Former talk show host and retied Naval officer Montel Williams, like the rest of us, saw that video of the Marines in full combat gear urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban solidiers - he just has kind of a different idea about how their behavior should be dealt with.
In a satellite interview with TMZ, Williams commented that "making" people join the military would diminish some of the stress put on people who volunteer to serve. In his own words, "why don't we spread out that stress and start making more people put on the uniform and defend this democracy?"
How the draft would solve anything, he doesn't explain - his only point is that the stresses of defending the country must be getting to the soldiers, which is the cause of behavior like that of the Marines in the now-infamous video.
"Maybe it's about time that this country wake up and understand," he continued, "that we can't put the pressure of defending our democracy on less that .25% of this entire population."
Because making people do something to defend their democracy is just the definition of a democracy, right, Montel?
