COMING TO THINK OF IT, WHY SHOULD ONLY UK AND THE USA BE OUT THERE IN FRONT LINE, FIGHTING FOR SECULARISM OF THE REST OF THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY INDIA?
THE U.S.A., THE SUPER POWER OF WORLD, OUGHT TO RECRUIT SOLDIERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, ESPECAILLY FROM INDIA THAT IS FIGHTING A LOSING BATTLE AGAINST ISLAMIC TERRORISM.
HERE IS AN ORIGINAL SUGGESTION BY AN NRI IN THE USA. IT'S A GREAT IDEA.
..................AN INTERNATIONAL US ARMY
Today, April 24th 2004, in the editorial section of the news journal of DE it says, the following:
Military draft may be way to sustain Army on all fronts – Whether military draft should be reinstituted in the US is being discussed again because of the heavy demands on the armed services by wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and commitments to NATO, Bosnia, Korea and other places.
What I want to suggest appears unorthodox but I’d like to suggest it anyway because America is trying to help to keep the peace in the world. And our American children are being sacrificed. The idea I’d like to propose is that America declare in a foreign country like India that any man who wants to join the American Army from India if he’s qualifies he will be taken and he has to serve 15 years with regular pay, but if he serves 15 years he gets a chance to immigrate to the US with his immediate family. The Government could get people from all over the world and make an international force.
The mechanics go like this, once it is announced, the people interested would give their name to the American Embassy and an American person in charge would interview and selects the good candidates and they can take for example 500 and test them in their countries and pick out the best people. Those chosen would come to America and get training. First it should be on a trial basis, on one or 2 countries like India and Russia for example. America uses foreigners for many other reasons why not for the Army.

Absolutely marvellous idea. Congratulations for this INITIATIVE. Global terrorism must be confronted and defeated by a global army.
