- I think, that the majority of our research team is of
the opinion that President Bush will be leading our nation to war again
against Iran sometime this summer. And, when he does, the war will be
just as "fraudulent, and illegal" as is the present war in Iraq.
- The difference this time, however, is that the Soviet
Union and China will be drawn into the fray on the side of Iran. And,
the war could escalate very quickly into a "nuclear event" of
major proportions. The Zionist-controlled state of Israel will do whatever
is necessary to draw us into their mid-East agenda.
- You may recall during the Presidential debates, Bush
repeatedly stated that there would be "no draft of our young people".
I would not rely on his integrity for this statement. The government
has made many efforts recently to block Americans from fleeing to Canada
to escape the draft. I would suggest to you that you make a copy of this
e-mail to keep in your files in case any of your loved ones may be called
up for their possible "volunteering" into the service.

- How To Avoid The Draft Or National Service
- By Rumor Mill News.com
No dodging. Just refuse to volunteer. Here's how --
- I hope that you will not be offended if I tell you how
the "draft" works. I realize that most people THINK they know
how it works, but in most cases they are in error. And you can avoid the
worry when 'College and Canada will not be options [because] in December
2001, Canada and the U.S. signed a "smart border declaration,"
which could be used to keep would-be draft dodgers in.' Being willing
(and eager) to fight for one's country when it is truly in danger is one
thing. Having the courage to refuse to fight in immoral and/or unconstitutional
"wars" is quite another matter, I believe. No need to "dodge"
the ball if they're not allowed to hit you with it, if you merely 'take
your stand' and refuse to VOLUNTEER!
- 1. Mr. A receives a "draft
notice" and is told to report on a certain date to a certain place
where he receives his physical and mental tests...then he is classified
with a number indicating whether he is A1(first called).
- Continued here:
...all the way down to 4F(unfit for duty).
- 2. Mr. A is told that he is to report for "induction"
into the military and to appear at a certain military base for that purpose
on a date specified.
- 3. By "LAW" he must appear there...or a warrant
for his arrest will be issued.
- 4. Assuming he reports as directed he will have another
brief physical and tests and then is told to "line up on the yellow
line (painted on the floor)
- 5. A Recruiting Officer will then tell all those "joining
the army (or whatever) to take one step forward... (Oh, oh, THOSE WHO
DID THIS JUST "VOLUNTEERED!")This is done so that no one can
"legally" claim they were "forced into involuntary servitude!"
- "RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND AND SWEAR ALLEGIANCE."
(almost everyone does!...thinking it must be REQUIRED!): "I, (name)
do solemnly swear that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution
of the United States of America and will defend it against all enemies
foreign and domestic, and will obey the orders of the President and the
officers appointed over me, so help me God."
- 6. Those who "voluntarily" stepped forward
CANNOT NOW CLAIM THEY WERE "DRAFTED"...they stepped forward voluntarily
and took the Oath voluntarily!
- 7. Assume Mr. B was smarter than Mr. A and HE DID NOT
STEP FORWARD ANDTHEREFORE DID NOT TAKE THE OATH OF ALLEGIANCE. (the recruiter
will probably say something like this: "what's the matter with you,
don't you know what' step forward' means?" Mr. B responds, "sure
I do, but I AM NOT VOLUNTEERING TO SERVE IN THE MILITARY...If you want
me you must 'take me' against my will by force!" 8. All of those
who "volunteered" will now be excused from the room...and the
Mr. B will be cajoled with persuasive arguments...at first...then, when
nothing works to change his mind he will be called names and insulted,
possibly even assaulted by one or more military people present there as
- 9. IF Mr. B does not weaken, stands his ground, eventually
the tormentors will give up and have him arrested on some charge. However,
there is NO lawful way that they can MAKE him go into the military...because
of the Constitutional prohibition against "involuntary servitude"...which
is why NO ONE IS TRULY EVER "DRAFTED" AND MUST BE "SEDUCED
" INTO VOLUNTEERING!

