Besides Sending Your Memorial for Oct 12th (Lt Watada)


The future of Lt. Watada is now in the hands of Lieutenant General James Dubik, Commanding General at Fort Lewis, Washington. He has yet to set a date for the court-martial. Will he drop the charges against Watada, as letter-writers urge? Or will he, like his timid predecessors, repeat the follies of the past?

There is no man or woman in uniform who speaks with greater passion, force and clarity than Lt. Watada: “It is my conclusion as an officer of the armed forces that the war in Iraq is not only morally wrong, but a horrible breach of American law.”

Honor Above Obedience
By David Krieger
I write in praise of Ehren Watada, a brave young man who has placed truth and honor above obedience. Watada, a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army, has refused orders for deployment to Iraq on the grounds that he is bound to uphold the U.S. Constitution and not to follow illegal orders. By taking this stand, he is putting the war, its initiators and those in charge of conducting it on trial while putting himself at risk of incarceration.


Judicial Complicity In U.S. War Crimes
by Paul Rockwell
For Vietnam War veterans, the pending court-martial of Lt. Ehren Watada is déjà vu “all over again.” Watada may be the first commissioned officer to refuse deployment to Iraq, but he is hardly the first American soldier to face trumped-up charges for denouncing U.S. aggression abroad

This video combines Lt. Watada's points as well as supporting evidence from respected others to show that we all must do something to stop the madness currently in control of our Country, Congress and White House.
