very unlikely that there will ever be a need for another draft, you can "thank" america's monstrously bloated military budget for that. also not saying this to be mean but the average adolescent from iowa is pretty likely to be overweight and generally unfit (iowa has the 4th highest obesity rate) + you are autistic and i think that's still a disqualification, at least now...
unless they lower the requirements

"religion of peace" is a catch phrase by your stooge bush to stop your s**t kind of shooting Indian corner shop owners thinking they're muslims
islam can be best described as religion of justice
with your s**t kind on our beautiful earth, peace was never an option

I think that the obesity part is irrelevant. Infact, I think most drill instructors have more fun with the fat recruits, because it means working them harder to get the weight down. I had asked if any problems caused an inability to safely handle a firearm as being the biggest disqualifier or others like impaired ability to drive safely, etc.

I'm sure there are many drones in Iraq but probably not many used to kill Iranian generals,I'm sure drones kill people in Iraq from time to time.Most are just small time enemy combatants that never make the news.


Lol. Did you miss my point? The US has ZERO right to be in Iraq.

Way too early to start shitting yourself about that.
I felt the same way about the Vietnam war conscription.
I know where you are coming from. :wink:

Most people, especially of draft age, are on the lighter side of obesity, though an attempt to draft someone with a 67 BMI could be relatively entertaining if they were being transported to the base on a crane or tractor trailer or something like that because they were too wide to fit in a regular car.

The US support Al Qaeda.


That is a very strange statement. Source???

According to Wikipedia:

Al-Qaeda (/ælˈkaɪdə, ˌælkɑːˈiːdə/; Arabic: القاعدة‎ al-Qāʿidah, IPA: [ælqɑːʕɪdɐ], translation: "The Base", "The Foundation" or "The Database", alternatively spelled al-Qaida and al-Qa'ida) is a militant Sunni Islamist multi-national organization founded in 1988 by Osama bin Laden, Abdullah Azzam, and several other Arab volunteers during the Soviet–Afghan War.

Al-Qaeda members believe in a conviction that a Christian–Jewish alliance is conspiring to destroy Islam. As Salafist jihadists, members of al-Qaeda believe that the killing of non-combatants is religiously sanctioned. This belief ignores the aspects of religious scripture which forbid the murder of non-combatants and internecine fighting. Al-Qaeda also opposes what it regards as man-made laws, and wants to replace them with a strict form of sharia law. Al-Qaeda's leaders regard liberal Muslims, Shias, Sufis and other sects as heretical and its members and sympathizers have attacked their mosques and gatherings.

Al-Qaeda has carried out a total of six major attacks, four of them in its jihad against America. In each case the leadership planned the attack years in advance, arranging for the shipment of weapons and explosives and using its businesses to provide operatives with safehouses and false identities. [One of the most critical was the 9/11 attack on New York and Washington D.C.]


The US intelligence agencies were helping Al Qaeda move around the country before 9/11. The US supported Al Qaeda to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan. The US supported Al Qaeda in Syria and Libya. Who do you think those 'moderate rebels' driving around the country in tanks with assault rifles screaming "Alahu akbar!" In Tripoli going on to chop off heads and sodomize Gadaffi with a knife? WHO do you think those 'moderate rebels' in Syria were running around chopping off the head's of priests and eating the hearts of soldiers they killed? Get a grip and wake the hell up.

Obama delivered something like 1.7 Billion dollars to Iran in the middle of the night. The nuclear agreement drawn up imperiled Israel. Obama hated Israel, as does Iran.

No Benghazi's on Republican watch!


It wasn't "given to Iran". It was IRAN's money. The US gives Israel $10 million a day out of YOUR money while Americans decompose on the streets. And what does Israel give you in return? NOTHING. Just more demands and Americans to go and kill brown people and die and go back home in wheelchairs or go home and kill themselves. F**k Israel.

And the solution is to leave an ally alone against Iran? I could see you doing that. You'd be fine if Iran blew Israel off the map.

How long do you think the people in our Embassy had? Iran doesn't exactly have a history of mercy.

Relax, nobody wants Canada. You're safe.


Alone? Iran is alone! Israel is allies with Saudi Arabia, the US, the UK, France. Israel has hundreds of nukes.

Iraqis were protesting at the Embassy because the US blew up their country AGAIN. Get the hell out of the Middle East. Have some damn shame.

Anyone interested in reality can read this. Get the Israel lobby and these twisted neocons out of America or you are DONE.

I think we found the solution:
A Big Mac a minute will keep you from the draft.
A Big Mac a minute will save your life.
Not so daft, eh? :mrgreen:

Problem with that theory is that it is basically the diet or eating habit of almost every draft age kid in America and they aren't overweight.

Not if they were sanctioned... A sanction was meant as a punishment and any 'deal' made with Iran that offered that sanctioned money back to them undermined the initial punishment. Every dime the government pays out is taxpayer money. With out us, they wouldn't be s**t.

Some Israelis (Jews) are brown/black people too, John. Just like some Muslims are white/black skinned... Some Catholics are brown/black, etc...

Israel has the most to lose if Iran has nuclear capabilities, a fat lot of good it will do Israel to have the US or the Saudis as allies if they are a heap of ash. You know this, you just hate Israel so much that you pretend you don't.
