Thread: Is 'National Service' necessary?

  1. #1

    Default Is 'National Service' necessary?

    Enlisted Act started in 1971... over the years, many young men had gone thru it...

    So the question is "Is NS necessary?"

    i'm not saying it's the best way to spend time, but i'm sure everyone can carry a little something away from their two years, and i'm no patriot, hee hee

    Yep, absolutely.

    The alternate reality is may be too difficult to imagine for young people now - but those born before 1936 will be able to describe this alternate reality in detail.

    People who haven't experienced wars will not appreciate NS. When our lands are occupied by invaders, relatives are raped and killed by invaders, homeland and materials are destroyed, then we'll realise the importance of NS.

    I'll be a good soldier when I go into NS.

    YES, of course it is necessary. To be fair to everybody, we should ask the girls to go to NS as well. They are also citizens of this nation, and have the obligation to serve the country, too!
