I have been set an assignment on the Ethics around conscription into the armed forces..."In this modern age, can it be justified to enlist young men into the armed forces?".

Im not really stumped or anything just looking for some information, places to search, opinions, goverment justifications, specific ethical/moral issues, etc.

Anything is much appreciated,
make sure you approach from the standpoint of "if everyone does mandatory military service, will the government be more discerning when sending people off to die" too. even though i'm against the draft, mandatory military service may have that going for it.
