Otherwise, hell no, they won't go.

I say yes but with a caveat: conscription would be necessary if the U.S. was invaded but not necessary in foreign adventures like Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan.
In my opinion no country has this right to make people enter a force that may cost them themselves.

of course how would else that country will survive?
I would have said yes prior to Clinton's silly excursion into Bosnia and Haiti and now Obama's mindless ricocheting around the Middle East. Now, it's tough to consider one man's political or bribed military exercises around the world sufficient to subject our young people to his uncaring madness.
I believe in conscription in peace time and during war. Someone who is part of society should take it as a duty to defend their nation if they are threatened or attacked.
This is where the Israelies are smart. They have a trained populace as military service is compulsory. They can rely on civilians who know how the military works, know how to use weapons and know how to take care of themselves. Tis a bit late when a country is attacked, to begin training because it takes some weeks to go through training. Smarter to have it already done.

I will add that if they draft me, they better not still have the ACU.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
