Imposing The Draft . . . At State (November 19, 2007)

Imposing the Front Door Draft will ignite the State U’s (Universities) from inaction into action.  Imposing the Draft at the State Department is igniting a backlash.  During the prior Iraq-like misadventure (Vietnam), a posting to Ho Chi Minh City (then Saigon) was a plum assignment for a young and ambitious FSO (Foreign Service Officer) (e.g. A. Lake or R. Holbrooke).  Now, the State Department may need to conscript FSOs to outfit the Baghdad Alamo Embassy.  Those who are in a position to know what is happening know what is happening.

Hell, no, we won’t go
