”An Industrial War of Attrition Would Require Vast Numbers of Troops"
Deduction of a genius! I speak facetiously here.
USA reinstitutes the military draft? Conscription? Partial or otherwise? I honestly and sincerely hope not in all circumstances!!
From Mises.org ^ | 09/25/2023 | Zachary Yost | 10/1/2023 | the tip from Freeper.
"The most recent edition of the US Army War College’s academic journal includes a highly disturbing essay on what lessons the US military should take away from the continuing war in Ukraine. By far the most concerning and most relevant section for the average American citizen is a subsection entitled 'Casualties, Replacements, and Reconstitutions' which, to cut right to the chase, directly states, 'Large-scale combat operations troop requirements may well require a reconceptualization of the 1970s and 1980s volunteer force and a move toward partial conscription.'"
I honestly pray and "sincerely hope" there is no resumption of conscription and the military draft USA.
Much better a volunteer force having the requisite degree of training and motivation than a group of persons being for the most part FORCED to do something they do not WANT to do.
As to the necessity of fighting a protracted attrition industrialized war, just take measures so that no such conflict even occurs!!
