From the Cox News Service: “If American forces aren’t pulling out of Iraq in a year, a draft will be needed to meet manpower requirements, military analysts warned Wednesday. With recruitment lagging and no end in sight for U.S. forces in Iraq, the ‘breaking point’ for the nation’s all-volunteer military will be mid-2006, agreed Lawrence Korb, a draft opponent and assistant defense secretary in the Reagan administration, and Phillip Carter, a conscription advocate and former Army captain.”More
The warnings came during a forum titled “The Draft: Inevitable, Avoidable or Preferable?” You can read the transcript here. The Center for American Progress has also archived video recordings (in WMV format) of the event: Mark Shields | Phillip Carter| Larry Korb | Panel Discussion | Q&A.
