Thus far, only one member of Congress has supported the return of the draft. Neither Bush nor Cheney has expressed any support for such a move. Even Joe Lieberman, the biggest hawk on Iran has opposed it. If you figure an attack first and then notice to Congress (within 90 days), it will take maybe a year to get authorization to pass. Then even in an emergency, another 30 days to set up and at least 25 weeks to get the draftees trained and formed into units. Congress won't react to a sneak attack on Iran of 2007 by the US the way it did to a sneak attack on the US by Japan in 1941. Also, the Bush administration does not have the country on a war footing as Roosevelt did when the Japanese attacked. We don't have the equipment for another million or two of troops. We don't have enough bombs for a year and a half of bombing while we wait for the troops to come online. Bush borrows from China to pay for war. Will they continue to loan the money after we cut off their oil?
