globeandmail.com: Canada to deport U.S. war deserter
Hopefully they'll toss him out of the plane on the ride back.
What kind of mentally retarded individual are you, Toro?
The guy refused to participate in an illegal war of aggression.
Wrong as usual. The war is totally legal, it was approved by the Congress and continues to be funded by said Congress. Now the retard would be people like you claiming the war is illegal.
This guy took an oath to serve in the military and follow direct orders by his superiors. He was well aware of the risks he took while signing up to be in the military. Everyone who's had a history class knows that if you're in the military, you may be sent to fight in a war in which you don't agree with...I.E. Vietnam. IMO, if you join the military, you are signing your life over to serve the country in whatever you are called to do.
The military clause does allow one to refuse ILLEGAL orders. The problem being NONE have been given.
If the guy actual were against the war because he thinks it is illegal he would have STAYED in the military, refused to deploy and DEMANDED a trial so he could make his case. He is just another person that did not want to do what he agreed to do, was paid to do and trained to do.
That Lt in Washington did that. I do not agree with any of that, BUT that is the right way to claim it is illegal. Not running away and trying to avoid what you agreed to do.
A well-off kind.
Fair enough...I wasn't aware of that. In the same breaht, I don't agree with it either....
If the guy had been drafted I might have some sympathy for him, but he joined of his own accord, and now he must lie in the bed he made.
Soon it will be all part of the NAU!
