We will need men to carry out the occupation efforts and defend the new empire that will have been created.
I don't think the Bush doctrine implies that it is necessary to occupy all the "evil" nations or create some empire.
Welcome to FR, btw.

If take preemptive action against nations that threaten our interests and remove their government, then were stuck in occupation efforts all around the world. Iraq and Afghanistan are just the beggining, a volunteer army cannot support a massive occupation force, they may be able to win the battles in any country entirely due to our military superiority, but we need manpower that can only be supplied by MASSIVE recruiting efforts or a draft to keep the nations whose government we just overthrew stable.
