Which kind of army or service would you choose?  

It seems to be an easy decision to choose between peace or war. Sadly, a policy of peace is not given in the biggest part of the world.
Today in Austria people were given the chance to choose between a professional army or military service. But the real alternative to war an arms was not an option. See http://www.care2.com/news/member/561361471/3518257

However, a quite small movement created an alternativ ballot to the public opinion poll which had a 3rd option, which was an unarmed organisation that provides disaster management und public services. Sadly this was not the real ballot and therefore doesn't count as opinion.

What would you prefer as policy of the world?


1. Which kind of army or service would you choose? [required]
Professional Army
Unarmed professionals for public services
Compulsory military service
None of the above
