US Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Marine Commandant Gen. Robert Neller both went public today in supporting the idea of forcing all women in the United States to register for the military draft, backing the call for such a requirement by Sen. Claire McCaskill (D – MO).
Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus also commented on the matter, supporting “discussion” of the idea but not giving it the unqualified support of the other two. The push comes after the decision to integrate female soldiers into combat positions.
The Selective Service Act requires all US men to register for the draft at age 18, though none have actually been conscripted since 1972. Women are not required to register. A number of Congressmen have suggested forcing women into the program would mean more equality.
On the other hand, some in Congress, notably Rep. Mike Coffman (R – CO) have condemned the Selective Service system as a waste of money, and have suggested that the push for equality would be a good opportunity to scrap it outright.

Also members of congress’ children should be put into front line combat units, we would see more consider responses to foreign policy matters!
Which is precisely why that will never happen. The elites have always been able to keep themselves and their spawn out of harm’s way, and they always will. Chucky Rangel knows his occasional bill for universal conscription is a throwaway; if it ever passed, he would leave DC in a coffin. And as an elitist himself, no one in his family would ever see the inside of an Army barracks either.
What a crazy idea.
More slaves for the empire.
