Do you think once you graduate high school you should have to serve in the military?

My school is talking about this now and I say you should not be forced but its hard convincing them. For the most part they agree we should have to serve in the military for x amount of time once graduating. What do you think about this?

I think your school sounds like a group of stuck up pricks.


Edit: wow, that sounded harsh... but that really is pretty stupid.

No no no

We have enough people, we have enough weapons. Adding more people (in a compulsory way) would send our already inflated military budget to astronomical heights.

**** don't ask don't tell. I'd tell so fast and I'd get my ass kicked out before any hot military men got near it just because I'm against it that bad. (Military men )

I once saw somebody carry a Guitar Hero controller in a case to protect it. He probably should have packed his testicles in there too, seeing as he won't need to use those for quite a while.

I'll level with you.
I'll do 2-3 years of service.
Then I get to go to college for free, ONLY if I can pass the stringent entrance exams present in most countries (for people from outside the US, every idiot with a couple dollars can go to college so a degree means ****).
That's my fix.

I think that is violating some of your rights if you live in the US, or anywhere really... No way people should be forced to be trained for murder.

No. That is the most ridiculous thing I have heard all day.

I don't think so, but I'm also not some anti-military retard either. Military service should be voluntary unless we are loosing a war badly and need the troops, even then, you should be allowed to choose your branch of service and specialty (except for coast guard, p*ssies... not saying coast guard is bad, just that is the default for people who don't want to see action)

Wrong, the rights that Americans enjoy are not the same as the rights that people of other countries enjoy.

There are countries with compulsory military service.

it should only be nesscessary if there is a war going on against a very large country and we have a very good chance of losing the war otherwse.
#25
Where do you live? It really depends on if your country needs you that desperately or not. If your not willing to sacrifice two years of service (which btw only 5% of people actually see combat, so dont assume you'll get shot at) then you dont deserve to reap the rights your government allows you. Anyways, I think this should only be in dire situations like Israel. Everyone still deserves the right to choose.

Some countries do do this. Finland and Germany spring to mind.

I think it's pretty unnecessary in most countires where there are plenty of people wiling to enter the military without being forced.

Your school can't actually make you so don't worry about it.
And no, it should not be mandatory.

No.

I think military training should be encouraged. For the sake of fitness, self-defense, and survival skills, etc. Military service shouldn't be mandatory, but the training could be beneficial to society.

In the US it isn't needed. How our economic system is setup the poor are forced into service based on class. Service becomes the ONLY way that these kids can go to college or better themselves.

Training is one thing, but shipping people out to a conflict would have to be optional.

If anyone who is forced to serve in the military dies in a war, I would consider whoever forced them to serve to have murdered them. I think most people probably would.

your school has no power to do that, if they do then move.

Also, unless you live in Israel or somewhere where war is constant it seems like a dumb idea. It'd waste a lot of tax money to train a whole bunch of kids to fight in a war and they only wind up hanging around a base and masturbating for a couple of years.

No, the government does not own me. Folks in Washington have everything all twisted.

i don't support the government, and i don't necessarily see them as the ones giving ME the ****ing right to do anything. i didn't ask for their help or leadership, so i don't feel subject to any of their laws or standards. i do as i please in accordance to my own morals.
