The draft is now cleverly called "Selective Service" and is the stupidest thing ever.
I hate that all MALES have to or we face JAIL TIME and can't get federal loans/grants for stuff, but FEMALES don't. If chicks want to be able to join the military, then they should have to register for Selective Service too.

If it hits the point were they need to call up the draft, well, Canada please forget all the nasty stuff I said about you cuz I'm wussing out and coming to visit for a bit http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif
unless we're fighting china...damn chinese...then i'd join up on my own and kill thousands of them whilst screaming "WHERE'S YOUR MAO NOW SUCKA!" damn commies...but don't get me wrong, i love China #2 or as we call it "Taiwan." But i dislike RED CHINA with a passion.

If you're attending a university, you get a higher draft number which makes it less likely they'll select yours (meaning you're like unless we're REALLY LOSING, you're not going).
If you flee the country, they can't mail your draft card...that's was the most common way of avoiding the draft.

China's 8-10 million man army doesn't scare me one bit. They don't have the means to deploy such a vast force. And even IF they somehow managed to scrap together enough ships to turn into troop transports (just think about how many ships that would be...), the Pacific is a BIIIIIIG thing to sail across. We'd be taking pot-shots at them the whole time. And an amphibious surface formation is the absolute most vulnerable naval formation. We'd definite nuke that fleet and we could whittle 10 million down to a few hundred thousand pretty quick.
And if we didn't want to nuke them and match them man for man (which is pretty useless nowadays. A cruise missile can kill a chinese battalion in their barracks just as dead as an american battalion attacking) we would call up our good friends Taiwan and South Korea for the assist as they are right in China's shadow. Taiwan I believe has an army of two million and i know that South Korea has a standing army of 8.5 million (SK's army IS larger than china's. PRC has a standing army of 8 mil that is able to be enlarged to 10. SK is supposedly able to get troops strength up to 11 mil, as they known they need to outfight both NK and PRC if there was a second Korean war). The US, SK, and ROC would be well over PRC's 10 million, plus we'd have much more and shinier stuff than infantry. PRC might have a few thousand tanks, but we've got a few hundred BETTER tanks, a few thousands Anti-armor missile, and a few hundred attack helicopters...
maybe later today i'll polish off my scenario for WWIII and post it.................

Here it is....
<font size="5">WORLD WAR III</font>

NOTE: this assumes three things:
1) Iranian, Chinese, and North Korea missile technology remains as it stands today
2) The USN caved and withdrew from Okinawa
3) Pakistan's air force remains in it's current state

DATE: Sometime between late 2001 and 2006

WWIII will be triggered from a single hotspot and spread to a war of unparalleled destruction on many continents. Here's the trigger...
India and Pakistan finally have had enough and decide it's time to have it out. India launches six nuclear missiles at three targets in Pakistan. Pakistan fires six missiles to "reply in kind" with. Now, since this has been brewing for a while, the US had deployed a CVBG to the area a ways back. As soon as the missile launches are detected, one of the Aegis equipped ships in the fleet launches a volley of 20 SM-2ER SAMs at the IRBMs. Aided by the ship's Theater Ballistic Missile Defense system, all 12 missiles are destroyed in flgight. The US condemns the action and says that any further nuclear missile launch will be dealt with the same way and both sides' nuclear missile bases will be destroyed. India then launches an attack on Pakistan with their nice sized fleet of Tu-95 bombers loaded with Russian build ALCMs. This puts the US in an odd position: fire on the Indian bombers (which would kill Indians) or stand back and let the Indians bomb Pakistan (after all, the Pakistanis DID attack India..). As you can see, there is no way out of this one; either way you're going to war with someone. The US shoots down the bombers and destroys both sides missile fields. This puts the US and some of her allies in a shooting war with Pakistan and India. China and North Korea both see this as a great opportunity. With the US not stationed in Okinawa and the vast majority of US equipment tied up trying to fight a war in the Indo-pakistani theater, China makes a grab for Taiwan and North Korea goes after South Korea. The few thousand US troops in SK carry out their only orders on how to deal with a NK invasion: the 40 or so nuclear artillery shells are to be fired at the NK formations. The US deals this blow to the Communist forces and the US troops are quickly over-run (this is the ACTUAL plan for a NK invasion. it's the only place that the orders have only a nuclear version. there is no conventional orders and the troops are ordered to not retreat until they are relieved by SK soldiers. i did not make that up). NK, now pissed that they just got a few hundred thousand troops vaporized, gets China to launch a nuclear strike on South Korea. Seoul is now gone, as are a few MILLION of the SK defenders. Taiwan falls quickly without US defenders.

