This was a moving event and like Tom Hayden I agree that the circumstances of Rodney's case should be judged on their own merit. This is a fine young man who I am honoured to call friend. He is no criminal, certainly no coward and is caught by an illegal action of the United States Government to send him back to Iraq to fight an unjustifiable if not, illegal war.

Rodney is worthy of every peace loving person's active support for freedom from American oppression.

Instead of calling members of the military "heroes" and "brave men and women in uniform" how about we start to respect the trues heroes like Rodney Watson, who had the incredible courage to say "no" to war? It is outrageous that he isn't given all the honours and freedom he so rightly deserves. To get more info please visit http://essaydaddy.com/.
