According to the standards set forth by the US led nuremberg trials "only following orders" is not a valid defense to war crimes... being ordered to
go kill people from some dude, an imposter'n chief, just might be unlawful and against international laws.
Nuremberg Principle IV: "The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from
responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him."
He has a "moral" obligation to refuse under principle IV, unfortunately for him the limited due process he'll get is analogous to the german
military deciding a nazi officer refusing orders was insubordinate.. he'll likely get smoked by US laws.. but maybe one day an international
nuremberg 2.0 will happen and this guy, if not dead, will be a hero.. if dead, a martyr with his own statue.
