Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just out of curiosity, what exactly did you say?

IMO going to Iraq is an act of bravery, tempered by the (reasonable) fear of what refusing to go would entail. Refusing to go to Iraq also requires courage, but again qualified by an understandable fear of the risks that being a soldier in Iraq bring.

And for those out there reading - any knowledge of what the actual consequences have been for those soldiers who have refused to go to Iraq? Has it been just dishonorable discharge, or short jail terms, or longer ones?
