surely, there are many Americanmilitary personnel who are wary about this whole ordeal. if this proves to be an unjust and unwarranted war on Iraq, can and should we distinguish between those issueing orders and those follwoing them? separate the war from those fighting it? Bush has stated that "just following orders" is not an acceptable defense for Sadam's troops to fight for him. and i agree, but does that standard not also apply to U.S.? I'm thinking YES.
