no course but to resign

where are this war's heroes, military and journalistic? dave lindorff.

Under the Geneva Conventions, it is a war crime to execute a captive. Yet in Kunar on December 26, US-led forces, or perhaps US soldiers or contract mercenaries, cold-bloodedly executed nine hand-cuffed prisoners. It is a war crime to kill children under the age of 15, yet in this incident a boy of 11 and a boy of 12 were handcuffed as captured combatants and executed. Two others of the dead were 12 and a third was 15. These are capital offenses under the Geneva Conventions, to which the US is a signatory. So is covering up the crime, all the way up the chain of command.

words absolutely fail me.

take it away, commander gillie.

oath keepers first annual conference (1/4).

"history teaches us, that when you found a republic, one of the most dangerous things you can do to jeopardize the existence of your republic, is to create and then maintain, for a generation... or two... or three... a large, standing, military establishment."
"think about the last ten years."

oath keepers first annual conference (2/4).

"we bind every officer ... to an oath to support the constitution of the united states against all enemies foreign and domestic."

oath keepers first annual conference (3/4).

"you are utterly powerless to do anything which never came through [the presidency] to begin with."

oath keepers first annual conference (4/4).

"excuse me sir, i don't think we have authority to do that."

alright, commander. let's see it happen.

"crisis averted."

note: cmdr. gillie's definition of "unitary" has little to do with unitary executive theory, which is essentially a fancy phrase that describes what gillie calls caesarism.
