Notice that would-be deserter, Army 1st Lt. Ehren Watada is described in most press reports as "not a conscientious objector, because he does not object to all wars." This begs the complementary observation that he also is not a conscientious objector because he is not conscientious!
Just because MoveOn.org and the Democrat Party drone unceasingly about Bush's "illegal war" does not alter the objectively verifiable fact that the U.S. Congress authorized (and has re-authorized several times) the war.
Does this meathead mean that the war is illegal because it supposedly violates international law? His oath is to uphold the U.S. Constitution, not the U.N. Charter.
By the way, how does media treatment of this lieutenant who refuses to obey what he considers unlawful orders compare with the coverage of, say, Judge Roy Moore?
