Yep - lets ask a child what do they think about North Korean and Iranian Nuclear aspirations - whether its worth dying for. Its a good job probably the most selfish and egotistical demographic arent making more important decisions than whether they want sprite or coke with their happy meal.
Sometimes people on an individual basis are incapable of making rational decisions. Its the prisoners dilemma - an individual would be motivated to shirk any possible military service hoping that everyone else will go. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what would happen on the aggregate scale if everyone took this personally rational position.
Nobody wants to die during military service but if everyone took this selfish view there would be no military and no defence of our way of life and morals.

I've prepared my children against the draft. I have told them to never vote for Democrats. Because looking back at recent history, it is Democrats that want the draft, and Republicans that don't.
