Yes, military training is basically a part of a guy's education career and he is expected to continue to serve his country through the reserves.

And yes you do have a point about the "one million volunteers" in Korea but with so many people, I hardly think a draft would be neccessary. With that many, SURELY there should be enough volunteers.

Just like here. Military training is a natural part of education and man without military training is not man. Civil service hippies are weird faggots and communists whose only right purpose is to be used as mine ploughts.
A problem in Finland is that nowadays it's so damn easy to take civil service, for instance if you go by the book you should have ethical or religous reasons to choose civilservice. In the old days it was much harder choosing civilservice.

A officer once told us in the military about one guy who told him that the wanted to take civil service. So the officer made all the papers ready for him and when he came to the place where he'd make a cross for ethical or religous reasons he asked the officer "what does ethical mean?" , the officer asked him "do you have religous reaons to take civil service?" he answered "no" then he laughed and told him then you have ethical reasons.

Nobody takes civil service for ethical reasons they choose civilservice because they don't have the strenght to do military service...

No, that is not problem at all. Army doesn't want or need all wuzzies to join and mess around. That is good decision for all to boot all shit off the carts.

What would you do with a soldier who wants to resist enemy only by throwing flowers and starts to cry when temperature decreases under 20C? All people just don't fit military.

That's true, but many people that take civilservice would manage fine in the military if they just gave it a little more effort and not take the easy way out.

But you've got a good point there also...

Doesn't matter. That kind of people should stay very far away from any military or weapon and they got their right to disagree.

If someone can't go army for some reason of his own, its ok and he will not go. If someone wants to quit, its ok too. And well, the result is all shit has been booted off the carts. As i said, all weak pussies have better to stay at home.
