‘Selective Service Repeal Act’ Introduced in Congress

16/04.2021 / Edward Hasbrouck / Antiwar.com - The Selective Service Repeal Act of 2021 (H.R. 2509 and S. 1139) was introduced in Congress on April 14th 2021 with bipartisan support in both the House and the Senate.

Initial co-sponsors of the bill to end draft registration and abolish the Selective Service System are Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR), Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL), Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).

"No young person, regardless of gender, should be subject to a military draft or be forced to register for a draft in the United States. The military draft registration system is an unnecessary, wasteful bureaucracy which unconstitutionally violates Americans’ civil liberties. We should be abolishing military draft registration altogether, not expanding it," said Rep. DeFazio.

"If a war is worth fighting, Congress will vote to declare it and people will volunteer," said Sen. Paul.

Other cosponsors of the bill include Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC). Residents of the District of Colombia, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories are subject to the military draft, but have no voting representation in Congress, only nonvoting "Delegates" to the House of Representatives.

Salir del programa de ingreso postergado (DEP)

https://nnomy.org/depnotevayasEnglish

DEP: Simplemente no vayas

El Programa de Ingreso Postergado también se denomina Programa de Futuros Soldados en el Ejército. Las personas que ingresan al servicio activo deben alistarse primero en el DEP.

 

¿Cambiaste de opinión y quieres salir?

Si te inscribiste en el DEP (o en el "Programa de entrenamiento de futuros soldados" del Ejército) y luego cambiaste de opinión, ten cuidado con los reclutadores que dicen que no puedes salir de allí o que debes presentarte en el campo de entrenamiento para ser liberado. Tampoco es cierto. Para
salir del DEP, hay pasos simples que debes seguir antes de su fecha para presentarse a la
capacitación básica. No espere que su reclutador lo ayude, y NO debe ir a una base militar si le
dicen que se presente allí para ser liberado.

The NDAA for 2021 expands the programs of the Pentagon in our public schools

Gary Ghirardi / NNOMY - A not surprising but concerning feature of the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act is the doubling of the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps in our public schools and the expansion of DoD STEM and of the STARBASE Program into territories that the United States of America controls in the Pacific.

In the case of the JROTC the following is stated in the NDAA Report for 2021:



Expansion of Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program (sec. 547) The committee recommends a provision that would amend section 2031(a)(2) of title 10, United States Code, to insert language expanding the purpose of the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) to include an introduction to service opportunities in military, national, and public service. The provision would also require the Secretary of Defense to develop and implement a plan to establish and support not fewer than 6,000 JROTC units by September 30, 2031.1



As of 2019, the U.S. Department of Defense cites that JROTC programs associated to the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, are taught as elective courses at more than 3,000 high schools nationwide.2 How those expanded programs might be purposed is not totally defined other than a recommendation that there be added a focus within JROTC on cyber security education in schools.

El registro de servicio selectivo merece una audiencia completa en el Congreso

English / Edward Hasbrouck / Counterpunch - Un caso de la Corte Suprema que desafía el requisito de que los hombres, pero no las mujeres, se registren en el Sistema de Servicio Selectivo para un posible reclutamiento militar está obligando al Congreso a tomar una decisión que ha estado evitando durante décadas: terminar el registro de reclutamiento o expandirlo a mujeres jóvenes así como a los hombres jóvenes.

La elección no es entre continuar con el registro de reclutas solo para hombres (que probablemente resulte inconstitucional) y expandir el registro a mujeres. La verdadera elección es si ampliar el registro a las mujeres o ponerle fin por completo. Los proyectos de ley para cada una de esas opciones se presentaron en la última sesión del Congreso y es probable que se vuelvan a presentar en los próximos meses como parte de la Ley de Autorización de Defensa Nacional anual.

Esta es una elección sobre el militarismo, no una elección sobre la igualdad de género. Ampliar el registro de reclutamiento a las mujeres generaría una apariencia de igualdad en la guerra (aunque es probable que las mujeres en el ejército aún estén sujetas a acoso y abuso sexual desproporcionado). Poner fin al registro de proyectos traería consigo una verdadera igualdad en la paz y la libertad.

El año pasado, una Comisión Nacional de Servicio Militar, Nacional y Público recomendó ampliar el registro de anteproyectos a las mujeres. Pero la Comisión nunca consideró seriamente la posibilidad de poner fin al registro, a pesar de que no pudo plantear ningún escenario realista que lo justificara.

Selective Service Registration Deserves a Full Hearing in Congress

Español / March 2, 2021 / Edward Hasbrouck / Counterpunch - A Supreme Court case challenging the requirement for men, but not women, to register with the Selective Service System for a possible military draft is forcing Congress to make a choice it has been avoiding for decades: End draft registration, or expand it to young women as well as young men.

The choice is not between continuing male-only draft registration (which is likely to be found unconstitutional) and expanding registration to women. The real choice is whether to expand registration to women or to end it entirely. Bills for each of those options were introduced in the last session of Congress, and are likely to be reintroduced within the next few months as part of the annual National Defense Authorization Act.

This is a choice about militarism, not a choice about gender equality. Expanding draft registration to women would bring about a semblance of equality in war (although women in the military would likely still be subject to disproportionate sexual harassment and abuse). Ending draft registration would bring about real equality in peace and freedom.

Last year a National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service recommended expanding draft registration to women. But the Commission never seriously considered the possibility of ending registration, despite being unable to come up with any realistic scenario to justify it.

Se solicita a la Corte Suprema que revise la constitucionalidad del requisito actual de registro de reclutamiento solo para hombres
