Gary Hart Stumps for Dems: Warns of Draft
Gary Hart has hit the campaign trail. He adds to speculation about a draft:
If the United States wants to keep a strong presence in Iraq, but few volunteer for military service, “What other course is left?” he said. “The only answer is conscription.”
He also blasted Bush's "imperialistic policy."
The war in Iraq was conceived a decade ago by high officials now in the Bush administration, including Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, to establish a democracy in Iraq and use it to moderate the region and eliminate threats to the world oil supply, Hart said. The attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, were “a smoke screen” to allow the plan to be put into action, Hart said.
