Of course, China knows that the Biden Administration wants war. They are increasing their age limits for military service to up to 60 years old. Don’t get upset and think you will be too old for the United States and Europe. You can never be too old to die for your local politician.

We will see the draft age rise dramatically in the West all because our fearless world leaders, who will never go to war themselves, all need World War III desperately. Just as we can no longer define what a woman actually is, we can no longer discriminate against women for the draft and it is also a matter of being fair to end age discrimination for the draft. It was Franklin Roosevelt who made the remark after going to great lengths to get the US involved in World War II. He said:

“War is young men dying and old men talking.”

While governments play with the numbers, during World War I, the Great War, they asserted that the average age of dead soldiers was twenty-seven years old. However, more nineteen-year-olds died than any other age group.

The U.S., Military raised the limit for enlistment in June 2014 precisely when our War Model turned up with the Air Force raising the maximum age for enlistment from 27 to 39 years of age. The enlistment age restrictions for the Army, Navy, and Marines are 35, 34, and 28 respectively. The U.S. Army announced that they were increasing the maximum enlistment age to forty-two years old, and then the second time in six months after previously raising it to 40 years old.

The UK Ministry of Defence raised the enlistment age limit for its Army Reserve in November 2014 to 52 from 43, and for those individuals with specific qualifications or experience the age limit was raised to 45 up to 50.

For World War III, combat forces will most likely be drafted up to the age of 40 or perhaps 42. After all, they claim that 40 is the new 20. So start with those pushups. Get used to it. You are expected to die for the Ukrainian Nazis and Taiwan neither of which would actually alter the future of the United States.

And by the way, women you will NOT be discriminated against anymore. They have already been talking about drafting women as well to satisfy Hillary who argued women can do anything a man does – from being president to dying on the battlefield. You better start having kids real fast. But you too will die for Ukrainian Nazis – what an honor.
