The Great White Up distinguishes between fled conscripts and volunteers with second thoughts:
A U.S. Army deserter who fled to Canada three years ago was deported July 15 to the United States, marking the first time a resister to the war in Iraq has been removed by Canadian authorities…
During the Vietnam War, up to 90,000 Americans successfully won refuge in Canada, most of them to avoid the military draft.
Boot ‘em all to the curb as quickly as possible once they are “repatriated.” They are scarcely worth the processing time and effort of those who know how to keep their oaths.
