Global War On Terrorism Deserters

America has fought the Global War on Terror for thirteen years now. As a result of various reasons - conscientious objectors, political disagreement, cowardice, and others - a large number of Americans have deserted the military. Their stories vary, but many are hidden away in Canada facing deportation back to the United States where they face UCMJ (though allegedly only 1,866 of 35,598 deserters have been prosecuted in twelve years). Officially, Article 85, subjects deserters found guilty to death, "c) Any person found guilty of desertion or attempt to desert shall be punished, if the offense is committed in time of war, by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct."

What should be done about those that have been more vocal and obvious about their desertion? It seems the United States has largely looked the other way about the matter given the Army's statistics. But UCMJ is UCMJ, right?
