Maybe you and Kerry should read more reliable sources of information. Like the Urban Legends web page:

Draft Fear

Claim: The U.S. military will be reinstating the draft by Spring 2005.

Status: Probably not.

Example: [congress.org, 2004]

...both the Congressional bills were introduced back in January 2003 and have languished in committee ever since with seemingly little support, and the Selective Service maintains that the timing of ads to fill draft board positions was coincidental, part of a process of filling expired board positions that has been underway for several years:

And BTW, the bill in the House were introduced by:

January 7, 2003
Mr. RANGEL (for himself, Mr. MCDERMOTT, Mr. CONYERS, Mr. LEWIS of Georgia, Mr. STARK, and Mr. ABERCROMBIE)

And in the Senate by:
Mr. HOLLINGS introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Armed Services

Most if not all of whom are Democrats, loudly complaining that Bush will reinstitute the draft! Isn't that special?
