IN THE VIETNAM WAR AND FUTURE WARS,
ALL ARE MISSING ONE IMPORTANT THING;
Yes, the horrors of Vietnam, as the poor and middle class fought in it and the Rich could get deferred.
As my best example Cadet Bone Spurs Trump, who was deferred and deferred and deferred as he was in college, sort of.
Yet 60,000 of the western allies were killed and at least1,000,000 Vietnamese were killed and for what?
Now we are allies and is it just to piss off the Chinese...?
So back to the current lack of CONSCRIPTION;
if every one on your block had a Son or a Daughter over there and over
time a few kids on each block were being Wounded Mentally/Physically or
were to come home in a Box.
WAR remember that waveing of the flag adventure?
Well it would stop just like after WW1 and WW2. As the folks who came
home from those mass slaughters. Well, they had their taste for WAR
blunted because everyone was in it.
Trust me folks it would STOP soon enough as a National tragedy of it all would have been felt by everyone!
For WAR it is not a video game or the perfect news sound bite.
WAR in reality is just a vast human consuming open air factory where
the hours are long, unions are not permitted, with safety conditions
which are routinely flouted and people’s lives wasted for at times
neither Good or Bad!
Case in point, "No more People Have Died", on
this planet then they would have died naturally, if they were not killed
in a War.
Remember once your in the military the only thing the military cannot do to you; is eat you, as that is against the Law!

P.S. my Favorite WW2 Pilot Guy Gibson died 74 years ago today.
