Do we fear invasion, or what is the army for exactly? I would rather see the army  integrated with the police force, to help fight crime.

Agreed in principle, but the relevant governing rules (Constitution and legislation) do not permit it.  Military personnel would need to resign from their posts and seek employment with the police services.  The police can request military support in cases of large-scale civil disturbance but the military’s powers are quite limited.

I voted no. We are not about to be invaded. This will not always be the case maybe but for now we do not need an army. As with almost every thing else in this country, the government stuffs it up. To be effective you need a private army.Private arnies of cource is a big no - no. So "no" we do not need an army and we can not afford an army.
