I've been working for a week on a piece on the Phil Carter and Paul Glastris cover story in the Washington Monthly which argues "The Case for the Draft". At one point it split into three, then went back to the drawing board, or drafting table; it's done about everything now except become a one-liner or a caption contest.
In the interest of getting something done, part one is now as terse as you can ever hope I'll be: What is the argument for not having a draft? We're at war, aren't we? The greatest threat to our freedom in our history, taking the fight to the terrorists, it's freedom vs. fear? Any of this ring a bell?
