    All-male military draft "Unconstitutional"

    While I am not sure if it is, women should be restricted to certain jobs in the military. Thoughts?

    Get a load of the horse crap that this judge spewed.....
    “The average woman could conceivably be better suited physically for some of today’s combat positions than the average man, depending on which skills the position required. Combat roles no longer uniformly require sheer size or muscle,” Miller wrote, in the form of a declaratory judgment rather than an injunction.

    The judge is an idiot.

    What does the drafting of men only have to do with the constitution? Nothing.

    Now, if he is suggesting that today's boys are in such sad shape that today's girls are capable of performing as well as the boys, there might be some merit to that. The Army is having problems finding physically fit recruits.

    It's absolutely unconstitutional.
    The solution is to repeal the draft laws, not expand them to the point of making our fighting force wholly ineffective.

    Why is the draft unconstitutional? Don't get me wrong; I am no fan of a draft. I wouldn't want to willingly serve with those who don't want to serve.

    In times of war, a draft may be looked at as cruel, but if you want to live here and enjoy the freedoms... serving the country that gave you these rights shouldn't be so bad. And yes, that (in my opinion) should include women. They want equal treatment, no better way to prove/earn that is to serve the country that will give you such a luxury.

    My thoughts on this subject have been modified slightly since I've started reading that book, Long Shot (see earlier book review thread) where it said that Kurdish men and women serve proudly to defend their country against ISIS.
    I feel many of our youth could use some serious discipline and what better way to give it to them.

    But hey, what do I know...

    Certainly none in Infantry, Armor, or Field Artillery.

    I served with many a draftee. If you didn’t know their Army serial number started with a US instead of RA you would not notice the difference.

    I certainly believe that if males are required to register for the draft, so should females. You know, that whole “equal before the law” thing.

    The chances of this country ever resorting to a draft again are slim to none anyway.

    For the record, by January 1968 so many boys were dodging, evading, joining the Navy, joining the Air Force,or hiding behind student derferments that the Marines were drafting too.

    Putting one's "patriotic duty" aside, the draft is 100% tantamount to conscripted service. We don't call it that, but that's precisely what it is. Can you give me any example where one could claim to enjoy "the blessings of liberty" while being forced to participate in war or face a penalty?
    If you can point me to the enumerated powers of the constitution that granted Congress the ability to demand service from free citizens with the threat of force, I'll concede the point.

    Tying ones freedom or liberty to military service misses the mark on what it means to be free and enjoy liberty. Believing one "owes" a debt to the nation because one believes the nation "gave you these rights" also misses the point, as no such rights were given by ANY government.

    On to the point of equality, I do NOT believe women should be allowed to fill combat roles. Ask *this guy* why.
    Military organizations are not about equality. They are about winning wars, defending those that need defending, and killing those that need killing.

    they had problem in WW2 with too many females enlisting - didn't need all of them - they started rejecting them and sending them back to civilian work ....
