Rumsfeld to St Thomas: “Conscientiously Object to This, Wimp”

Couldn’t put it more succinctly than Secrecy News:


U.S. Army policy for dealing with military personnel who assert a conscientious objection to military combat is set forth in a newly updated Army regulation (pdf).

Criteria for likely approval or rejection of a conscientious objection claim are described. Claims that are insincere or “based on objection to a certain war” will “not be favorably considered.”

…See “Conscientious Objection,” Army Regulation 600-43, 21 August 2006.

Forget Thomas Aquinas, ain’t no such thing as a Just War anymore — you’re either with us or against us. You’re good for the get down on all wars, or none. None of this “I like this war, but not that” bullshit. Make up your g’damn mind!
