Human rights and Turkey zero, this is a very disturbing article, particularly the young TC conscript who they tortured and killed in prison by his own "people", very sad.

Turkey will never become strong if not abolish the obligatory military service.

All modern and strong countries have army 100% professional-voluntary.

Neobyzantine you do not know what you are talking about!

Obligatory military service is so that the turkish men learn the absolute basics of being a soldier!! So when a war breaks out, they have a good base to rely on.
Nonetheless most european countries had this too; it was e.g. After 1994 that belgium 'abolished' it because they had no need (britain is obliged to jump in for belgium -> as they stated in 1830 to defend belgium's sovereign?

To come back on the Turkish matter; the real military leaders and soldiers are professionals, being paid for what they do!

I'm advising you to check different sources before replying with short sentences that have absolutely no arguments that can fund what you said.

Kind regards

Militatism not offer defence power.

The much soldiers not give defence power.

The obligatory military service is bad for the defence, and is fasism.

The young humans are not slaves.

If the country not have freedom, then the citizens are against the State, and all minorities want to be independent.

Militarism, nationalism, racism, no freedom = Poverty and tragedy.
