I personally wouldn't. I don't really want to do the vigorous training, I don't want to possibly get killed and I don't like idea of killing someone else.
#2
Probably not. If I did though it would be the RAF.

If I got the chance to invade pointless countries like France and Ireland. Then yes.

You do know that not every job in the military requires you to do combat. My brother's been in for 7 years and he job lets him stay inside everyday.

This, however I have thought (and am still kind of thinking) about it in order to train and qualify as a paramedic.

Intensive training could be fun, I enjoy physical activities a lot. But then, have my superiors bitch at me all the time and the possibility of going to war are a big no. Screw my country

I think I'd quite like the training. I wouldn't have minded joining Ireland's military, as they pretty much just do peacekeeping missions.

I just don't think I'd enjoy the very strict ordering around and stuff, nor would I enjoy being far away if I didn't want to be.

Shooting innocent people in Croke Park is not my idea of a good holiday. It would be like something from Ryanair.

Don't be so silly. Irish people aren't innocent.

The Irish military is a joke... you don't technically even have to go into combat if you don't want to but yet you get paid.

OT: No.

Been there, done that. It's not as crazy and killey as people make it sound. I've been in almost half my enlistment and I'm yet to shoot or be shot at.

...but then, I'm also in the Air Force.
#24
Im gonna have to- Israeli guys and girls usually have to enlist at 18: guys till they're 21 and girls till they're 20.

While i'm probably not going to become a killer nor am i going to die, beacuse of medical and family reasons, i'm going to enlist in about a year (current date is November 19).

I'd take the blackjack and hookers.

I would, and it had always been my dream to join up to the infantry, but that was ruined when my knees completely gave up and has left me unable to run...
#27
Military's different here. Maybe I'll join the National Reserve. If some serious shit like a disaster happens out here, I'll be there to help. I'll also get some training, and I'll get paid for attending the trainings. I'll be in it for four years if I choose to join. So maybe I'll do that.

Honest? I'm too heavy to get in, even if I wanted to. That said, no, I wouldn't volunteer for it. Getting drafted would suck though.

That's not true.

You might be getting it confused with the recent mission in Chad, which was controversial due to the real possibility of service men dying there. The Military pointed out, in order to quieten the controversy, that all people being sent to Chad had volunteered for the duty.

I'm not fit enough for training. Besides I don't feel like supporting this country. If this country was going to be invaded I would just round up people and we'de go hiding in the middle of nowhere
Please call me Rainer, was 16 and empty minded when I made my profile.

Sometimes I talk to myself too...but never on the internet.
#32
Actually I feel like I'm the slimy traitor dude. So if my country was invaded I'd betray shit like nothing.

besides patriotism is gay

This is exactly what makes me not want to go into the military.

Though the other parts of it wouldn't be so bad, and the benefits seem pretty nice. I'd still rather not be a part of it.

I used to really want to be in the RAF. Passed the officer selection board. Didn't go in in the end. I wouldn't do it nowadays.
#36
Already managed to get out of service. I'm currently working at community service instead (not mandatory, but it makes me feel I'm doing something with my life).
#37
Yeah, I would

As long as people keep thinking that, they won't be in our way.

Only if Ireland was under threat. But even so, I think most invading armies would go through our military without too much difficulty... waiting for the dust to settle and joining the resistance would be a better idea
