American Army soldiers are deserting and fleeing to Canada rather than fight in Iraq, rekindling memories of the thousands of draft-dodgers who flooded north to avoid service in Vietnam. An estimated 5,500 men and women have deserted since the invasion of Iraq, reflecting Washington’s growing problems with troop morale.
Note – it’s the morale that’s the problem. Again, seeing this as a PR problem – not that the whole war was an illegal military action.
