Canada’s cleaning house today, and its about time.
First, two US deserters have had their appeal to be heard by the Supreme Court of Canada rejected and will be returned to the US to face court-martials and whatever personal hell is due to cowards. I have no sympathy for these spineless yellow fellows, and I hope that we find and deport the other 200 deserters that are thought to be here soon.
According to the linked story, Jeremy Hinzman and Brandon Hughey the two cowards in question, face between 1 and 5 years imprisonment if they returned to the US. Well, they’ve been in Canada for 3 years – think about it – had they stayed and taken their lumps, they’d probably be out of jail, free to live their worthless lives.
Thoughts and support go to those brave troops that went on deployment in the place of these deserters, I hope that they did not have to pay a high price for their courage and loyalty – two traits that are missing in these losers.
An aside: I have no time for the War Resisters Support Campaign (find the WRSC link yourself, I won’t send them traffic), they enable the fleeing deserters and try to legitimize them with the use of the word ‘resistor’ rather than ‘deserter’.
Note that these cowards volunteered to serve before they decided they were too afraid to go to war. Dressing it up pretty and pretending to object because the UN(!) didn’t sanction the invasion is pure evasion. Does this in turn mean that the desertion-enablers at the WRSC support the Afghanistan campaign because it was sanctioned by the UN? I bet you can guess the answer to that.
Back to the second story of Canada’s house cleaning: Karl Schreiber just lost his appeal to stay in Canada and will be deported back to Germany to face criminal charges there. Of course, this guy has been in the news recently because the Globe and Mail has been trying to run the story of Brian Mulroney’s alleged malfeasance all over again as cover for the continuing disaster that is Stephane Dion.
