Canada and Draft

I do not expect the U.S. Military to ever re-start the draft. There are a lot of reasons for this. The Military leaders say a draft gives them a lower caliber of solider because they have to take everyone given to them. The political leadership would have less flexibility to use military force with more an non-volunteer force.

Right now on college campuses around America there are kids saying "I'll go to Canada if the draft comes back." This is the same thing that was being said when I was in college. They might need to think of another plan. It seems that Canada is no longer friendly to U.S. Military deserters. I am not surprised by this. I did not think Canada would be so willing to thumb the U.S. in the eye now a days.
