WBW News & Action: No Drafts, No War Taxes, Yes a Future of Peace

End U.S. Draft Registration

The U.S. government is going to either expand draft registration to young women (signing them up to be forced against their will to kill and die) in the name of “equal rights,” or it is going to end this outdated barbarism. Contrary to popular myth a draft does not decrease the chances or duration or extent of wars.

Before the end of December 31, 2019, you can use this form to submit an official public comment as a member of the public to the National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service asking the Commission to recommend that Congress enact H.R. 5492, a new bill to end draft registration.

If you are from the United States, please also click here to quickly email your Representative and your two Senators to urge them to co-sponsor H.R. 5492.

    no taxes! governments cannot bring peace but we can bring peace for ourselves!

  2. I AGREE that we should NOT start a WAR, BUT what are we supposed to do if they ATTACK us? ? ?
    Iran is a HUGE radical group that seem to be trying to take over ALL of our countries and to make all of us part of their country? ? ?
    SO are we supposed to do? ?
    Are we just supposed to do, JUST give up and just let them take complete control of everything that we have and to make it theirs? ? ?
    OR what are we supposed to do other than to give up, are we supposed to just let them slap us and do NOTHING but to make them our controlling government without doing anything to create WAR against them and to make them to destroy themselves because we do NOT like being slapped in face and do NOTHING OR are we just wanted to HIT BACK and to destroy their armies to KILL ALL of their actions and to make them part of our country wit nothing in their armies to continue to try to make us into a part of their country? ? ?
