In times of war, military conscription is directly linked to national survival. This is because manpower has an affect on the outcome of armed conflicts.

In peace time however, military conscription should only apply to those who meet certain criteria.

Compulsory military service can be a great benefit to both the nation and the individual. It will insure that the nation has a large military force that can be easily deployed at a moments notice. Plus military service teaches people values that will help them latter in life like honor, integrity, perseverance, leadership, teamwork, and loyalty. Plus it will do wonders for the national obesity rate wiping it out that is. Besides why would you complain? serving your country is an honor and a god damn privilege. God I wish I didn't have narcolepsy that disqualifies you for military service in the states :(

Some small-minded morons, who don't even know what really is right and wrong, should choose how I am supposed to live my life, even if it is for a relatively short period? No! I'm not a slave whose choices of living are made by someone else. If they have a problem with that, with my freedom, then it means I have their permission to go against their will, with lethal force if necessary.

If you don't trust a leader, you don't fight their wars. They shouldn't be able to force you, that's a dictatorship.

Yes they can because if you say no, its usually followed by the torture of you and your family, well at least in the USSR.
