Selective Service’s New Tweet Raises Speculation A Draft Is On The Horizon


A recent tweet by the Selective Service has many users on Twitter speculating that a draft could be issued in the near future.

For reference, the Selective Service by definition  “is an independent agency of the United States government that maintains information on those potentially subject to military conscription (i.e., the draft) and carries out contingency planning and preparations for two types of the draft: a general draft based on registration lists of men aged 18–25, and a special-skills draft based on professional licensing lists of workers in specified health care occupations”.

Most states automatically put peoples’ names into the Selective Service database when they apply for their driver’s license.

Well, a recent tweet by the Selective Service hinted that due to the current uprising in Ukraine a draft may not be that far out of reach.

Take a look at the tweet here:

Notice how the selective service stated that they would team up with FEMA.

It appears “host of Info Wars Alex Jones was right.

For the last decade, Jones has gone on record saying that the US government is planning to put its population in FEMA camps in order to completely control them.

Kake reported what they believe what would need to happen before a draft is initiated:

Young Americans used to anxiously watch game show-like lottery drawings on their TVs that would determine if the government would force them to go to war – the draft.

“It started in the Civil War when the bloodshed was so great that Lincoln couldn’t get enough volunteers,” said Andrew Orr.

Orr is the Kansas State Military History Director. He said the draft ended in 1973, and we’ve been an all-volunteer army ever since.

Fast forward nearly 50 years, and with the escalating war between Russia and Ukraine, many Americans are now wondering if the draft could come back.

“It would have to be something so bad that we would need to create an entirely new model of an army to wage war,” said Orr.

So, what would it take for the U.S. even to consider reinstating the draft? Orr said there are only two possible ways.

“Full-scale war with China, or Russia. Those things could necessitate a draft. China would, Russia might,” said Orr.

This begs the question, how likely is it for the current situation to escalate to that point?

“The scale of crisis necessary to upend the entire way the military works is so big that we’re nowhere near it right now,” said Orr. “The odds are against the U.S. and Russia ending up directly at war in Ukraine. Both sides have reasons to avoid that because we have an awful lot of nuclear weapons. Which makes most people think twice about whether we want to be shooting at each other.”

Orr said even in the unlikely event of there ever being a draft again in the U.S., it would be at least 18 months before the first people drafted would be formed into units. He said we would need a massive new program to manufacture enough weapons, and would have to build new military bases all around the country to even start training.

Will the US ever launch a draft again?
