Carlos Latuff writes on his blog:
Just following orders?
Being sorry for killing can't bring back the lives of the victims. The best thing to do is REFUSING TO KILL!
Update: Latuff has now added an Arabic version of the cartoon. Bloggers, PLEASE post it and get the word about Ehren and his BRAVE stance out there. SHUKRAN Carlos!
Ehren's statement and refusal : "I refuse to be silent any longer. I refuse to be party to an illegal and immoral war against a people who did nothing to deserve our aggression". His first court marshall ended in a mistrial against him on February 7th. The army has refiled ALL charges against him INCLUDING the two they had formerly dropped. He now faces six years in prison for not only refusing deployment but for VERY publically speaking out against this administrations war crimes. PLEASE, if this is the first time you have heard about Ehren, link to the site Latuff gave above and sign the petition in support of Ehren who has gone FAR beyond what any other member of the military has done. It's from WITHIN the military this war is going to fall apart and our support to Ehren and the others at Corage to Resist will encourage many more to do the same, REFUSE ILLEGAL WAR!!
