The issue here is that you seem to try and make reality bend to your sole perception. I've noticed this in your other posts as well. I've noticed that your concept of reality is based on the official party line of Bush and company. If you want to call that reality, I feel truly sorry for you. My concerns are debatable, and you like your leader conceit to know that they are not. The question here is not whether immoral things are legal. We know they are. It is whether a human individual has the right under God to deny immoral commands, a right that trumps any rights given to them by country. Perhaps not legally, but even under the professed rights of oppressed people in other countries - rights professed by the president, yet inexplicably not given to his own people. We punish and kill those who follow Saddam's immoral orders, yet we deal the same retribution to those of our own country who do not follow Bush's immoral orders during wartime. Suffer consequences our troops will if they refuse, but I am speaking against "the law" in this case, which you have no concept of unless it suits a right wing agenda. If you truly believe that soldiers can get out that easily through legal avenues, you should read their stories. CO status is not granted until service is over these days. What's the point of that?
