abstract: Recent proposals/suggestions by the chief of the U.S. Selective
Service System (the agency that registers men of age for potential
compulsory military service) include:

- Young Americans regularly inform the government about whether they have
training in niche specialties needed in the armed services

- Increase the maximum draft age from 25 to 34

- Require women to register with Selective Service

punch line: "Some of the skill areas where the armed forces are facing
'critical shortages' include linguists and computer specialists, the agency
said."

Yahoo. I could go from unemployment to cannon fodder.

I guess our Canadian posters can be glad this is one offer that's only good
in the U.S.

Ah, such eloquence. Pity that you choose anonymity, so we can not see and
admire the source of such rapier wit.

Hey, I'm still 34! Maybe I can go to Iraq and scare the
terrorists with my A+ certificate. If that doesn't work, I
can always wave my AA degree at them.
