Default Norway requires all men to do military duty. Women may have to join them doing milita

Military duty has long been compulsory for Norwegian men, but the same may soon be true for the countryís women now that the Norwegian Labour Party has approved a measure which would make military service mandatory for all young Norwegians regardless of gender.
The Labour Party approved the verneplikt (conscription) measure at a national meeting last weekend, following in the footsteps of its Center Party and Socialist Left (SV) party coalition government partners earlier in the year. The Liberal Party (Venstre) also supports a military draft for women, and the issue is on the agenda for an upcoming Conservative Party (HÝyre) meeting.
Norwegian women can already be summoned for military service evaluation, a process known as sesjonsplikt, or join the military on a volunteer basis. Anne-Grete StrÝm-Erichsen, Norwayís defence minister, says extending the draft to women sends a strong signal that womenís duty and right to contribute towards the nationís defence is just as great as menís.

Norway requires all men to do military duty. Women may have to join them doing military service. I wonder why can't the US require all citizens do national service.

Israel requires both men and women to serve at least two years.

I am not sure what you mean, and why that matters.

Required service is associated with advanced socialist countries. Countries that take care of their people.

You know this country use to take care or at least try to take care of it's people. It was done in a capitalist way, where anyone who worked hard, didn't need the Gov. but were able to take care of themselves. Now we are moving toward a sociality where no one can make it without the Gov. telling them what to do. It's very sad, because this country was started without a king, or queen.

If other countries want to live that way, it's great in my book, but that is not what this country is all about.

People better wake up, and speak up.
