Sure, it will be unpopular in some political circles, but it will not only bring together Americans of diverse backgrounds and geography, but the families of the draftees will act as a check and balance to the excesses of Washington in general and the Pentagon in particular. I was drafted and served in Vietnam, and while I didn’t want to go, I felt better for the experience and enjoyed the camaraderie of my fellow G.I.s. (Of course, I had a noncombat assignment.)

It’s not like we don’t have a need for young people to serve here. We ask the same small group of Americans to deploy overseas in places like Iraq and Afghanistan over and over because we don’t have the number of recruits we need to spread the responsibility more broadly. I have warm feelings toward the IDF, but like I said, Americans need to serve their own courntry first.
