Or as the Brits call it National Service on the other side of the pond you call it conscription or the draft , Tomatoes Tomatoes !,

en.wikipedia.org...

Active conscription came to an end in 1973 when the United States Armed Forces moved to an all-volunteer military. However, conscription remains in place on a contingency basis and all male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, residing within the United States, who are 18 through 25 are required to register with the Selective Service System.[2][3] United States federal law also continues to provide for the compulsory conscription of men between the ages of 17 and 45 and certain women for militia service pursuant to Article I, Section 8 of the United States Constitution and 10 U.S. Code § 246.[4][5][6]

With the way our respective countries are tearing themselves apart at this present time in history it would be a good way to integrate the youth of today and install some values in them that would last a life time and then some , The USA and the UK are both going down the toilet because of a lack of respect for the Flag and our elders and our surroundings which were bought and paid for in blood .

Hood rats in London or Chicago it is all the same ,Death and destruction and some one benefits from all the chaos that ensues be it drug lords or undertakers they all have a share in it including police and politicians and it keeps lawyers in work





Time to get old school again or it will get like south America in North America with the deaths and cheap drugs and gun parts appearing in your cities

The gentlemen i respected in my life and who taught me things all did National service /conscription and talked fondle of it . we have infrastructure that is falling apart and a youth that is fat and lazy and needs a good shake up the ass , Girls do girls stuff like nursing for a 2 year period and boys do boy stuff like learn to build not blow up


What is the worst that could happen , your thoughts ATS

And the rolls they have to perform

Do you want them in a front line situation?

Just do it like Israel does it. Everyone serves. Though I'd say that everyone should just do mandatory military training aka boot camp so that you are trained in the event that we go to war. Not that you will actually be serving just training. With very few exceptions.

There are somewhere around six or seven soldiers in support roles of the ones pulling triggers.
Even if they can’t handle the physical demands of the front lines they can drive trucks, cook, fly...etc..

Sounds wise, think that would be acceptable.
I wonder how it works in Israel, not sure the women like it but, but not sure many of the men do either

Well I only say this because if women want true equality in all aspects of life then they should also be subjected to the negative aspects as too.

So you just stand back and watch it burn .


Not on my watch

We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans — born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage — and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.

All the BLM protesters, the radical left, the socialists....

All professionally trained and armed with the full power of the US Military....

Maybe not a bad idea... If they can't get the rightists & the police in this country to cooperate with peaceful protests, they'll just have to defund them the hard way.
can't wait for Operation Wealth Redistribution

National Service is fine.

Put them in training and on reserve component. Training can be performed in HS and specialized training can be performed at a training facility already in service for such training. That way everyone who qualifies enters college age with military training and trade education via MOS qualification.

When I was a kid I passionately opposed National Service.

I look at the number of knobheads around nowadays and their complete lack of regard and respect for anything or anyone, their selfish attutude, lack of passion and originality, their sense of entitlement and snowflake hyper sensitivities and I know that sometihng urgent and drastic has to be done.
I don't see why a year or two of National Service wouldn't help prevent this slide.

We also have stop the politically correct nonsense that is increasingly affecting every aspect of our society.

I really do despair at times.

Nope
But a draft is not needed to "put out the fire".
A draft is a last resort measure.
Not a band aid because congress is doing a poor job.

God yes... but can we wait till I retire in about 14 months..


We need more kids to get out of the nation for a bit and realize everything they are whining about are first world problems and there are a lot of people in the world that think our dirt poor are rich.

That doesnt mean we cant do it better but we are doing pretty bloody good up to this point.
