There is no 'backdoor draft' and the HuffPo knows it. This is just one more headline they have skewed to fit their appeasement agenda. More gobbleygook liberal-speak.
When you enlist in the military you sign a contract. Sometimes people leave the military with time remaining on their contracts and if the military finds they have a need for a particular skill set, they can recall those soldiers within a specified timeframe.
All of the soldiers understand what the moonbats at the HuffPo fail to comprehend;

Anthony Breaux, 24, from La Place, La., said he had a feeling that eventually he would be recalled to service after hearing of so many other soldiers who were pulled from IRR status. Breaux, who left active duty in September 2002, said he knew it was part of the bargain when he joined the army.

"Well, I signed up. I signed the papers. So you know what? I got to do what I got to do," Breaux said, before getting ready for a reconnaissance patrol around Camp Anaconda.

I remember in the mid 80's when I joined the navy they brought some people back from IRR to help bring the Battle Ships out of moth balls. Its nothing new, just something to throw out there to try to get the uninformed fired up over nothing.

You are right. IIR is part of the contract military personnel sign up for. So, this is not a draft. Good post.

No one means it is an ACTUAL draft ya idiots. It means they are doing things not normally done in order to keep enough feet on the ground. It is an example of the lengths the military has to go to because this stupid war and the way it has been conducted has driven off new recruits and the military is woefully behind in recruiting quotas. I've got a clue you can buy cheap.

We know its not an actual draft, moron. But that doesnt seem to be stopping the dishonest Left from trying to insinuate that with misleading headlines that call it a draft.

You see, liberals need to use trickery,wordplay, and rumor-mongering to try and scare the electorate into voting for them.
