Associates close to Netanyahu and Ya'alon called draft review of Operation Protective Edge 'an unserious report that reeks of politicking.'12:47 06.05.16 | 0 comments
US Rep. Rangel and many other Democrats have urged resumption of the draft in the US (it's been an all-volunteer army for a couple of decades). His argument is that when only the poor and those without protektsia serve, the gov't is freer to indulge in adventures like Iraq. Though not everyone may be fit to be a commando, it's improbable that there's not a niche--cook, quartermaster, journalist--that would fit the differently-abled.
