Now, I have an opinion or two on this, and they are quite strong. First, Ive gotta say, I DO NOT agree with the war in Iraq, I think it's stupid and pointless. That being said, I think that people who desert the army should be shot. I mean, honestly, why on earth did you join the army in the first place, if you arent willing to fulfill the job that you signed up for? Did you think the Army was a fun camp where you learn to shoot rifles, and that there would never be a war? You live in AMERICA, for Gods sake! Dubya is your president! If the Americans werent blowing someone up, they would be lost. You see, when you sign up to be in the Military, you are commiting yourself to do your "duty", to follow orders. If you didnt want to go to war, then you shouldnt have joined the military, right? The military is not one of those things that you can do when it's fun, and drop like a hot potato the minute the going gets rough...and they make that clear when you first enlist.
Anyways, I think that Canada should not let American deserters shelter here. Every single person in the american military chose to be there, they should have known better. Now, if Dubya decided on a draft, that is something else entirely.
