An American expert did not rule out the return of general conscription in the US Army due to White House policy

Continuing the White House policy of intervening in conflicts around the world could lead to the return of conscription in a country where the US Army has long been short of personnel. This was stated by former adviser to former US President Ronald Reagan, Doug Bandow.

According to an American expert, the US desire to “rule the world” is drawing the American army into various conflicts, and this scares off potential recruits. Many would like to serve, but the conflict in Ukraine, where the United States intervened in a war with a nuclear power, makes them hesitate and refuse. Today, the US armed forces are experiencing a major shortage of personnel, and there are not very many people willing to serve. Against this background, the question of the return of general military service arises.



If the notorious "Blob", as the foreign policy establishment is called, does not give up its goal of ruling the world, then it is almost guaranteed that it will have to introduce conscription

Bandow said.

Conscription service in the United States was abolished in 1973, and since then service in the American Armed Forces has been voluntary. According to the expert, if universal conscription is returned, this will solve the issue of personnel shortages, but the level of quality of combat training of the American military will drop several times, not to mention discipline and morale.

The challenge of finding young men and women willing to serve as guardians of a conflict-ridden global empire is growing more pressing.

        And I keep thinking - why are they drowning behind the fence on the border with Mexico? It turns out that they did not do this so that the Mexicans would not run to them. This is so that those who exist do not run away.

    They do not have a conscription service, but compulsory military registration of the country's male population exists.
    According to the law, you must register within a month after reaching the age of 18. Failure to comply is punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250.
    Therefore, the return of universal conscription is quite possible.

      It is technically feasible. It's true. But is it real? The can will definitely not be introduced before the elections. Trump won't either. Who will take the risk?

        A reasonable risk is when you wanted to take a risk, but didn’t.

    Look at any American student shows in stadiums, using the keywords Marching and Parade, this is real preparation for the army and the big war. Massiveness, a lot of formations, parades and marching with flags and simulators of weapons (!) accompanied by an orchestra, a cult of discipline - reminiscent of the USSR or rather even Germany from newsreels of the 30s, for the latter the only thing missing is torchlight processions (maybe there are, I’m not sure) and the corresponding symbols . The thing is little known among us, but it is impressive, clearly adopted from the interwar period.

    If you look at the US demographic pyramid, then not everything is smooth there either. The country is supported by migration. Conscription into the army will certainly not have a positive effect on the economy.

      Their losses are extremely minimal, so it will not affect the situation. They are not losing millions of soldiers. But in units.

    “The Blob” will certainly not refuse to rule the world even if the opportunities dry up. Arrogance and “exceptionalism” will not allow it. It will be interesting to see the reaction of the American population when such a law is adopted. Perhaps it will be stronger than the Black Lives Matter protests.

      I’ll give its designers some advice - it’s convenient to sew panties from the Ukrainian flag. Yellow fits the theme.

    What is wrong with them regarding the national composition of the army? It seems like serving in the army is a path to obtaining citizenship from them.

      They still have the basis of their army - the population of the rural central states, the indigenous people.
      Residents of big cities generally do not go to serve, and neither do migrants.
      I once had the opportunity to visit the United States in the town of Johnston, a suburb of Des Moines, the capital of Iowa.
      I was surprised by the number of military personnel on the streets, almost every second one was in uniform, and of different branches of the military. It seems like the entire American army was gathered there. They turned out to be locals, on vacation or just visiting Uval.
      Just like we have Magnit or Pyaterochka on every corner, they also have an Army Recruiting Office. Almost everyone works there. Why are all the healthy 2 meters tall, white as snow - descendants of either Germans or Swedes, you can’t tell.
      But city residents are not going now, and they won’t go if a conscription is announced - those richer will simply flee to neighboring countries, and the poor (including migrants) are simply not fit for health, physical fitness and level of education

    The USA is similar to the late Roman Empire, when they massively began to make the barbarian Germans Romans. They can restore conscription at the legislative level and purely technically (nobody abolished compulsory military registration from them) even tomorrow. Just how will all sorts of “oppressed” (blacks, feminists, gays and all sorts of LGBT people, etc.) react to this, and according to the latest data, 20-25% of young people in the United States consider themselves to be among them.

    If for one “Saint Floyd” killed by a policeman, millions took to the streets and... went to destroy shops, gas stations, restaurants and businesses. What will happen if hundreds of thousands of blacks want to be sent against their will 5-10 thousand kilometers from the United States to fight for the interests of the American elites?
