(July 7, 2012) Retired General Stanley McChrystal suggested today that US needs to reinstitute the DRAFT because his war-machine is chewing up its cannon fodder faster than expected—so he wants to spread the pain around among the mindless slaves, and their families, who still think they are 'free' in Amerika.

"Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former top commander of international forces in Afghanistan, said this week that the United States should bring back the draft if it ever goes to war again.
"I think we ought to have a draft. I think if a nation goes to war, it shouldn’t be solely be represented by a professional force, because it gets to be unrepresentative of the population," McChrystal said at a late-night event June 29 at the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival. "I think if a nation goes to war, every town, every city needs to be at risk. You make that decision and everybody has skin in the game."
He argued that the burdens of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan haven't been properly shared across the U.
