I’m not sure how my comments (“I don’t mean to be overly alarmist, as the plan is only that-initial planning-just in case Congress would ever authorize a second draft.”) were interpreted as “sky-is-falling,” or fearmongering for Kerry (did I ever mention Kerry or Bush?) , but apparently what I thought was cautionary concern turned into “Graham freaks out.”
In fact, I know perfectly well what military doctors do, as my father was a physician in the Air Force, and one of my other physician heroes was a medic in World War II. But I’m sorry, I don’t see this war as the same as World War II. There wouldn’t have been soldiers and Iraqis wounded (as well as tens of thousands killed, many collateral damage) if we hadn’t have invaded Iraq.
I’m fully aware that the draft legislation failed with almost full support. But it’s more than just rumors on the internets.
