American Army soldiers are deserting and fleeing to Canada rather than fight in Iraq, rekindling memories of the thousands of draft-dodgers who flooded north to avoid service in Vietnam.
An estimated 5,500 men and women have deserted since the invasion of Iraq, reflecting Washington's growing problems with troop morale.
I can't really condone deserting, since everyone in the military knew what they were getting into when they signed up ... especially if they voted for Bush, but I can certainly understand not wanting to be meat for the grinder.
It's really kind of amazing to think we were in Vietnam for a decade. That would put us out of Iraq in oh ... 2013.
