Sounds like a plan, seeing as they started it in the first place.
I like this idea :)
In the UK most politicians have either been to public school or Oxford/Cambridge.... cadets etc play a big part in these establishments..... they are all warmongers to a man/woman. Why not send them to do something useful like help out in a 3rd World orphanage or a soup kitchen?
Good idea, but what happens if the Prime minister goes and get's shot? It will stop people becoming politicians. It will mean you have to be a politician, so you can keep up with the army. If all our politicians get shot we'll have to hold more elections which wastes money if the people we elect are going to be deployed to another country and try to run ours from there and still avoid getting killed at the same time.
In the early 1970's there was a TV commercial that showed two men about to duel. The voice-over said, "What if only our leaders had to fight?"
Such simple truths.
I'd include the rich people too who never seem to go to war,
All politicians must serve in infantry - not some - all.
We would elect more warriors then.
Starting at the top (commander-in-chief) but they must get the pay a soldier gets.
Thanks for BA
