You know that our commander-in-chief is on the wrong side of things when an entire Website for soldiers who want out of the military is a thriving business.

Topics include "So you want out of the military?" and "The facts about AWOL."

Here's a war-tribunal website about citizens protesting the illegal invasion of Iraq.

And here's one that tells the story of Lt. Watada, who is being court-martialed for refusing to serve in Iraq. Mind you, "it's illegal for a soldier to engage in any military action which he believes is illegal. Lt. Watada is not going to be allowed to question the illegality of the invasion and occupation of Iraq during his trial. Doesn't that seem like a contradiction? He has been charged with contempt of his Commander in Chief and with conduct unbecoming an officer because he said, in public, that he believes that our war in Iraq is illegal."

(Can you tell I got some politically charged email in Gmail, and that relevant ads appeared? Cool tech, there. Who'd've thought that advertising could lead to interesting political finds?)

Best,
Chris

Interesting--since Bush was awol himself. The Bush admin does not recognize the law of the land, but plays by its own rules.
