    only if we used our military for defensive purposes.

    But since that is clearly not the case, no way in hell do we make it mandatory that people have to go protect Europeans, or reshape the middle East.

    I, for one, would never want to serve next to a conscript. They are notorious cowards compared to volunteers, and they let lines break.

    Good points....I still maintain that we should have put the blame of 9/11 on Suadi Arabia, and presented them with a bill for replacing the Twin Towers, plus another bill for compensation to the families who lost loved ones or otherwise suffered from the event. If they don't pay up, we "deliver" a few cruise missles in the middle of the night, every night, until they fess up and pay up.



    The Iraq war was purely revenge being exacted by the shrub. Had little to nothing to do with 9/11, except maybe to satisfy some blood lust.
    Iraq was made to pay for the sins of the Saudis.

    Truth rings hollow in empty heads.

    No. No mandatory service of any kind. This is supposed to be a free country.

    freedom is never free.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    if you have to force people to defend freedom with the threat of force, then you already lost it.

    sad isn't it??? that so many who cry about this being a free country are unwilling to lift a finger to help keep it that way.

    what does the "this is a free country" copout have to do with mandatory service. any time any tard gets told to do something they don't like or told they can't do something they always squeal "it's a free country".

    If it's a "free" country, why do i have to pay taxes? why am I required by law to show up monday morning for jury duty? why did I have to register with the selective service when I turned 18? why, why, why??????

    why would mandatory service impinge on my "freedom" any more than paying taxes, or obeying speed limits, or a million other restrictions the govt places on me?

    It's not like they are making you a slave. It's a couple of freakin years, with a good chunk of that spent in training.
