Perhaps. Then again...

A serious military cost a serious amount of money! If we want back to conspriction the size of the Bundeswehr will have to be seriously be increased which cost a serious amount of money.

Did i mentioned it cost a serious amount of money?

The budget part for the Bundeswehr it to small for the current size and they habe conscript a large percentes of every age group or the constution court will shut it down.

The discussion about the conscription in Germany is not only driven by military needs !
Already until seven years ago, a lot of conscripts did community service, instead of military
service. And nursing homes and similar facilities were quite dependent from that pool of
cheap staff. So suspension of conscription (it wasn't a complete abolition !) has driven the
costs for geriatric care (the main user of that staff) and other civil services, making it at least
easier to start that discussion now ... in the "Sommerloch".
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

Not saying it is only driven by the military, these markets for conscription will be looking for teens and twenties because that is where the majority of the need of suitable target organisations will want to go.  |Young people who are a little more malleable and tbh, where conscription can make most impact on the unemployment numbers.  The military is unlikely to agree on conscription having gone through much pain and reduction, it is just not feasable to go back to it.  Instructor levels will be quite low and will take a lot of investment to grow fit for purpose.
