I recently discovered that the USA maintains a roll of potential conscripts. This got me thinking.
For the purpose of this thought experiment let us assume the USA and it's allies has gotten involved in a long, messy and very bloody battle with China over Tawian's independence. This has involved fighting on mainly Chinese soil and China are clearly on the defensive.
If there was a clear mechanism to opt out of service, not necessarily conscientious objector but other excuses as well.
My Question is thus, would you serve if you are conscripted?
Explain your answer.
Note: I'm not nessecarily focusing on fighting china, more of an external threat. Also, for the purposes of this thought exercises, females are on the SSR as well.
