obviously you are going to say that.
show us this research then. if he was a soldier he would have had to do those things, every soldier have to follow orders.
what has he got to gain? and i must say he is very brave speaking out about the government like that, hes putting his life at risk to tell the truth
A good book called 'The Will To Resist: Soldiers Who Refuse To Fight in Iraq and Afghanistan' details the experiences of soldiers who refuse to serve. It shows that the ex-soldiers experiences and thoughts are not unique.
Dahr Jamail, author of Beyond the Green Zone, brings us inside the movement of military resistance to the occupation of Iraq.
the US project in Iraq has been condemned as illegal and unjust by a vibrant and vocal antiwar movement since before the invasion began. since 2006, a majority in the US has opposed the continuation of the occupation, and reported to pollsters that they believe the invasion was a mistake. But how do soldiers who carry out the occupation see the war?
Fragmented reports of battalions refusing orders, of active duty soldiers signing antiwar petitions, of individual soldiers refusing redeployment and taking public stand against the occupation have trickled into the mainstream reportage over the last 5 years. But how deep does the current resistance run? What makes soldiers deployed in Iraq decide to go AWOL, file for conscientious objector status, or even serve sentences in military prisons to avoind taking part in this unpopular engagment?
Dahr Jamails comprehensive study of todays military resisters sheds new light on the contours of dissent within the ranks of the worlds most powerful military, documenting the fight for justice inside the belly of the beast.
