Rapid City Deserter Coming Home for Justice

Deserter Jeremy Hinzman is coming home from Canada to face justice for deserting the military, according to the Rapid City Journal.

He must leave Canada by September 23, according to his deportation order.

Hinzman, who is among an estimated 200 resisters in Canada, said he would face a court martial if he returns to the U.S., the likelihood of jail time and a dishonourable discharge from the military, which would show up on his record as a felony conviction.

He said he still believes he and other deserters did the right thing by coming to Canada.

"Iraq was an unjust war based on false pretences, and every soldier who refused to fight probably saved a lot of lives," he said.

I guess that's what you get for drinking the MoveOn.org Koolaid. The Iraq invasion was justified on multiple levels for multiple reasons, and it doesn't take a genius to figure that out; just a mind unclouded by liberal self-loathing.

Those who join the military just for a college education, without regard for what you may be called to do, should take heed. The United States military isn't some cushy government program that exists to fulfill your material and self-actualization needs. It exists to defend this country.

Hinzman is about to come home and learn that the hard way.
