SPC Katherine Jashinski has publically announced her intention to refuse orders to complete weapons training in preparation for being sent to war (story). She made this announcement at the gates of Fort Benning.
There are a number of US War Resisters in Canada, some seeking refugee status. Interesting times!
A war without legality... launched in a cloud of lies and executed through an occupying force...men and women who are unable to express their conscientious objection. (Thanks to Penney Kome, Editor of Straight Goods for linking to this story.)
When good people decide to do stand by their integrity, stand up for that integrity in their actions, that’s what slowly brings about change in the long term for the better.
I think its what binds us together as part of our global village, a mutual respect to stand against human rights abuses and stand up for freedom of choice, our community morality, an expression of who we are and what we stand for.
So does fighting terrorism means we throw the rule book out the window. use sophisticated terrorist tactics like torture to fight terrorism and let’s let everyone know we have the moral “right” to make pre emptive strikes against anyone…..if your not with us ….your against us …..you had better look out. I almost forgot to include the remarks of well known evangelist …wars sometimes the only solution but we can always pray that gods on our side.
it makes a person think.
