I hope we have more deserters, fewer suicides....I'd rather they run away than kill themselves....17 per day? This war is an unspeakable travesty. Bush should stand before us and shoot himself.

A tragedy! They may have signed up versus being drafted, but..... this is an immoral war fought for profit. My heart goes out to all of the troops.

I remember reading when we went into Iraq, that Canada would NOT harbor defectors. That was way back. I don't know where they're supposed to go, England maybe? Australia?
Criminal war, and the nay-sayers are portrayed as the criminals.
