Refusing a direct order, the lawful ones, is illegal and punishable under the UCMJ. Since most people don't know the entire story how can anyone
refuse these orders? The thread that was linked is this exact scenerio.
Nobody except those at the top know what is really going on. How can anyone think they know what is going on if they are not part of that group? You
can assume all you want, but if you don't get all the intel you don't know anything and anything you think can be wrong.
I am not one to take a chance and find out if i'm right or wrong when it comes to something like disobeying a direct order. Those who have opinions
should understand that they don't know everything unless they are at the top. Keeping all the info from reaching all the troops is how things are
done, and it is done for a good reason.
The people that did these articles don't know the entire story, regardless if it is a conspiricy or not. They make all service members look bad and
that cannot go without being punished. Like I said before, if you don't like it seperate. And if you think you know everything you better be way up
on the food chain, otherwise your ideas or opinions don't mean a thing, this includes the ones that I have.
Nothing gets ordered unless many people say yes, and so far that is exactly what has happened. Congress has approved what has happened and the
executive branch signs off on it. The military is doing what they get paid to do. If anyone has a problem with that change those who get elected.
I don't want to come off as harsh or loud at anyone reading this but the military has one job to do, defend this country regardless of who is in
charge. So far the military is doing exactly that. I also know more then most on this site because of my job, but I still don't know everything so I
am learning to keep my opinions and ideas offline since they don't belong here.