- One thing to say at this point is what the cops are
coached to say on the witness stand: "Am I ordered?"
- If the recruiter says "No" - then obviously
you're OK. If the recruiter says "Yes" - then you say "By
what authority do you, a military officer, order me, a civilian?"
If the recruiter says anything else, repeat the question until you get
Yes or No.
- If the recruiter says "I order you by the authority
of the United States Government" then respond: "Which clause
of the Constitution gives you, a military officer, to order me, a civilian?"
Another thing to say is: "Am I free to go?" If the recruiter
says "Yes" - then obviously leave. If the recruiter says
"No" then say: "Am I under arrest?" "Am I your
prisoner?" "Am I kidnapped?" "If I'm not free,
then what am I?" and again, keep repeating the question. Another
thing to say is: "I want an attorney."
- Another thing to say is, of course, *nothing* at all.
I think I would go with "Am I free to go?" because if you get
to "Yes" then you can leave and he would look bad ordering an
- If you ask the question three times and don't get a yes
or no, then say, "Well I must be free to go, because I asked you three
times and you won't tell me I'm not."
- Then I would slowly turn around and leave, and if he
keeps trying to interact I would just keep repeating the question. ===
Here's an excerpt from a book:
- The Army induction officer instructed the draftees to
"take one step forward" as their names were called, and said
that step would signify their induction into the Army. When reluctant Willie's
name was called, he answered present, but did not step forward. After the
ceremony, he went home instead of to camp. When the MP's came for him,
he went to court for a writ of habeas corpus to retain his freedom. "The
officer himself," Willie argued, "said the step forward is what
would make me a soldier. As I didn't take the step, I'm still a civilian
and the Army has no claim on me." Counsel for the Army replied, "The
Army isn't being run by childish games. Willie and a hundred others appeared
to be inducted, and he was inducted before the whole group as any fool
there could plainly see."
- Willie retained his civilian status. The court ruled
that the draft law required some definite ceremony to transform a civilian
into a soldier. As the Army decided to have one step forward constitute
the ceremony, and Willie didn't take the step, he wasn't a soldier. U.S.

- How To Stay Out of the Military (Draft Resistance)
- By David Wiggins The legal requirement to register
for the draft demands a decision: give up your freedom and your conscience,
or conscientiously resist.
- All the good reasons that would prevent a free man from
volunteering for military service, also apply to resisting the draft.
How in a "free country" can the first requirement of a young
man, when he comes of age, be to sign up to accept orders to kill for the
state in an organized way? There is never a need to compel a free man
to take up a cause that is both necessary and just; but a man who is drafted
is never free, and thus his cause can never be assumed to be either necessary
- The draft is not simply an academic interest. There is
not enough military manpower to sustain the commitments the President has
- We constantly hear that our troops are "stretched
too thin." To assist the United States, both the President and Secretary
of State have made serious requests for significant military manpower contributions
from other nations.
- Continued here:
These requests have largely fallen on deaf ears. The President has repeatedly
stated he will not "back down" meaning, we must assume, that
the military forces will continue to be "thinly stretched."
- Where will they find relief? It appears they are looking
at young Americans who are free to volunteer for military duty, but in
good conscience, choose not to do so.
- With certain exceptions, all men residing in the United
States are required to register for the draft within 30 days of their 18th
birthday. The obligation of a man to register is imposed by the Military
Selective Service Act, which establishes and governs the operations of
the Selective Service System.
- In addition to the Military Selective Service Act, the
"Health Care Personnel Delivery System" was authorized by Congress
in 1987 to deal with large-scale casualties that outstripped the active-duty
military's ability to handle them.
- If implemented, the bill would require a mass registration
of male and female health care workers between the ages of 20 and 45. At
this time; however, the Selective Service has no statutory authority to
draft medical personnel. That authorization would be provided by legislation
to be introduced and passed in Congress at the time of a national defense
- That "M-Day" legislative package has not been
made available for public comment or congressional debate. See the Center
on Conscience and Wars "Health Care Professionals and the Draft"
for details regarding the Health Care Personnel Delivery System.
- The Pentagon is considering other "special skills"
drafts, to include military linguists, computer experts, or engineers,
which could arise from other immediate needs. "We're going to elevate
that kind of draft to be a priority," said Lewis Brodsky, acting director
of the Selective Service System.
- A bill before the House Armed Services Committee would
require the induction of young men into the military "to receive basic
military training and education for a period of up to one year."
