While I don't think that S.89 and H.163 — the twin bills which propose mandatory two-year terms of military service for all US residents aged 18-26 — are in danger of passing any time soon, the rumbling noises from Rumsfeld, Bush et al. about ramping up the US military for the "war on terrorism" make me fear that the Republicans may try to push the bills through.

I've written pre-emptively to my Representative and my two Senators (with particular attention to my Senator who's running for President this year) to let them know how much I oppose these bills. Frankly, I suspect that all three are already in my camp on this subject, but it never hurts to let them know their constituents' (or, in this case, constituent's) views.
