Worth modifying the all-volunteer military?

One of my favorite columnists, Charles Wheelan, aka, the Naked Economist, wrote a piece a few weeks back called "A Moral Hazard of Global Proportions." In it, Wheelan describes his idea for modifying the military to bring back a variation of the draft and something quite novel that he calls "the Peace Corp with guns."

Quite an interesting read. Check it out.
