Dr. Dahlia Wasfi's powerful speech on Youtube

By flacafina - Posted on 07 September 2010


It couldn't be stated any better than Dr Dahlia Wasfi did and I agree that it's a "powerful speech". I'm glad to finally hear someone of truly respectable humanity state what she did about U.S. having initially been lied into the war, but that after five years, the truth was known and the troops therefore have an absolute duty to refuse to continue to obey these supreme criminal orders; and if they refuse to do that, then they make themselves really guilty servants of the war makers. I'd only make an exception for soldiers who are so severely PTSD'd that they really are unable to realize that the orders they follow are criminal, or who are now so psychologically damaged that they are unable to refuse criminal orders when knowing they're criminal. But all soldiers continuing to carry out the orders to serve in Iraq or Afghanistan and who aren't PTSD'd really have no excuse; unless they truly are the [dumb animals] Henry Kissinger said soldiers are. Well, many of them are not that dumb and do realize that the wars are based on lies and are therefore criminal, so these troops have an absolute duty to dissent.

If they don't, then they are guilty of war crimes and are prosecutable.
