    If USA started a world war, then be invaded by the world, would you accept draft?

    If USA would one day start a world war (impossible I know, considering how peaceful it has been) and then one day the world would rise up against it, whooped all US military bases, and brought the fighting home, to US cities, how would you feel about being drafter BY THE GOVERNMENT? By militias?

    Living in the woods in America, I am not sure I have the freedom to say what I would do, especially after my dogs were shot a month ago, and I am not sure if I would refuse a local militia to fight against invaders either, because I would like to know who is taking over, and there would probably be no internet to research.

    If we were physically invaded, I would not need to be drafted. I'd be there volunteering. I am essentially a pacifist when it comes to foreign actions on our part, but when it comes to my homeland, I'm all for a good fight.

    Skipping the entire ridiculous implausibility of the OP...


    Honestly, so long as there was a decent rear area I could store the wife and kids in, I'd be kind of excited. I almost pity the landing force dumb enough to take on an American citizenry.

    I predict they take at least a Divisions' worth of losses in the lower half of Louisiana alone.

    There would be no one alive to be drafted. The food chain, having being annihilated, causes the unlucky few survivors to starve to death within weeks. Armageddon. Goodnight, Vienna.

    Dude, I get it - you're upset about your dogs getting shot by cops, and frankly, I think there ought to be some rational restriction of that tactic (I understand also why they utilize it). But the idea that you aren't going to defend your country from invasion in a fit of pique over it?

    I think you may be right. Having a good number of friends there, I can tell you they do know how to fight, and they are doggedly persistent and skilled at whatever they pursue.

    Not in the redneck areas of the country. We have some scrappy fighters amongst the ranks.

    It's not his country. According to a previous post, his country ceased to exist in 1913. Ask him about his dogs, however. He hardly ever mentions them.

    I don't doubt it, but since the continental US would be a sheet of glass, I don't think it matters.

    The idea of any nation out there being able to project the kind of force to effect even a minor invasion of an infinitesimal portion of the U.S. is kind of silly. But really - American Rednecks, working in concert with the U.S. military, on their Home Turf against EuroArmies, with no holds barred?
