Quote from: alexgv1 on March 19, 2012, 11:18:20 PMTurkey is a prospering country at the moment and has actually grown too big for the EU. Still having economic growth in these times. Yes they afford good military budget like any prosperous nation but most of the army are conscripts.

Quote from: JumboShrimp on March 21, 2012, 01:32:06 AMSpeaking of Turkey in EU, I think every country has to approve a new member. I have a feeling that Austria will exercise a veto here...
Quote from: Jona L. on March 19, 2012, 11:33:13 PMIsraels army is 100% conscripts, as every person must serve 6 yrs (women 4 (I think)) in the army and after that can be conscripted any time Israel needs them.
