During the Clinton administration our military was drastically cut, way too much. This is not a slam on Clinton, it seems that when ever this country goes for a long period without armed conflict, everyone looks at the budget the military gets and figures there is a place to get money from. It's at the expense of our protection and National security when that happens.
Today our National Guard and Reserves are deployed and make up too much of our in country fighting forces around the globe. That was not the intent of the National Guard, it was somewhat for the Reserves however.
Point being, if we had maintained a larger standing military, this (the draft) would not even be an issue, active duty soldiers would get longer breaks between deployments, and the citizen soldiers of the National Guard and Reserves wouldn't be used as much.
