Army: Order-refusing GIs should be punished.

This is good news. Discipline must be maintained and is very crucial particularly in a volunteer force. Letting them off with a slap on the wrist would have sent a signal - the wrong signal - to other troops.

I also wanted to mention the incident with the Marine shooting the wounded muj in Falluja.

A) Good job Devil Dog. In the environment he's dealing with (and prior experience with fellow unit members being killed by boobie-trapped dead and wounded muj) I think I would have done the same thing. Arm-chair generals go to hell.

B) Thank God President Bush refused to have anything to do with the ICC. Can you imagine this poor second-guessed bastard being put on tribunal in Brussels? I can just imagine that sort of thing would do wonders for recruitment levels.
