The IRS doesn't care how long you stay overseas as long as you file all required paperwork.

Bingo. Depending on the country, if you remain there for 6 months or greater you may be required to pay taxes or even serve in their military.
I know that if you stay in Greece for 6 months or longer that you're potentially viewed as a resident and then you're subject to serving for the Greek military.

You have to be of Greek origin or descent (as determined by the Greek Gov't) to be drafted into the Greek military. If you are going to visit your Uncle Spiros, you can get your draft papers shortly after you walk off the plane. If you are just some schmo overstaying your welcome, no, you will not end up in the Greek military.

No country is going to draft some random foreigner into their military, I mean what do you know about the guy -- 1) he's a foreigner, 2) he cannot figure out basic rules such as the length of time he's allowed to stay in a foreign country. Doesn't sound like good soldier material to me, given that the top 2 desirable attributes for a soldier are 1) be patriotic, and 2) follow orders.
