I turn especially to any current and former members of any country's armed forces for this issue. Does any given soldier have a responsibility to refuse orders they feel are wrong, inappropriate (in a major way) or otherwise a crime against the constitution? Is there ever a time when one should simply follow orders and not question a superior officer? I find it disturbing that 60 years after Nuremberg that the term "I was just following orders" is still being used to defend what seems to be clearly inappropriate and criminal conduct. I hope we can discuss the importance of the chain of command in any military or government here, and the need to refuse to carry out an order that appears to be criminal in nature.
