ANTI-WAR SAILOR GOES AWOL FROM TSUNAMI AID MISSION [01/03 02:35 PM]

The perfect irony of this story leaves me green with envy that the guys at Powerline noticed it first:

Reader Patrick Charles makes a great point: "One of the ships helping is the U.S.S. Bonhomme Richard, an amphibious assault vessel carrying U.S. Marines. This is the same ship that [critical phrase deleted] Navy Petty Officer Third Class and darling of the anti-war left, Pablo Paredes, refused to board back in Decemeber because his ship was aiding in the "illegal" war in Irag. This sailor went AWOL back in December and staged a little media party in San Diego back in December. This is a wonderful irony."

Yes it is. The Bonhomme Richard joined the effort in Sumatra today, and will depart for Sri Lanka later this week.


Boy, doesn't Pablo feel proud today? His protest against the "illegal" war ensured he would contribute absolutely nothing to the U.S. Navy's tsunami relief efforts. Way to go!

Hadn't heard of that guy. What happened to him? During the 'Nam, war resistance like that would buy you 5 years in the USDB (i.e. the military prison at Ft. Leavenworth).
