Well now. can't argue with that. Very interesting case this will be.

A lot depends on it-know it or not. But, as I recent found out, the AZ law that is being worked on only indicateds anything about a Birth Certificate is being called Documents. Not very explicit to exactly what type of BC would be acceptable. A Long form BC, Short Form, Cert of Birth, etc.

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.

Oh the drama!


Cmon! The most that is going to happen to this guy is he is going to get dishonorably discharged for refusing to follow orders.
