Crosby Blames Draft For Vietnam Opposition, Doesn't Want It Back

Rock legend DAVID CROSBY will quit America if politicians opt to bring back the draft and force young men to fight for their country. The CROSBY, STILLS + NASH star was at the forefront of the anti-Vietnam peace movement in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and he thinks opposition to the Iraq war is lame by comparison because students aren't facing the horror of having to fight. But he's not advocating the draft returns - because he has an 11-year-old son he's determined to keep out of harm's way. Crosby says, "In Vietnam, college students were staring death in the face, and that will get your attention very quickly - and bring your idealism to the fore. If they put in a draft, people will respond. "I'll have to think about where I'm going to live because I have an 11-year-old and they'll be getting him over my dead goddamn body."
