Resisting an illegal war

Sgt. Matthis Chiroux
, who served in the Army until being honorably discharged last summer after over four years of service in Afghanistan, Japan, Europe and the Phillipines, today publicly announced his intention to refuse orders to deploy to Iraq.


Resisting the backdoor draft or as I see it, involuntary servitude.

IVAW's post finishes with a request for donations:
