It was 20 years ago today. I worked as a military instructor at a local high school. This was mandatory for boys in 9th and 10th grade. 2 hours in class a week, and after the first year at the end of May 10 days of field training with living in the camp (all kids of the school district participated and we used to occupy a school building). This was not a joke. Boys learned AK-47 and could take it apart in half a minute with their eyes closed, they shoot AK-47, learned grenades, dug trenches, knew how to detect and measure radiation, detect chemical weapon and determine the type, learned how to protect themselves in case you, Americans will drop the nuke on them. The kids were told that you, the Americans, were the danger, and that they needed to be ready. And they were trained... 20 years ago... Worlds apart...
