Is the Next Step a Draft?

Rhonda Schwartz | ABC News | August 22 2006

An Iraq War veterans group says the call-up of thousands of Marines from the Individual Ready Reserve, announced by the Pentagon today, is “one of the last steps before resorting to a draft.”

“This move should serve as a wake-up call to America,” said Jon Soltz, an Army captain who served in Iraq and heads the group VoteVets.org, which raises funds for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans running for Congress.  “Today’s announcement that thousands of Marines in the Individual Ready Reserve will be called back to go to Iraq is proof that our military is overextended, and there is no plan for victory in Iraq.”
