Oh this ticks me off. Doubt we could get more blatant in trying to slant things than calling Hinzman a war dodger. He is a deserter and a coward, someone lacking the moral courage of a California politician.
This guy with his wife decamped from his military post the night before he was supposed to be deployed to Iraq if I remember the earlier stories. Now before a Canadian court he says he feared anything he did in Iraq would be a war crime. The only crime here is you pissant spoiled coward is, you deserted your friends. The possibility you might get a boo-boo or *gasp* get killed, you ran north to Canada; letting your friends run risks that you are afraid of. How many of them were trusting you to cover their backs? I am glad you ran and showed how wide that yellow stripe is where your spine should be, instead of folding up and letting your buddies die due to your cowardice. I just hope the Canadian justice system also see you for the coward you are and ship you back to the United States to face the charges of desertion.
