  •  Worse than attaching salaries (0+ / 0-)

    Theoleman: what you suggest is much harder than attaching salaries. In Vietnam, the Capt. William Calley trial revealed for all to see the horrors of war and the direct part American soldiers had in commiting war crimes. Soldiers testified against each other because some had refused to participate in war crimes and were compelled to testifiy against those who did. I think it did much good for people to see what had been done in their name.

    You're right that supporting the Constitution is more than following orders but refusing to follow them may result in a trial for treason.
