  •  Well... (none)

    I consider myself a good "patriotic" soldier then.  To ME a good soldier is not a roboton that follows any and all orders.  A good soldier knows that there are such things as illegal orders.  It is a good soldiers duty to disobey illegal orders and report said orders to the correct legal authorities.

    To ME a good soldier is one who actually takes the oath to heart and makes it a part of his or her being.  The oath, above all else, is what spells out a soldiers duty in the USA (or it is supposed to).  I WILL protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic.  I expect the same from any and all soldiers that work under me or next to me or have leadership over me.  If they do NOT take this oath to heart and mean it, or if they tolerate violations of this oath from those around them, they are not good soldiers, they are traitors and moral cowards.  Powell is the latter.  I spit on him and his "service" because he has long forgotten (and apparently never actually accepted) the oath.
