Sailor Charged With Crime for Refusal to Ship Out

A sailor from New York who refused to board his ship headed for the Persian Gulf because of his opposition to the Iraq war has been charged with a criminal offense.   When arrested, he wore a t-shirt saying "Like a Cabinet Member, I resign." Also last week, Canada denied political asylum to a U.S. deserter opposed to the war. [Jack Chin]
