    I already live in canada so I don't think the option of running is there for me ;)

    As to fighting, I would fight any war my country asked me as long as it did not require me to compromise my beliefs (for instance on oaths) and as long as I was not fighting a christian enemy.

    If our security was so compromised as to need the draft, I'd probably be in training for the Navy already.

    For one i'am over age to get in the army regulary. Second our constitution forbids wars against others without un mandatory. And AFAIK drafts can't be used to fight in foreign country, only self-defence. When someone would have to go, than our gun loving volounteers.
    But i doubt a gov which sends drafts to other countries will be long in office, possible not longer than i need to gather my stuff together (and book a ticket to canada :D)
    I would never fight for other people richness or the political stupidity of a government.

    I would never fight to further the odious aims of the PNAC.

    It should also depend on the situation. If it was like Vietnam, where the govt just intervened in a country we had little to do with (doesn't mean I didn't supprt the war, it was just sorta...random?), then maybe a lot of people would be draft-dodgers. But if our nation was attacked, like in WWII, then I think you'd have people lining up for blocks to enlist and avenge your country.

    Well, we were with you from the outset of the war in Iraq, if that's what you're referring to. We were among the four original participating countries.

    I was already drafted, and I didn't flee to anywhere.

    And if there was a war going on I would fight. It's better then the other option: facing the firing squad.
