Desertion decline since 9/11

A short note on military desertion in the USA Today deserves notice: "At least 8,000 members of the all-volunteer U.S. military have deserted since the Iraq war began, Pentagon records show, although the overall desertion rate has plunged since the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001."

If you want to understand why this is a non-story, I refer you to the always readable ’Generation Why?’

More Anti-Troop Bias
"There were 9,581 deserters in 2001 alone... 2 years BEFORE the Iraq war began and then 2 years AFTER the start of the war, there were only 3,456...."

I had the pleasure of seeing a deserter in jail on charges of AWOL.
