Why does Singapore need compulsory national service?

Posted in Singapore forum

I was wondering, why Singapore despite its size needs one of the most advanced military forces in East Asia? What do you think, is it nowadays still necessary to have two-year compulsory National Service, which every able-bodied male (both Singapore citizen and permanent resident) has to undertake? What are your opinions on that?

    Imagine there are some big bullies and a short scrawny kid. That kid is screwed.
    Now imagine that same kid equipped with big guns, and is skilled at using them. See the difference?

    What has size got to do with the need for defending one's country. It does not mean that if you are small you succumb to your aggressors demands.
