Do You Believe That Women Should Be Drafted Into The Military?

Are you ready for our daughters to go to war?  Democrats in Congress want to make it mandatory for young women to register with the Selective Service System when they turn 18 just like young men do.  Of course, if a major war erupts and our politicians reinstitute a military draft, the draftees would come from those who have registered with the Selective Service System.  So, if the Democrats get their way, we will be just one step away from young American women being forced to go to war.  But proponents of such a move argue that we need to do something because military recruitment has fallen to depressingly low levels, and they insist that there are many jobs that women could do away from the front lines during a major war.  So what do you think?  Do you believe that women should be drafted into the military?

A major battle over this is happening on Capitol Hill right now.

Democrats in the Senate have already added language to the annual defense spending bill that would “require women to register for the draft”

Senate Democrats have added language to the annual defense authorization bill to require women to register for the draft, prompting a backlash from Republicans and social conservatives and complicating the chances of moving the bill on the Senate floor before Election Day.

Conservatives led by Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) are certain to attempt to remove the provision requiring women to register for the draft, which could present a tough vote for Sens. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) and other Democrats in tight reelection races.

Needless to say, a lot of social conservatives in Congress are speaking out very strongly against this.

One of them is Senator Josh Hawley

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) called the provision requiring women to sign up for the draft “insane.”

He accused the Biden administration of trying to implement a woke agenda at the Pentagon.

“There shouldn’t be women in the draft. They shouldn’t be forced to serve if they don’t want to,” he said on Fox News. He criticized Democrats for wanting to experiment with the military, saying “normal people are like, ‘Leave our daughters alone.’”

I think that Hawley makes an excellent point.

But why should our sons be forced to serve in our “woke military” if they don’t want to do so?

Why should anyone be forced to serve in our “woke military” if they don’t wan’t to do so?

When I was growing up, I was proud to be the son of an officer in the U.S. Navy.

But today I would not recommend military service to anyone, because our military has become a woke nightmare.

In 2001, Pete Hegseth eagerly joined the U.S. Army, and he ended up fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

But now he is considered to be “an unwelcome extremist by the military he once served”

Pete Hegseth joined the Army in 2001 to combat extremism. He fought in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and was awarded two bronze stars. But, as the “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host writes in his new book “The War on Warriors: Behind the Betrayal of the Men and Women Who Keep Us Free” (June 4, Broadside Books)He’s now considered an unwelcome extremist by the military he once served. In the name of diversity and social justice, the woke elites currently running our armed forces have lowered standards and alienated the brave young patriots who once ably protected America and its allies. “They believe power is bad, merit is unfair, ideology is more important than industriousness, white people are yesterday, and safety! is better than risk-taking,” he writes. “However, our enemies still understand that a soldier needs to be powerful, skilled, and courageous.”

I am totally against forcing anyone to join the military against their will.

If people want to serve, let them serve.

If people don’t want to serve, leave them alone.

But of course Democrats are big on forcing people to do stuff.  Senator Jack Reed sees absolutely nothing wrong with forcing women to serve in the military, and if a major war erupts he believes that “we would need all able-bodied citizens 18 and above”

But Senate Armed Services Committee Chair Jack Reed (D-R.I.) defended the proposed policy change, arguing that women can hold many warfighting positions without serving as front-line infantry troops.

“Women are doing a remarkable job in our forces today, and if we were in a situation requiring a draft, I think we would need all able-bodied citizens 18 and above,” he said.

“If we go to a draft, that means we’re in a serious, serious situation,” he added.

So what happens if there is a big war and most of our young people try to avoid a military draft?

Will they start grabbing young people off the streets like they do in Ukraine?

You may have noticed that our politicians aren’t exactly speaking out against that practice.

We live at a time when war is in the air, and leaders all over the globe have come down with a really bad case of war fever.

The war in Ukraine is rapidly approaching a point of no return, and the situation in the Middle East could soon spiral completely out of control

The White House has been warning against escalation toward an all-out Israel and Hezbollah war, as the daily exchanges of rocket and drone barrages has ramped up for weeks.

However, on Thursday’s Biden’s special envoy for the region Amos Hochstein signaled to the Lebanese government that if diplomacy fails, the US is ready to stand behind Israel in a new anti-Hezbollah offensive.

The “blunt” warning was delivered as Hochstein is meeting with officials on both sides of the border, and as Israel’s top generals have lately approved war plans for an offensive into southern Lebanon. He was previously in Israel at the start of this week and is now in Beirut.

World War II resulted in approximately 75 million deaths.

How many deaths will World War III cause?

We are living in extremely dangerous times, and I am entirely convinced that global war is going to be one of the major themes of the next couple of years.
