A country is the people in it...not the country itself.
Sacrificing people without their consent to save their country is wrong, IMO.
Every citizen should have the choice whether to enlist or not...even if by not enlisting, the country will not 'survive'.
Freedom of choice is FAR more important then any country.

Depends on the war. If another nation has declared war on us and our very survival is at stake then yes. If it is a war of choice like Nam, Korea, Iraq etc then I say not only no but HELL NO!
A country has a right to a military draft during a time of peace.
If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

If said country is under threat of invasion or ceasing to exist, then yes. It's civic duty to protect your land and your people.
