U.S. should not make mandatory draft because your risking your life, government will make 5 million new enemy, and person who force to be in the military will do poorly then extended their years.

Umm... First of all, I do not know you. Second, I have no idea why you have challenged me. Third, I am not American, so the debate topic is irrelevant to me. Fourth, I have no idea how you came to the conclusion that I was in favor of the conscription. But I will accept the challenge nevertheless. Ok, here we go...

"U.S. should not make mandatory draft because your [sic] risking your life [...]"

I'm going to invoke the value of gratitude here.

Main Entry: grat�i�tude
Pronunciation: \ˈgra-tə-ˌt�d, -ˌty�dFunction: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French or Medieval Latin; Anglo-French, from Medieval Latin gratitudo, from Latin gratus grateful
Date: 1523
: the state of being grateful : thankfulness

Source: http://www.merriam-webster.com...

You can look up "thankfulness" if you want, but I'll assume you know the definition of that word as well. It is quite obvious that going to war is a life-threatening risk, however any grateful person will think about what their country has done for him or her. You have a roof above your head and your necessary 2000 calories per day, unlike the vast majority of the world. Before outright refusing to serve your nation, think about the 87 countries in the world where the average yearly salary for one person is below 5000USD (http://www.nationsonline.org...).

"[...] [sic] government will make 5 million new enemy [sic] [...]"

That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. If you're referring to Americans who don't want the draft, then please provide a source to verify that claim. If you're referring to the belligerents, then please explain how the United States would make "new" enemies with a draft. To begin with, the enemy probably won't even know that they are facing conscripts, and even if they did, what difference would that make?

"[...] and [sic] person who force [sic] to be in the military will do poorly then extended [sic] their years [...]"

What if a country doesn't have a professional army large enough for the situation?
