack Iran next, and we keep hearing Cheney and others telling him to do so. However as we watch events in Pakistan and concerns grow over their nukes getting into Islamists hands, growing insurrection in many areas, the real possibility of Musharaff being over thrown, threats of future U.S. attacks formed in Pakistan. and the threat by Bush that he will go into Pakistan if he has too, I am increasingly concerned that Bush will go after Pakistan and Iran at the same time with as Rummy the dummy said "the army he has" not the one he wants. Then as you know, there are the traditional threats of Russia and China, etc.
All this adds up to an emergency to me and I have heard nothing serious to address obvious issues that soon will not be future but "now" I and others may not like it but Senator Rangle was right when he said we need a draft. To me that should be both sexes, ages and responsibilities should be worked out right now, with a choice of civil or military service, length of service determined by type of service.
That is just the beginning! the military medical system must be rapidly brought up to snuff and after all the promises it has not proven adequate for current needs let alone future needs. Multiple "over deployments" must be addressed and yesterday. Our beleaguered military soon to be more so must be given more of a rest while being asked to do even more, this too must be given top priority.
Lastly our active, reserve, and guard units, must receive even more $Billions to rebuild used up equipment and for now not even thinking of future needs. Bush has put a serious stress on the future of our military and our America and there is no concerted effort to address it. Why? Because Bush has other plans!
We have been increasingly told that if disaster strikes in whatever form we are on our own as the Government cant be expected to be there. Knowing that and knowing that we are headed to what appears to be all out war, think of this fact:
* When all hell breaks loose the Government is well taken care of and will survive, the military, families included will be well protected so that in the end whoever survives will have all that is needed to live, fight another day, and start over again. What no one remembers is this planet, supposedly God’s that they seem to wantonly be destroying, is in its Nurturing stage and man’s weapons are too deadly for it to survive and be life sustaining as we know it! Give me your thoughts please.

Does bush honestly think he can bomb parts of Iran and that'll be that? Iran can send it's army across the border into Iraq and our soldiers will be sitting ducks.

Yeah, our military is worn out as is much of its equipment. I don't know the answer, but I do know lots of questions.

I fully expect it. He has 3 carrier Groups over there and additional fighters in eastern Europe. fuelinf tankers on Diego Garcia will be the go ahead.
He is chomping at the bit to use it all. just watch Pakistan at the same time. Then there is China and Russia amongst others. Bush is over his head and is drowning us all.

I have no doubt that Bush will attack Iran, and I have no doubt martial law is coming to the U.S.

If we ever get away from Bush, it will take a miracle and billions to rebuild the military that this "war president" has so craftily destroyed.

Sickening isn't it.

I can tell you the draft is extremely unpopular amoung the youth, with over 80% opposed.

Would you be willing to spread the word about www.draftresistance.org? It's a site dedicated to shattering the myths surrounding the selective slavery system and building mass civil disobedience to stop the draft before it starts.

Our banner on a website, printing and posting the anti-draft flyer or just telling friends would help.

Thanks!

PS. When it comes to conscription, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Thanks Larry
I will check Dad out. I wish I could converse with you and others in real time. It seems like by the time you guys get on or have the time, I have to shut down after being on for around 12 hours.
I am interested in NWO too as you know. Right now my thoughts are on something else I found very disturbing involving the FBI and the Federal Government.
Anyway the more I get around and the more you turn me on too the more a see that most focus on one area while I focus on the big picture which is not a pretty picture as we all know. When you put all that people focus on into one picture it is one hell of a total mess we have.
It reminds me that year end 2005 I did a story saying OMG WE ARE IN TROUBLE: Bush promises more of the same for 2006. It only gets progressively worse.

You know I agree with you 100%. Sadly I don't see in the near future getting out from underneath Bush and his present and future mess.
Besides what you mention and the wars many of our children are fighting and will fight in the future thanks to Bush, if they survive them they will be choked by the trillions in debt Bush craftily put on their future so his present economy can look good. I can't stand it!

Yes I wouild be willing to spread the word. I don't blame you for being against the draft. I didn't like it during Vietnam but I vollunteered anyway.
I don't like the idea of a draft but I will guarantee you that we will not have a choice. Bush has created such a horrific future that these wars will go on for years and we either fight or lay down and die.
This Is terrible and I think unprecedented in the anals of history.
