I am not with the idea of leaving one's duty. Specially when in regards to serving in the armed forces. However, how can I balance that with my desire to stand up for what is just? I believe in making statements and standing up for what is morally right. The Iraq war is immoral and illegal. So when soldiers take that stance knowing they serve the country and leaving their duty because of a morality of the issue, questions the leadership of this country's generals and civilians in light of such a high number of desertions.
