My god, I think he's actually going to do it...

Listening to the radio this morning, they played a long segment from Bush's most recent speech, and it's unsettling. He describes the need to "expand the military", and says that Gates' first task is to figure out how to do so. He describes the so-called "war on terror" as "the calling of this generation", and is pretty explicit about the fact that this is going to take a long time to fight it.

Can this be read as anything other than the prelude to a draft? That's sure as heck what it sounds like. Ugly as we've thought the politics have been to date, they may be about to get a *lot* nastier...
