    My evidence is only anecdotal, but most people I talk with used to support these wars of choice in the Middle East and Afghanistan as a way of preventing terrorism.  In the last 12 years, the tide has turned against us sending our troops into these countries. The American public is sick of war when our own young people are being killed and maimed.  This is why I believe the draft would help turn the public against any future ill conceived wars.

    Also the growing American distaste for sacrificing any more of our own is why the drone program is being shoved down our throats as being a surgical way to combat terrorism. We here at dkos know that is totally false.  The Peace vigil that I belong to is trying to educate the public why the drone program is against our best interests too.
