    Canada deports U.S. deserter who opposes Iraq War

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 15 (Reuters) - Canada deported on Tuesday the first of some 200 Americans who deserted the U.S. military and sought refugee status to protest against the Iraq War.

    Robin Long, 25, was removed a day after a Federal Court judge in Vancouver rejected his claim that he would suffer irreparable harm if returned to the United States. He fled across the border in 2005 as his army tank unit was preparing to deploy to Iraq.

    The Canada Border Services Agency confirmed Long's removal, but declined to give other details, citing privacy laws. Long's refugee claim had already been rejected and he could not appeal Monday's court ruling.

    1. The Canadian government should be fucking ashamed of itself.

    NT!
    Voluntary military, DUmbass. If the deserter didn't want to join, he sure as hell didn't have to.

    But I have a question on this. Will our government do any thing to punish any of these cowards? To date Lt Ehren Watada has not been incarcerated for refusing to deploy and he has become a poster boy for the far left loons. Way I see it, we don't need 200 more poster boys for those cowards.
