Stop-loss orders as a backdoor draft?

Sure sounds like it…

Christopher K Davis posted a very interesting discussion of this on rec.arts.sf.fandom.

At the last debate, I would have liked to hear a much stronger opposition to a possible draft from Kerry. Of course, Bush’s statement that (paraphrasing) “there will be no draft as long as I’m President” is worth no more than any of his other promises, given his record of lies.
