"Sweden to reintroduce [compulsory] military service"
"Sweden said Wednesday it would reintroduce compulsory military service from 2018, eight years after it was abolished. The Scandinavian nation, which has not seen armed conflict on its territory in two centuries, ended conscription in 2010 after it was deemed an unsatisfactory way of meeting the needs of a modern army. 'I hope that we are going to find a path to a more stable, robust and functional means of recruitment,' Defense Minister Peter Hultqvist told a news conference. The new policy will affect Swedes born after 1999, according to a report by a former member of parliament"
AND WHAT EXACTLY "more stable, robust and functional means of recruitment" WOULD THAT CONSIST OF?
This move WILL NOT BE POPULAR with the Swedish young people? More than likely.
See this previous blog entry as germane to the topic of Swedish conscription:
