The Untold Story of Dissenting Soldiers

As the occupation of Iraq nears the four year mark, the stress on our military is really starting to show and the human cost is getting harder and harder to hide.

Last weekend, SilentPatriot posted this segment from 60 Minutes on the GI's who petitioned Congress to stop the war and Nicole has posted extensively about Lt. Ehren Watada's refusal to report for duty in Iraq.

Little by little, we're hearing stories that have managed to go unnoticed such as the 500th American amputee, and all the problems at Walter Reed Hospital. Spiegel Online brings light to yet another inconvenient truth. Our soldiers are finding ways to get out of this unjust war and some are choosing to go AWOL at the rate of more than 5 per day.
