I was thinking about covering the story of Lt. Ehren Watada, but I see Kim has already beaten me to it — and quite ably.
We have a 100% volunteer military. Nobody’s been forced into the service in over 30 years. The time for second thoughts, conscientious objections, and hesitations is BEFORE you sign the papers.
But that doesn’t matter. As soon as the anti-war movement has no more use for Mr. Watada, he’ll be discarded like all the other useful idiots. Because it’s all about the CAUSE.
