Hello! After a nice chill-out session for a week, we made a quick return today and delved into argumentative essay, analyzing one about conscription in our white book. I asked you what you thought about it and you came up with very good arguments. Well, having spent some time on the net, I have learned that Sweden abolished compulsory military service on July 1, 2010 and Germany is planning to end it next year, while some other countries still stick to it. As you all know this is now a hotly-debated issue in Türkiye, too. Anyway, here's an article for you to read and comment on.
