U.K. bringing back mandatory military service as Europe prepares for WAR with Russia
By Ethan Huff // Jun 03, 2024

In order to revive the "national spirit" – and to keep the Ukraine money laundering machine going for a little bit longer – United Kingdom Prime Minister Rishi Sunak suddenly wants to make it mandatory for Brits to serve in the U.K. military.

Should the Conservative Party remain in power after the general election, currently scheduled for July, Sunak is planning to re-introduce mandatory national service, also known as conscription, at a cost of around £2.5 billion ($3.19 billion) per year.

Under the new rules, all 18-year-olds in Great Britain would be required to either join the military full time or volunteer one weekend per month at community organizations such as law enforcement or the National Health Service (NHS), the U.K.'s government-run health care system.

Compulsory military service, Sunak argues, would "provide life-changing opportunities for our young people," this according to a manifesto pledge that Sunak released to the media.

"This is a great country, but generations of young people have not had the opportunities or experience they deserve and there are forces trying to divide our society in this increasingly uncertain world," Sunak added craftily, making it sound as though it is a privilege to fight banker wars.

"I have a clear plan to address this and secure our future. I will bring in a new model of National Service to create a shared sense of purpose among our young people and a renewed sense of pride in our country."

Sunak says that young Brits can learn "real world skills" in the British military, as well as "do new things and contribute to their community and our country."

"As a father," he added in a speech, "I look forward to my own two daughters doing their National Service. I think they will find it a rewarding experience."

Sunak developed mandatory service plot in secret

If re-elected, the Conservative Party plans to create a new Royal Commission to finalize Sunak's vision of creating a "National Service Program," a pilot of which would be launched in September 2025.

The only people who knew about Sunak's mandatory conscription plan before it was publicly unveiled were his closest advisers. To everyone else, it was a big secret that is only now, just weeks before the election, seeing the light of day.

The document accompanying Sunak's announcement is 40 pages in length. It states that expanding the U.K. Armed Forces is necessary in the face of "the growing international threats posed by countries such as Russia and China." In other words, the U.K. needs more bodies to funnel into the Ukraine meat grinder so Volodymyr Zelensky can purchase a new mega-yacht.

Opposition leaders in the U.K. are outraged that Sunak would introduce such a thing, especially at such an enormously high cost as many Brits struggle just to make ends meet amid record inflation.

"This is not a plan," an opposition Labour Party spokesperson said, accusing the Conservatives of crashing the British economy while cutting troop numbers. "It's a review which could cost billions and is only needed because the Tories hollowed out the armed forces to their smallest size since Napoleon."

"Our armed forces were once the envy of the world. This Conservative government has cut troop numbers and is planning more cuts to the size of the Army," added Liberal Democrat defense spokesman Richard Foord.

The British Army has been around for 364 years, and for most of that time it has been an all-volunteer force. Conscription was only introduced during World War I and World War II, with National Service officially ending in 1960.

It seems as though there's no way to avoid World War III at this point. Learn more at WWIII.news.
