Paranoid? Moi?
David M. Miyasato enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserve in 1987, served three years of active duty during the first Gulf War and received an honorable discharge in 1991. He remained on inactive status for five more years, until 1996. Since then, the Kaua'i resident has married, started an auto window tinting business and this year, he and his wife had their first child.

But in September, Miyasato received a letter from the Army recalling him to active duty and directing him to report to a military facility in South Carolina on Tuesday.

So what precisely did Bush mean when he promised no backdoor draft??
So if this guy wins his case, the good thing will be that they'll have a hard time doing it to anyone else. Of course the bad side is that they'll have even more incentive to start up the regular draft...

The whole thing is so bloody depressing. I can't even stand to read the news these days (not that it was easy before the election). Iraq is a tragic mess. It makes me sick. -- Kate
