Military: no lawful orders exist for unlawful wars; arrest those who issue them
September 8, 2013
US military and families: the Oath of Enlistment is the military’s honor and foundation of armed service: “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
Basic training includes instruction to refuse unlawful orders, with officers authorized to arrest those who issue them. The most important unlawful order to recognize is to deploy for OBVIOUS unlawful war.
Current US wars, including any attack Syria and/or Iran, are Orwellian unlawful because US armed attacks, invasions, and occupations of foreign lands are unlawful Wars of Aggression. Two US treaties, the Kellogg-Briand Pact and UN Charter, make armed attacks on another nation unlawful unless in response to armed attack by that nation’s government. Under Article Six of the US Constitution, a treaty is our “supreme Law of the Land;” meaning that no order can compromise a US active treaty.
