The Military Draft: An Unwise Solution The United States of America’s military is currently involved in two major wars with U.S. opposition in Afghanistan and Iraq.All though both of these efforts can be said to be in the clean-up stages, many more soldiers will be needed to stabilize the regions, to provide police work, and to fight the insurgencies that have risen in opposition to the invasion of U.S. troops into foreign lands.
The current presidential administration states that to adequately deal with the problems of post-war Iraq and unstable Afghanistan the United States needs to increase the number of active-duty soldiers serving over-seas.Top officials in the administration have said that a reorganization of the military is already in progress, and it will create more combat regiments, but the quoted additional 25,000 new military participants needed per year can hardly be met through these minor reorganizations. In addition, recruiting numbers are at their lowest in over ten years (“All Things Considered”, NPR News Source.)Many feel that the reenactment of the military service draft is inevitable because it is the only way to come up with the astounding number of new troops needed to finish the jobs started in the Middle-East by George W.

Bush and his Republican administration.If increasing the size of the military is inevitable, then the draft is the wrong way to go.Aside from the moral objections that many Americans have to a draft, there are major logical fallacies in the reasoning that a draft would benefit.
