Well people are talking about bringing back the draft. As someone who is physically and legally immune from the draft Giblets must say it sounds like a great idea. First, we need more troops in Iraq if we are going to win, or at least prolong our nightmarish quagmire until we can lose "with honor." Second, not enough warm bodies are stupid enough to volunteer for the military what with the "Iraq slowly going to hell" thing. Third and most important: being forcibly shipped off to die in strange and hostile parts of the world will rebuild our long-lost national character.

Now some people whine about how the draft is wrong and how it is immoral to force citizens to kill and die in the military. These whining people as always do not take into account one crucial fact: FREEDOM ISN'T FREE. It has a price, and that price is arbitrary forced servitude to the state.

Remember that "freedom" is not just a word. It is a squishy, concept-lite word which invokes positive feelings. FREEDOM! Doesn't that feel good? Isn't that worth being locked up indefinitely as an enemy combatant without trial or shipped overseas to die for? It better. Because Giblets has no patience for enemies of freedom.
