And that is your opinion which I disagree with. And no, I don't think my opinion is fact on it either, just my opinion.I disagree, I think there would still be a problem with the trade, but at least he wouldn't have given the optics of aiding our enemies, while holding a military criminal in higher regard than a decorated honorable solider.
Again, no it isn't. Bergdahl left because he felt the war was immoral. The Iraqi Army left because they were afraid.You're building a strawman argument here...I never said we should send US troops in...But, yes, it is the same damned thing....One man or one hundred. The result on moral, and military cohesiveness is the same.
Where did I say desertion it ok? I even stated it should be investigated and if necessary a trial. How you get that I think desertion is ok is beyond me.So desertion is ok as long as it isn't whole units at a time?
