Gollum wants to know

Since the Army Reserve and the Army National Guard have raised the age limit for recruits from 34 to 39, can we expect the future draft age to be raised to 39 as well?

Rumors have long been a flyin' that the Selective Service System's former acting director Lewis Brodsky presented a proposal to senior Pentagon officials just before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, seeking to extend the age of draft registration to 34, up from 25. (And include chix.)

Why not go all the way up to age 55? Didn't W tell the over 55 crowd they shouldn't worry about Social Security? So it's us under 55 crowd who are the whiners? Send our asses to war, whydon'tcha? That'll show us!
