your heart's on the left: wikileaks proves iraq war resisters were right

From your heart's on the left:
For 6 years US Iraq War resisters have been coming to Canada to seek refuge, and the Pentagon vindicates their reasons: they don’t want to take part in the daily widespread practice of killing civilians and ignoring torture. That they volunteered and signed a contract is completely irrelevant. The Nuremberg principles demand soldiers refuse participation in war crimes, and wikileaks proves that this is the daily experience in Iraq. Furthermore, the majority of Canadians and their MPs support war resisters.

The only rational conclusion from wikileaks is for the US to finally end its occupation of Iraq, and for Canada to welcome war resisters.
