Yes reinstating the draft would have good elements to it, such as promotion of diversity, brotherhood with your fellow man, etc. One of the really positive after effects of WWII. And yes it is also undeniably true that it would make wars much more difficult to wage (unless it is truly just like WWII, but there are few of those). I am uncomfortable about the socio-economic divide between our leaders and those who serve in today's armed forces, few in today's government served themselves and I fear the effect that has on their decision making. There was a day when almost everyone in government had served in the military, they knew what it was like. A draft would help all young people get out of their comfort zone and mix it up out in the world, a good thing. I am still a little uncomfortable about the idea that we are training our entire population to be soldiers, I don't know I just don't like the sound of that, but perhaps by preconceived notions here are getting in the way of what the real effect would be. In fact it would probably do good in that it gives a real picture of the military other than the movie/video game one.
