We have a volunteer military, not a drafted military like WW2 through Vietnam. If they want good enlistment rates and, as important, good re-enlistment rates, then they need to keep the troops happy, especially with the low unemployment rate right now.

If we had implemented a draft back in 2001, we would have had a few million more men under arms, a country mobilized for WAR and this WOT would be history now, and placed in the WIN column.
