    therefore, i think NS is necessary, because after non-stop studying for so many years, i think it is necessary to give us a rest from studying and relax for the 2 years.
    NS is an investment into the future. Everyone of us can now carry a rifle and shoot!

    but with almost all males in the country in it's relatively small army, this same fighting force wont last long in war.

    so, at the end of the day, fight war also will lose.

    waste time, isn't it? =)
    So you want to be a sitting duck?

    Frankly, I think you gain more and helped more being in the Police Force as you interact with the public. What you learned is applied direct in the present. Now I am not saying that it means we are better as we need every one to play some sort of defensive role be it for the present peace time or at a time where military intimidation from outside forces comes into play.
    All are equally important.. home defence and Military defence.. etc

    Boy, you emerge stronger after NS. So, your sperm count improves 3x, your chance of having a kid improves 3x as well.

    The female NS can always take up jobs like:

    1. Medics in Medical Center (sure got more people report sick every day )
    2. Admin Officers/Clerical staffs (This will be the biggest proportion)
    3. Store I/C
    4. Vehicle mechanic (though not sure how many ladies actually interested in this but it's a skill)
    5. Other technical stuff like IT, comms, signal.
    6. Security/Police departments

    Then SAF/Police/SCDF can better utlise the NS boys for other vocations to do other stuffs.

    The girls in Israel does do their part by serving 2 years NS also, many of them also goes into combat vocations.

    No matter how hard you train, there will be war. And came war, there will be casualties. Unless you are Rambo or Austin power. You will get killed.
