There is no draft right now. If our country declares war against Iran, there still wouldn’t be a draft. To do so would require an act of Congress. Theoretically, in a worse case scenario, the Trump Administration could argue that a war with Iran is already authorized under the existing ‘AUMF Against Terrorists’ from September 14, 2001.
