    Not sure. Could be a good way to meet people, gain skills and experience as well as encourage moral values.

    Yup, but only wartime (although I support a mandatory 'public service' gap year for kids at 18, which would include the option of military service)

    No future war would be fought that way.

    And no, people don't want it, we couldn't afford it, we have nowhere to put people and the armed forces don't want it.

    Before national service I was a rootless and angry young chap with a grudge against society. Afterwards, I was the same fellow with a training in weapons and explosives.
