Army charges officer for refusing to fight in Iraq

(This is oldish, I’ve been meaning to blog it for a while now)

First Lt. Ehren Watada [is] the first commissioned U.S. officer to publicly refuse to serve in Iraq

After weighing the evidence, he came to the conclusion that he could no longer be silent while atrocities were committed in the name of democracy. He could no longer be a tool of an administration that used deception and lies to make the case for pre-emptive war.

My son no longer stands at the crossroads. He has chosen “the road less traveled.” Come what may, he is committed to staying the course.

Spread the meme. May more officers following what he’s doing.
