Simple
CNN.com - Army sergeant refuses 2nd Iraq deployment: "'I told them that I refused deployment because I just couldn't go back over there,' Benderman said Wednesday. 'If I'm going to sit up there and tell everyone that I do not believe in war, why would I go back to a war zone?'"

Because you made a commitment to the armed forces, and it is your responsibility as a man of your word to live up to that commitment. The main stream press shouldn't even be covering this matter—it is an internal matter, and the man should face a courtmartial for dereliction of duty.

He has every right to object to war and refuse to serve, but he has to face the consequences of his actions as well.
