No, military service is a privilege not a right.

Everyone has the right to defend their own property from invaders, to the death if necessary, but no one has the right to serve in the military.

and for you or anyone to compare the two as being the same just screams insanity on your part.
so unless you dont see a pedophile as being a criminal then it is you that fails your burden of rebuttal....
Except for the fact that the age of consent is widely variant depending on where you go in the world, so it's not always a crime depending on your location. Plus, there are groups out there who are looking to abolish it completely:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_consent_reform
Quote:
Paedophile advocacy groups
During the late 1950s to early 1990s, several paedophile membership organisations advocated lowering or abolishing age of consent laws[19][20][21][22] to legalize sexual activities involving an adult and a child (something often considered as child sexual abuse[23][24]). As one of their arguments to lower or abolish the age of consent, members of paedophile advocacy groups promoted their belief that children are psychologically capable of consenting to sexual interactions with adults[25] (although this opinion is contrary to legal and scientific consensus [26][27]), and they often portrayed themselves as fighting for the right of children to engage in what the activists consider to be consensual sex with adults.[22][25] Some activists tried to link their goals with those of the early LGBT social movements, but in the course of time those movements universally rejected this linkage.[19][28][29][30]
The age of consent reform efforts of paedophile advocacy groups such as the Danish Pedophile Association and the North American Man/Boy Love Association did not gain any public support[19][22][28][31][32] and today those groups that have not dissolved have only minimal membership and have ceased their activities other than through a few websites.[22][32][33][34] Beginning in the 1990s, public focus on and disapproval of paedophilia resulted in more stringent legislation and stronger criminal penalties regarding child pornography, child sexual abuse, and use of the internet to facilitate these offenses.[35][36][37]
They try to use the exact same arguments as the Gay Rights movement, but haven't gained any traction. However, if morality is really just a matter of societal norms, then we've see how quickly that can change: in the 1920s, it wasn't extremely uncommon to see adult men marrying girls as young as 7-years old; as recently as the 1980s, an actor 'coming out of the closet' as a homosexual usually spelled the end of that actor's career; in many ancient cultures, rape and child molestation wasn't even considered a serious crime.

Now, before you try to twist my words, then understand that I consider pedophilia and child molestation to be the worst form of sexual immorality and I believe that it is an offense punishable by death, without exception (as long as there is physical evidence of the act). However, if you we are going to allow popular opinion to dictate our morality, then you need to understand that society changes and acts that we consider reprehensible now might be considered normal and natural within just a few decades.

This is the ultimate consequence of moral relativism and why we, as human beings, are not qualified to dictate our own morality and why we must stick to GOD's standard alone.
