Conscientious Objectors

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on June 22, 2007


“To qualify for conscientious objector status and to be granted military discharge on that basis, an individual must oppose all wars, not just a particular war. However, a conscientious objector may still embrace “spiritual warfare” between good and evil, the Department of Defense explained in a new policy instruction.”

This reminds me of Ehren Watada 225px-lt_ehren_watada.jpg

By refusing to return to Iraq he set the standards for what it means to be a conscientious objector in a modern society.

He is not alone:

 

Yesterday, June 19, 26 year old SPC Eli Israel put himself at great
personal risk by making the courageous decision to refuse further
participation in the U.S. occupation of Iraq. Eli told his commanding
officer and sergeants that he will no longer be a combatant in this
illegal, unjustified war.

I can’t help but feel that what we are witnessing, with soldiers refusing to serve in Iraq anymore is another Vietnam – with the distinction that during the Vietnam War US drafted people into the military – this is not the case in the Iraqi War. Instead Recruiters are working the streets and the US Army is even accepting convicts – that might not be such a novel idea, since the French Foreign Legion has always accepted anyone as long as they could pass the training. What is worse: They are actively recruiting illegal aliens through the use of promises of green cards once they have completed their turn. What happens to their families if they do not return? Their families have no rights, nothing to fall back on if the providing part of the family becomes another casualty of war.

How is that ethical?

It’s not. “Support our Troops” is the Slogan – it seems to me that the best way for the American People to support their troops is to support those who refuse to serve.

Shalom!

Nazis in the US Army…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 12, 2006


“An article in the National Alliance magazine Resistance urged skinheads to join the Army and insist on being assigned to light infantry units.

The Southern Poverty Law Center identified the author as Steven Barry, who it said was a former Special Forces officer who was the alliance’s “military unit coordinator.”

“Light infantry is your branch of choice because the coming race war and the ethnic cleansing to follow will be very much an infantryman’s war,” he wrote. “It will be house-to-house, neighborhood-by-neighborhood until your town or city is cleared and the alien races are driven into the countryside where they can be hunted down and ‘cleansed.’ ”

He concluded: “As a professional soldier, my goal is to fill the ranks of the United States Army with skinheads. As street brawlers, you will be useless in the coming race war. As trained infantrymen, you will join the ranks of the Aryan warrior brotherhood.” (New York Times)

Nothing in this surprises me – what does surprise me is that the Bush Admin is letting it past the printers. This story only confirms what the rest of the world already knows – that Bush and Co. and Hitler and Co has a lot more in common than what the average Amrican knows and will admit.

Let’s not be duped – Aryan Nation and National Alliance may be called “neo-nazis” and “white supremacists” by the press – those labels are misleading – there is nothing “neo” about their Nazism – it’s just the plain old stuff wrapped in a nicer paper by the press, so we won’t think that those good American boys are REAL Nazis.

News Flash!: They are. They always have been. Bush and Co are just the Upper and Middle Class version of it, so no wonder they go about recruting grunts from the lower tiers in Society, grunts make good cannon-fodder.

Shalom!
