Muhammed Ali, Rocky Marciano both went AWOL or refused to serve and won world boxing championships. However even those who volunteer and then decide to leave because the war is for corporate proffit are not wrong. An analogy: we can all basically agree the government is like a mafia. Now out of fear, or necessity one might be coerced into joining the government mafia and promising to go to Iraq and do a Hit for them. Who can say it is wrong to back out of the hit when you realize these aren't bad people, they're being killed over money? Furthermore how is it not courageous to stand against the biggest mafia on earth: The US Government.

never do what you feel (in your heart) is wrong.

never let anyone take away your right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness- we are all born free- and must fight for that freedom for ourselfs and others

if the soldiers felt what they were doing is wrong

it takes some courage to stop
