Is This Right ?
« on: September 09, 2006, 19:08:26 »
Isaac Schrodinger faces deportation to Pakistan where he is considered an apostate. At the sametime Canada virtually has extended refugee status to US Army deserters. Is this right ?

If they are claiming refugee status they would go through the same process.

how do you mean? Define "right".

Do you mean "Is This Accurate?" In which case, yes.

Or, do you mean "Is This Proper?" In which case, no.

Right meaning proper. Seem's like a travesty in the making.

well, it's obviously his fault. He's the one who decided to convert from Islam, and become a lackey of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. Therefore, he's a legitimate target. If he'd had the common sense to remain a Muslim, become a radical fundamentalist, and immediately go on Welfare, demanding that Canadian society change to suit his preferences, he'd be able to remain in Canada, and live comfortably.

I stand to be corrected, but I don't think any of the 20-odd Yank deserters who've applied for refugee status here have gotten a panel or court to say, "yeah, you are a refugee" yet.  In March, Fed Court dismissed the appeal of a US paratrooper medic who suddenly turned Quaker:

but they're still appealing up the chain.

If these guys want out of army service, why don't they just take the easy route and kiss a sailor in front of their COs?
That which does not kill me has made a grave tactical error.