This is where my current scenario ends. It gets too hazy to really continue with any certainty. It starts to depend on how the fighting is going in India/Pakistan and what NATO is doing. What are the Russians doing? What other hot-spots would flare up now that the only big kid on the block is tied up? Would Israel erupt into war again? Would Turkey and Greece start fighting over Cyprus? Would the US launch a nuclear strike on China? Would the Chinese believe the US was planning to destroy thier 12 ICBMs and "use it or lose it?" I think one of the BIGGEST of my things I cannot predict is what the Russians would do. While they seem to have entered into an unholy alliance with China right now for the sake of having someone to sell things to, the Russians have long hated China. Would they take their chance and strike at China? Or would they side with China? Would China become ambition enough to invade Siberia again?
Things are even MORE bizarre when you think back to that original exchange. What if India and/or Pakistan was nuked? Fallout would directly effect China. Would China see reprisal in some way?

As you can see, I've thought this one out http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

This is something I've never understood. I don't like the idea of communism that much, but almost every person I've ever met from the US seems to hate it with a vengeance. Hatred of China seems particularly high. I must admit, I am appalled at their governmental system and some of the things it does, but again, almost every US person I've ever met seems to hate China as a whole, as in every Chinese person is to be hated. On a side note, China isn't really communist, even though they call themselves that, they're more like a total dictatorship. True communism is nigh on impossible to obtain.

My Startegy for dealing with China / any other Agressor with Limited Nuclear Arms.
At first sign of Agression Launch two Squadrons of B2's from diferent Vector so that even if ones course is projected the Other can still make it.

These planes will be loaded with Precision Guided Conventional Munitions and will be precided by air strikes by Tomahawks armed with Warheads capable of penetrating through hardened Concrete used in missle silos, with The Agressors ICBM Capabilities greatly diminished a Squadron of F-22's will fly in and clear a Coriodor of anti-air weapons to allow our bombers safe passage, then the bombers will be able to penetrate deep into the country with a fighter escort to deal with the migs, these bombers can stike directly at the Capital helping to disolution the Civilian Populace with the War.
A follow up attack with F-117 Stealth Fighters will help further demolish there air defenses and demoralize their troops.

I know why, it's because americans still have that Joseph McCarthy's "Witch Hunt" (anti-communist) propaganda carved in their heads, they are under McCarthyism influence without knowing it (since 1950). I once was like that because sometimes Canada gets under the American influence but I understood everything, saw the light, and I am now master of my thoughts http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/cool.gif
people are accused by the terrified mob and unjustly persecuted. I think the point that is being made is that anytime that someone allows his fears to go beyond his reasons, great crimes against the innocent are made, for instance: Charlie Chaplin was exiled, rejected, banned from the US because of that "Witch Hunt" he was suspected being a communist and they took advantage of him going away on a trip so they could ban him.

Wally the space dolphin says that your thread topic has been changed by subtle manipulation via brain-wave radio of all forum members participating in the conversation, thus reflecting the existance of a hidden cartel of highly powerful and well-coordinated world domination masterminds who have for some unknown reason chosen to confound you with fanciful stories about a science fiction program that doesn't really exist and observe with great amusement the surreal confusion it introduces into your daily life.

If you want, I could twist this around into a discussion of everyone's favorite non-topic: my personal life (which is pretty crudy right now. HOORAY)

Andromeda is a group of stars, galaxies and other phenomena that have absolutely nothing in common except they happen to lie along the same (wide) vector as viewed from this silly little planet!

Zoom you have been dupped by a government unwilling to accept change, the so called "Andromeda TV show" is actually a covert communique by the newly reformed Galactic CommonWealth urging us to overthrow our respective goverments and join them. I can't believe you actually believe all the Goverment propaganda, you should be ashamed http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Heaven burns, the stars are falling
As the enemy draws nigh.
Sound the call, fleet and lancers,
"Commonwealth" our battle cry.
Face the foe, never waver,
Summon fire from the sky.
From a million sovereign planets
Scattered through the endless night.
Bound by blood and High Guard honor,
Hold the line until the light.
Hold the line against the night.
