Sorry, you are wrong

Ordering the murder of innocents by ordering others to do it is no different than pulling the trigger. Same moral choice.

I don't disagree that military leaders should be refusing to follow those orders - but that doesn't make a difference in the responsibilities of the Commander and Chief and those in his cabinet, such as Sec. of Defense.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
