Now watch the right wing slime him. http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=080516144757.0ds7otes&show_article=1 US soldier refuses to serve in 'illegal Iraq war' May 16 10:49 AM US/Eastern 'Illegal Occupation': US Soldier Refuses To Deploy To Iraq Matthis Chiroux is the kind of young American US military recruiters love. "I was from a poor, white family from the south, and I did badly in school," the now 24-year-old told AFP. "I was 'filet mignon' for recruiters. They started phoning me when I was in 10th grade," or around 16 years old, he added. Chiroux joined the US army straight out of high school nearly six years ago, and worked his way up from private to sergeant. He served in Afghanistan, Germany, Japan, and the Philippines and was due to be deployed next month in Iraq. On Thursday, he refused to go, saying he considers Iraq an illegal war.
