All the poster was trying to do was add to the list of armies Irishmen had fought in. There was no pro or anti US to it and I thought the !.!.! was more of a joke against the whole pro/anti us crap that gets thrown around here.
As for deserting, considering they deserted to fight for the other side shows that they held pretty strong beliefs. For that I respect them, its not like they ran away because they were afraid.
