"Firing Deserters"

Progress toward effective governance in Iraq?

The Iraqi government has dismissed 1,300 soldiers and policemen who deserted or refused to fight during last month’s Shiite-on-Shiite battles in Basra, it said Sunday.

How do you fire a deserter? It seems that someone named Paul Jane Pilzer wrote a book called Should You Quit Before You’re Fired that may be relevant to this issue, but I’d recommend buying my book instead.
