Sailor refuses to serve in Iraq war

Petty Officer 3rd Class Pablo Paredes refused to board his ship when it sailed to Iraq on Monday morning, because of "philosophical" opposition to the Iraq war.
    Paredes had planned to publicly throw his military I.D. into the ocean to underscore his stand against the war. But yesterday, he changed his mind after learning that he could be charged with destruction of government property.
I wonder if he minds being charged with desertion.
