    Your posts say otherwise.

    My MOS says 'construction' but my NCO says 'dismounted patrol/security'. There are no front lines anymore, anyone who was actually in knows this.

    I think it's a great idea for the people themselves to defend their nation and community. The government in this case uses the military (in most cases) to further economic or statist interests. I'm looking at you Iraq.

    I'll add my "no" vote and leave it at that.

    LOL. Ok, maybe someday the 96% of people who disagree with you can finally be real Americans like you. Keep banging your chest to make yourself feel important.

    You seem to be doing all the chest banging here.

    Yes, there should be a manditory term of service upon turning 18 or graduating highschool, and after that every able bodied person should participate in at least reguler drills until they age out.

    Anyone not willing to put in at least that minimum is welcome to find another country to call home.

    That's a call for a draft. No, a volunteer army is the surest self defense.

    Really? I suppose Jefferson and Adams would be banished from your utopia? Stop reading starship trooper books and get back to reality...citizen.

    Correct, it's a draft. People who don't want to put the uniform on sure as hell aren't going to elect someone who will also send them to an unjustified war.
