Let's hope that Joe Biden has some sense and that all of this talk about bringing back the draft turns out to be nothing at all. Because bringing back the draft would tear our nation apart.
Most young Americans definitely do not want to go to war, and I believe that resistance to a draft would far exceed anything that we witnessed during the 1960s and 1970s.
But our politicians have been talking about implementing a draft anyway, because we could soon find ourselves fighting multiple wars simultaneously.
A few days ago, I was stunned when I learned that hundreds of noncommissioned officers have suddenly been "ordered via email to report to the recruiting school at Fort Knox, Kentucky"...
Without warning, hundreds of noncommissioned officers were ordered via email to report to the recruiting school at Fort Knox, Kentucky, in less than a week, with hundreds more set to start at the school in December - a sudden unexpected move by the Army as the service scrambles to boost its recruiting force by 800 by the end of the year.
Why is there such a sudden need for hundreds of additional recruiters?
Could this have anything to do with the fact that a major war has erupted in the Middle East?
Those being ordered to report to Fort Knox were given such short notice that they had "zero time to plan child care"...
"Given the six-day heads up, we have zero time to plan child care," one noncommissioned officer told Military.com on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. "We can barely find and afford child care during the week as it is, so now my wife may end up having to quit her job entirely because it is impossible to find on the weekend."
We are being told that this is simply an effort to maintain an appropriate number of recruiters.
But why is there such urgency?
Something is not adding up.
Meanwhile, in recent months the idea of bringing back the draft has been floated again and again in the mainstream media.
The most recent trial balloon was authored by Myra Adams...
Is the U.S. on the cusp of a three-front world war against Russia, Iran, and China? If such a seismic event were to occur, would our nation's 50-year-old all-volunteer force require a boost from - dare I even say it? - a reinstatement of the draft?
These articles are being put out there to see how the public will react.
Even if a major war had not erupted in the Middle East, major changes were likely coming anyway, because recruiting has been way down...
Even before the Hamas attack, every branch was falling short of its goals except for the smaller Marine Corps. According to the Department of Defense, for 2023, the Army is short 15,000 recruits, the Navy is down 10,000, and the Air Force 3,000.
In my new book entitled "Chaos", I have an entire chapter about the shocking decline of the U.S. military.
Joe Biden has turned our entire military into a giant social experiment, and as a result there are countless young conservatives that no longer have any interest in considering military service.
And of course there are many young people on the left that never had any interest in serving in the military under any circumstances.
In her article, Adams acknowledges that bringing back the draft would "spark a fierce domestic battle", but she suggests that would be a better alternative than losing a major war...
But everyone knows that reinstating the draft will spark a fierce domestic battle, detracting from the war effort. After 50 years, a 21st-century draft would be a national nightmare. But could reinstating a draft be worse than potentially losing a major war?
If we are not prepared to fight major war, perhaps we should stop endlessly provoking the Chinese and the Russians.
Unfortunately, it is already too late to avoid a major war in the Middle East.
On Saturday, the IDF and Hezbollah once again hit each other really hard...
Lebanon's Hezbollah said it carried out simultaneous attacks on Israeli positions at the Lebanese border on Saturday, as residents of south Lebanon reported some of the fiercest Israeli strikes yet during weeks of cross-border clashes.
The Israeli army said its warplanes had struck Hezbollah targets in response to an earlier attack from Lebanese territory, and was accompanying the air strikes with artillery and tank shelling.
It is important to remember that this war is only just beginning.
As this war becomes even more violent, protests all over the globe are going to get even more intense.
Over the weekend, crazed protesters in Washington D.C. were seen "desecrating beloved monuments and vandalizing statues"...
Tens of thousands of pro-Hamas Muslims marched in the streets of Washington, D.C. today - desecrating beloved monuments and vandalizing statues. Watch videos of the destruction below. A massive crowd of Muslims, many waving Palestinian flags, stormed the White House gates chanting, "****** *****." The White House gates were splattered with red paint. Not a single person was arrested.
Many of those protesters did things that should have gotten them arrested immediately.
Why didn't that happen?
Something has gone very, very wrong.
Perhaps the authorities were afraid of them. The crowd of protesters was absolutely massive, and many of them were chanting the slogan "from the river to the sea"...
Tens of thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters massed in Washington, DC, Saturday afternoon before descending upon the White House to chant, "****** *****" and "**** Joe Biden" as they accused the president of genocide and demanded a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.
"From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free," the crowd dotted with Palestinian flags and signs cried at the start of the event, which drew attendees from across the country.
The chant - which is growing increasingly popular in the wake of Hamas' deadly incursion into southern Israel last month and Israel's subsequent retaliatory attacks on Gaza - is widely considered antisemitic because it implies the elimination of the State of Israel and its people.
Eventually, this war will be over.
And when it is over, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is saying that Gaza must be part of the new Palestinian state that is created...
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said Gaza must be part of an independent, sovereign Palestinian state once the Israel-Hamas war is over, and Ankara will not support any plans "gradually erasing Palestinians" from history.
Erdogan made the remarks a day before U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken was due to arrive in Ankara for talks on Gaza.
And Barack Obama has come out of hiding to say the exact same thing...
Obama spoke at the Obama Foundation's Democracy Forum on Thursday, where he called for a two-state solution and an end to the "occupation," while not clarifying what occupation he meant.
"All of this is taking place against the backdrop of decades of failure to achieve a durable peace for both Israelis and Palestinians," the former president told the forum audience.
He continued, "One that is based on genuine security for Israel, a recognition of its right to exist, and a peace that is based on an end of the occupation and the creation of a viable state and self-determination for the Palestinian people."
This has been the plan all along.
They are absolutely determined to create a Palestinian state, and they are going to get it one way or another.
But before that happens, there will be a cataclysmic war in the Middle East, and the amount of blood that will be spilled will shock the entire planet.
We had a peace and prosperity president replaced with a destruction and war president by way of a stolen election. Until this outrage is ended, the insanity will only grow.
