I agree Triumph. The flip side is, many men do not want to serve on the front lines either. They have no choice. I totally respect what you are saying, a certain part of your gender pushed for this so called equal status. Where women are treated as men, they also sell themselves out by not really being treated as equals when women are not in the draft. So let me ask this? If why was there not a strong support from people like you, against women on the front line. I do not mean you personally. Why did the womens lib win?

Regardless of her sex, sexual preference, race or religion she is a deserter.

She deserves the big chicken dinner.

AND STOP SENDING OUR CHILDREN TO THESE SENSELESS WARS....SEND PEOPLE OVER 25 MY GOD. SEND THE NO GOOD FOR NOTHING TROUBLE MAKERS ON CAPITAL HILL. SEND THOSE SENILE OLD PRESIDENTS AND SAVE US TAXES ON THEIR RETIREMENTS. SEND THOSE MOTHERS ON DEATH ROW. SEND THE CHILDREN OF THE SUPER-RICH. WHY NOT? ITS THEIR WAR.

We are going to loose all these wars anyway because we DO NOT BELONG THERE!

Good for her!

If it takes 10 months in jail as a traitor;so what. Look at the president and bidenut. Talk about traitors. At least she has a conscious and will be alive with all her limbs after her sentence. As well as some sanity left. Hopefully.

Iraq has messed up enough of our young people. A horrible money-war. All of them should desert. This country doesn't take care of our Veterans anyway and never has.

And to all you Fookers who hate her for this=you can simply go to He---ll. No one ever sent the Senator sons to Canada for life when they dodged the draft for Vietnam.

You are right triumph, not everyone is cut out to serve in the military. This is not a male versus female issue though. Many men like itisnteasybeingfree, don't have it in them either.

As a woman I just want to say that I did not fight for the right to fight in combat. I don't think I belong there. I don't want to be there. I have no desire, no will, no guts to go off to war and kill or be killed. Not all women wanted this. SOME women wanted it and good for them. But I don't have it in me and I do not know many women who do have it in them. It all sounds so lovely to be equal to men but the truth is, they excel in certain areas and women excel in others. We ARE different.

Ok, all the womens lib people can now bash me......

You just can't ban someone from living in the US and tell them it's okay to live in another country. Canada all ready denied refugee status and residency is another issue all together. She deserves what any other military deserter receives under the law. If the shoes fits then wear it. Equal opportunity to each and every American despite gender, race or religion.

ItIsntEasyBeingFree, you are correct. The got the right to fight in combat, now my question is. Why do they NOT have to sign up for the military draft like all men have to? It is a clear cut case of sexual discrimination. Certain people made this into a womans rights issue, yelled about woman deserving the right to fight on the front lines. Ok, fine, let them, if they want treated like the men, let them. 100%, all 18 year old women shsould sign up for the draft, just like men do.

I don't blame anyone for not wanting to serve a second tour in Iraq. It was a war based on Bush & Cheney lies about WMD's. Those two NeoCon scumbags should have been brought up on charges long ago plus they destroyed our US economy conducting their war on a credit card that wasn't paid for. This young lady's desertion problem is just part of the fallout.

Why didnt she quit after her '06 deployment if she didn't agree with the war in Iraq. Ban her permanently from the US. Let her live in Canada.

Women want their role in combat! They got it! Throw the book at her! Put her in Leavenworth with her male criminal soldiers!
