College students panic over FAFSA's fine print about registering for the draft
By Li Cohen
Updated on: January 6, 2020 / 9:29 AM / CBS News

After a U.S. airstrike killed Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran's Quds military force, in Baghdad on Thursday, Iran vowed "crushing revenge" against all responsible. Now, with #NoWarinIran, #TrumpsWar and #WorldWarIII trending on Twitter, users are looking into the draft — particularly college students about how the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) could play into their potential future military service.

Hundreds of Twitter users posted messages and memes insinuating that the draft, or selective service, will be put into place within the next few months. They also suggested that college-age students would be prioritized for service.

Concerns over an active draft and FAFSA's role in the service even shut down the Selective Service System's website because of the sudden surge in traffic.

They should form a 6th branch of the military just for these washouts; They can be the ones that peel the potatoes and scrub the toilets for the rest of us, and scrape the rust and old paint off of Navy ships being overhauled.

Uniform of the day will be...

Why worry? They can just get their daddies to pay a doctor to write a note.

All the tweets designed to panic the idiots, I smell a deliberate disinformation campaign to roil the US population and get them hysterical about Trump and the drone strike. Even money as to whether it was done by the Democrats, or the Iranians.

Remember campers, rumor is half way around the world before truth gets its boots on in the morning.

Hey dumb children, if we didn't draft for the Iraq invasion we certainly aren't going to draft for Iran the sequel. Get over yourselves. There are plenty of capable adults serving, we don't need to raid the pantywaist section of the liberal arts degrees.

Granted, they'd get taken as POWs or killed by the enemy not even 5 minutes in.

If there was a draft, they'd help the US win. No need for DEVGRU or Delta, the sight of the young US generation facing them would cause laughter so hard the Iranians would have a collective fatal seizure.

No difference. DNC is leading resistance for Iran and the Quds.

I think CCR covered that in the Viet Nam era.



That's a WHOLE lot easier, and a lot less messy, than crapping your pants like Ted Nugent (allegedly) did.


Famous "Deferments"

(I coluld post several but let's "skip a bit, brother" to #1...

John Wayne (WWII). My favorite Wayne films were WWII-based - The High and the Mighty (1954), Island in the Sky (1953). It sucks - it royally sucks old teabags - That Marion Morrison was IRL a chicken-hawk. It's one thing to play-act a hero; It's another thing entirely to BE a hero and later bring it to stage.
