I wish every person in America like him would leave, too. Only before he has sworn an oath and the government (read: you and I) has spent a fortune training the weasel. A man is only as good as his word and this man's word is meaningless. Let Canada keep him, but if he ever sets foot in the US again, his fate should be death.

Admittedly I know nothing of American Military Law someone correct me, but isn’t desertion in the time of war punishable by death?

Leave him there.
Having to live in canada is punishment enough. I would rather face the military prisons here than suffer under their disturbing government and decrepid military. He has increased the IQ of both countries in running away.
Its punishment enough that the snivelling coward has fled his country in time of trouble. If he was brought back here he would only demoralize the troops.
Probably high on drugs and suffering from gender confusion issues as well. the canadians can have him, he may fit in better there...

I don't know Canadian laws, but if he happens to marry a Canadian, does that automatically give him citizenship? I'm not certain how/if that would affect his deserter status.

What, exactly, was the oath that he took? Does anyone have the exact wording of that oath that they can post here?
When did he enlist? Was it before the warmongers in the White House and on Capital Hill (no, that's not a misspelling) lied to Congress and the nation in order to get us into the present mess in the Middle East? Yeah, yeah. Some of you say we're there. Doesn't matter how we got there. We're there. So, for that idiotic reason alone, we have to "finish" it. What utter bulk# you spew about by saying that. GIGO
Why is a violation of oath by a footsoldier considered more heinous than that committed by those who are (mis) leading this nation? You forgive the latter so easily. Blame and bring justive to the leaders who commit malfeasance in office before you entertain a negative thought or utter a derogatory word about the footsoldier. Or at least do or say something to bring those leaders to account for their unlawful and evil words and deeds.
For God's sake, many of you complained more loudly about Bill Clinton's sexcapades in the oval office. Now people are being killed. For a lie.
Personally, I hope Canada grants this young man asylum.
