    I agree on the Iraq invasion. I don't think it would have happened if we still had the draft. As regards Osama bin Bankrupt us in Afghanistan, I think it would have been done with a more selective scenario, but We would have still pursued OBL and with an objective Intel instead of editorial politically motivated intel, we would also have attacked Pakistan.

    Exactly, and our objective would not have been launching an ill advised and expensive nation building expedition, but simply killing or capturing Bin Laden and his cohorts and bringing them to justice.

    The only way I would allow myself to be conscripted by the military is if US territory was invaded. Other than that, count me out.
