Maintaining our defensive capability with less burden on male citizens

Here is a new approach towards maintaining the defense capability of Singapore by requiring male citizens to serve full time national service for 12 months and to be in active reserves for 5 years only. 

The capability can be maintained by using the savings in the training cost to recruit an additional 20,000 professional soldiers and still have sufficient reservists to be operationally ready and to be called up in times of need.

It won't happen under existing PAP which is out to max profits & minimize expenses.

Having conscription allows for a steady supply of cheap labor & indoctrination into sheep.
