Suppose National Service was no longer mandatory but voluntary basis instead. Is NS really necessary? Is it some sort of disguised welfare?

I guess if its no longer mandatory... highly unlikely that people will want to volunteer for it... or at least not in enough numbers that could keep SAF 'fighting fit' as the saying goes....

Is NS necessary ?? I would said Yes... some would said No...

LOL... only you would refer to NS as a privilege.. :bsmilie:

See how good this has worked for USA? *sarcasm*
And how well will it work in the future? China is gaining into a position where it can easily use the chain of dependency and choke the US.
Much will depend on the economical policies in US. And we all know what monkey is sitting there at the wheel .. (apologies to all primates for this analogy).
