Watada Supporters Who Favor Military Dictatorship

| | Comments (0)
The Seattle P-I printed a guest column by writer Dean Paton, who claims that Watada should be able to claim in his court martial that the Iraq War is illegal.

Other geniuses like Sean Penn say the same thing.

But in order for a court martial to allow this defense, it would have to be able to rule that the defense is valid. And if a court martial rules the defense is valid -- that the war is illegal -- that would constitute the military overruling the civilian government, which has determined that the war is legal.

This sort of thing has another name: "military coup."

It's normally the sort of things liberals do not want ... or so I thought. slashdot.org
