Army warns of fake texts telling people they have been drafted to go to Iran

The Army warned people not to fall for text messages telling them that they have been drafted and must immediately report to the Army to serve in Iran. The draft has not been in effect since 1973 and it would take an act of Congress to reinstate it. People across the country have been receiving these texts but it is not clear how many have been received or who is sending them.

Maybe, but surely the messages from a Nigerian prince wanting to make my dreams come true isn't fake?

The "immediate departure" should be a giveaway that it's a fake or bad joke of a text. If the draft is ever reinstated, there would be some form of basic training before being sent anywhere.

That not how drafts work anyway. It is done by Birthday. It would be a huge announcement all over everything.

That's the real fear. Being forced to live up to the hype of serving their country.

Why does America even have the draft? They have the largest military in the world with a higher defence budget than the next 10 countries combined. Surely they don't need to conscript non-combatants into military service to fill out their ranks.

Seriously Dave... Three percent serve just three percent that can serve do serve... N that's a pathetic truth... Sadly.. N with all the arm chair tuff talk many balk when it's time to serve... It's always someone else's job or they were to busy or to privileged.. U have a president who not any single member of his family nor dad nor grand or own kids ever bothered.. That's y we have a draft... Just incase we must go to war on mass scale.. I bet u are not American Dave... Of course if u are rich in America Dave u can get n excuse note should they be drafted... One more perks of being rich in America.. Others go die to keep u rich dave
