I'm sorry. Your article is rubbish.
I think its important for the president to say, uh, this is an important obligation. If we are gong into a war then all of us go, not just some. -Obama
Recently in my posting of the Obama Calls For National Civilian Stasi story I pointed how how his calling for all middle & high school children to perform every year in a “National Security Force” (spy on your neighbors, etc) I pointed out the parallels with Democrat Charley Rangel’s annual legislative push for a “Universal National Service Act” requiring all men and women ages 18-42 to serve in military or homeland security service.

If you go with only what Obama says, it sounds like a poor attempt to combat inner city crime. If large portions of the youth are sent away to millitary service, there will be less youth to comit crime or get into the habit(or just displace that crime onto other countrys populace, and summarily hide the info). I cant wait to see how obama is going to make being an "uncle tom" cool to inner city kids.

Does anyone know if there is a PUBLISHED stance that he takes regarding mandatory service?
Require 100 Hours of Service in College: Obama will establish a new American Opportunity Tax Credit that is worth $4,000 a year in exchange for 100 hours of public service a year.
“We will ask Americans to serve,” the Illinois Democrat said. “We will create new opportunities for Americans to serve.”
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set,” he said Wednesday. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
