Build a man made island, dump them there and let them destroy their own community and not ours.
*Cough* Australia.

Because clearly that would do our armed forces the power of good, without discrediting people who choose to join the army as a career in the slightest.
Well when you look at it, a lot of those in the armed forces lack good qualifications, come from broken/deprive backgrounds, etc. Most people who have a choice (whether it's qualifications, money, power, etc) go elsewhere. Would you enrol for target practice at less than £15K a year with little or no government support?

I'd say it would be one of the best places for them, instil discipline, a community/team working ethos, provide them with skills and training to help them support themselves on the outside, instil a sense of respect for others, etc, attributes which many of our generation lack.

Plus these issues with society seem to have increased since the dissolution of compulsory national service. I know, many more factors come to play like lack of discipline in a familial situation, cultural attitudes, etc, but it has contributed to our present state of society.

lock them up. force them to be educated. if they dont pass the exams keep them locked up until they do.

also. lock up the parents aswel, see if they can also pass some exams. teach them how to keep children after making them.
