American Military Leaders: NOT the Nazi Secret Service
If the United States is ever subjected to a Nuremberg-type trial for war crimes against Iraq (or Iran or whoever’s next on our hit list), the following phrase might be missing: “I vass only following orderss.”
Unlike the German army of 65 years ago, many American military commanders are prepared to resign rather than follow orders to attack Iran. “The British government has learned” (sorry, that phrase always cracks me up) that “there are four or five generals and admirals we know of who would resign if Bush ordered an attack on Iran. There is simply no stomach for it in the Pentagon, and a lot of people question whether such an attack would be effective or even possible.”
Patriotic Americans (true Patriots, not those mindless “don’t you dare question our president” dipshits) should be welling up with pride. Unlike the Axis Powers of World War II and other past aggressors, American military commanders have consciences and values. They're willing to think for themselves — even sacrifice their careers — instead of blindly following orders from a crazed megalomaniac. Is this a great country or what?
