  •  There will be no draft...unless (none)
    I predict they will bring back the draft only if there is another major terrorist attack in the US.

    At risk of sounding "stupid" and paranoid, they might just manufacture a terrorist attack in order to make a draft politically feasible.

    •  Can't... (none)
      Another terrorist attack would be a sign of failure and people would lose confidence.

      They're stuck.

      •  Actually (none)
        It was mentioned here some time ago that while they can't manufacture an attack that succeeds, they could manufacture an attack or series of attacks that just barely fail. If they were public enough, that could swing support to them in a variety of way, including the possible need for a draft.
