If everybody had to serve then yes but I saw how the system was gamed during Vietnam. Most people with money found a way to avoid the draft. Cheney got 5 exemptions but had no problem sending Troops to Iraq and want to send them now. The other problem was you served for 2 years which meant just when you were good at what you were trained for you were out. It is a big waste of money. The worse thing was the way the soldiers were treated when they came back from doing what they had no choice.
