Fox News Military Pundit Calls For Soldier’s Death

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Military, Partisan Hacks, Video

Good lord…



So if you desert you should die? I understand being brought up on charges if you leave and then lie about it, which is possible what’s going on here, but the last time I heard anything about a court martial for deserting, the punishment didn’t include death.

There are few things I hate, but this type of nonsense is one of them.

Ugh.

    If you desert in a war zone, yes, the punishment for that is often death.

    Whether this soldier deserted, and whether he merits execution for doing so, is luckily in the hands of wiser, more experienced individuals than myself.

    (1) without authority goes or remains absent from his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to remain away therefrom permanently;
    (2) quits his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to avoid hazardous duty or to shirk important service; or
    (3) without being regularly separated from one of the armed forces enlists or accepts an appointment in the same or another one of the armed forces without fully disclosing the fact that he has not been regularly separated, or enters any foreign armed service except when authorized by the United States Note: This provision has been held not to state a separate offense by the United States Court of Military Appeals in United States v.
