Sweden Is Now Conscripting
« on: March 02, 2017, 20:07:52 »
Conscripting has been initiated after a 7 year break.It also includes women.

OPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) -- Sweden's left-leaning government instituted a military draft for both men and women Thursday because of what its defense minister called a deteriorating security environment in Europe and around Sweden.

Sweden abolished compulsory military service for men in 2010 because there were enough volunteers to meet its military needs. It has never had a military draft for women.
