The "Take This War And Shove It" Act Iraq

PoorMan (via Atrios) has a brilliant suggestion:

[Let's] introduce a bill to let soldiers get a General Discharge, no strings attached, if they give two week's notice. Call it "The Take This War And Shove It Act".

If a war isn't important enough or viable enough to retain the support of the people who have to fight it, why should they be forced to continue? Are they not free citizens of a republic?

Ok, it's never going to happen. But the very idea sure clears away the cobwebs.
