Shades of Vietnam: deserting to Canada

Some soldiers would rather desert than return to Iraq : Vancouver Indymedia
CBS did a piece on this recently, so it's getting some mainstream media coverage. A friend who lives in the American south, where most of our soldiers come from, tells me that the local news outlets are reporting on desretions. Hard to tell how big this is. The stress on guardsmen in particular is terrible.
