    No one wants a draft, least of all the people who run the military. They have a hard enough time finding suitable candidates among those who volunteer.

    Besides, if suddenly a large contingent of military personnel were to quit because of their aversions to adultery and body art (honestly, some of these statements are just silly) they could just be "stop lossed," couldn't they?

    Seriously, no one does a better job of making young men and women forget their differences and depend on each other than the military. No one will care about the sexual preferences of the guy in the next bunk so long as they can count on him shooting the guy shooting at them.

    Navy....you are flopping all over the place. Sometimes I feel really bad.
    Shooting down your arguments is like shooting fish in a barrel.
    But you just make it so easy.

    I doubt many people will leave the service over the repeal of don't ask don't tell. It didn't happen in the UK when they repealed the ban in the 1990s and unlike then the economy wasn't in a sorry state. I doubt most reasonable people will look at their career in the military and decide its better to go into a workforce already suffering 10% unemployment.
