I don't know about where you live, but here in the UK, as a citizen I can choose not to accept a military call up under the terms of Conscientious Objection, especially since there would be unlikely to be an actual legally declared war to justify a draft.

Here you can object...but that may mean jail time etc...but a War has to be agreed upon by Congress AND the President...and then they have to decide to ALSO call for a draft.

There are penalties for not responding to the draft...it's part of being a citizen here. Now the likelihood is very low.
