Due North: In Vietnam, it was draft dodgers and conscientious objectors who headed to Canada to avoid service. In the neo-cons' Iraq debacle 35 years later, it's the soldiers who are hightailing it north. According to the Telegraph, some 5,500 GIs have deserted so far. And since you won't hear the figure on the nightly news, 1,356 Americans have died in Iraq so far and 9,844 have been wounded in action.
