Who’s Signing Up for the Next War

I just read today that the House and Senate have bills to mandate women register for the military draft.  Ah, perfect.  Now we’re a hundred percent clear that this is a suicide pact we live under.  But what it got me thinking is who will be volunteering for the next war.

Let’s say that the Taliban hands over some of the military aircraft we gave them, to ISIS-K and they manage to fly it in over the southern border and just for the sake of argument, they fly it into the Freedom Tower in Manhattan.  Now granted, it may take a few weeks before anyone in New York gets around to responding to the huge pile of smoldering rubble.  After all the cops really aren’t welcome in the City anymore.  Back in 2001 New York’s iron workers were the ones who showed up on their own to start cutting up the steel to get at the remains of the victims.  Eventually the government starting paying them for their work but they showed up to try and save lives.  I wonder if there’s anyone who would show up this time.  I doubt it.  But eventually even dysfunctional New York will acknowledge that they’ve been attacked.  Then what?

If the Taliban give a big old belly laugh and say, “What goes around comes around.”  What exactly will Washington do?  If Dementia Joe goes on tv and mumbles about honor and duty and rallying around the flag who is going to sign up to invade Afghanistan?

I’m guessing there will be a big LGBTQ contingent, maybe fifteen or twenty lesbians and a few eunuch-transgendered guys signing up.  But that’s probably it.  That means if they really want to fight a big war they’ll need to institute the draft.  Now even if they haven’t added women to the draft, I’m guessing that the Democrat voters aren’t going to be thrilled about going to war.  I can’t see Brooklyn hipsters taking up the sword.  Nor do I think that the managerial state is willing to let their kids go toe to toe with Ivan (or even Muhammad).  I don’t think Congress is going to authorize the draft.  Is that the end of the forever wars?  I think so.

We no longer live in a country where patriotism has the same meaning.  Nobody is going to sign up to make Dementia Joe look good.  No one.  Not their side and definitely not our side. Flyover country has no interest in avenging Bill de Blasio and BLM.  In fact, Joe should ask Antifa and BLM for volunteers.  Something tells me no hands will go up.

So, that puts a whole new spin on NATO and the other treaties we have in place.  If I were the Japanese or the South Koreans or especially the Taiwanese, I’d be putting together a nuke or two right about now.  And I’m guessing Ukraine, Belarus and even Poland and Germany are re-evaluating their relationships with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

So, in this brave new world even individual US states will need to evaluate what they think the feds can provide for military assistance.  For instance, Texas is becoming aware of just how powerful the Mexican cartels are becoming inside their borders.  Since Biden seems more interested in helping illegals than protecting American citizens from criminal aliens, at some point, I think Texas will need to formalize policies that under normal circumstances would be the responsibility of the federal agencies like ICE and the FBI.  Arresting illegals that are part of the drug trafficking industry will become a very large part of law enforcement in Texas.  Possibly some of the Texans who formerly might have enlisted in the US Army and Marine Corps might end up working for a Texas law enforcement agency that needs tactical skills.

But I think the big takeaway is that Joe Biden and his woke military are on their own.  The real Americans are done.  Joe can send his girls and trannies to keep the peace in Baghdad and Kabul.  The rest of us will stay at home and protect our own right here.  That’s going to make it a very different world.
