The Bush Push to Find Vietnam Deserters

I know... I know... any push by the BushCo admin to hunt down Vietnam deserters when Bush himself was AWOL (scroll down to see the reward money offered to prove otherwise) is beyond the pale. But this take on it provides good insight into why it may be kicked up now: "The military is hunting down Vietnam era deserters in an effort to set an example to deter the growing number of Iraq War military resisters who are fleeing to Canada. Since the Iraq war began, “at least 8,000” members of the volunteer military have deserted. While the military denies that it is taking aggressive action to deter Iraq War resisters, the facts indicate otherwise." Of course the facts indicate otherwise... business as usual in BushCo world. Besides we have Iran in our crosshairs (for real...Bill O'Reilly says: "In a sane world, every country would unite against Iran and blow it off the face of the earth. That would be the sane thing to do.") Hey, if the great wise Bill O'Loofah says we gotta go, then they gotta scare our military members to be cannon fodder for that, too.
