I feel sorry for this man and his family. What ever happened to people being able to be conciencious objectors? And I know I probably didn't spell that right... I've thought about going into the military in the medical field, but I know I would have had a similar problem to what he had, so I won't. And I do agree with him. We got Saddam out, now it's past time we got out. We can't force peace in that area of the world. It's the "holy land" for too many religions and they won't share and play nice with eachother. There's no sence in this country continuing to throw our solder's lives at this. Even if someone were to nuke the whole area into the ground and make it a huge crater/lake/ocean, they would STILL fight over "where our holy land used to be".

When you join the military you go through miles and miles of red tape, they ask you many many times if you are a conciencious objector, and if you are then they would let you join, thats the way it should be, he went awal, he's a pansy, in the military you tough it out and move on, you can get out of the army if you want, you get a dishonerable discharge but they will let you out after a couple months, the was has not stopped, it will probably never stop, I got it, but being in the military is an honorable thing not a burden, we willingly joined not drafter

i never thought of it that way being the "holy land" and you may have a point there.. going awal and just running away bc he has to go to war is cowardly. and for that he deserves no respect or honor. he is a piece of shit. all the soldiers over there fighting and risking there lives for us n this piece of shit wont even go to help his fallen comrades. maybe even some of his friends. not to mention his own platoon.
