I have tried 3 times to get off of the discussion list.  I have unsubscribed
with all of my emails.

I think this part may not be working. Has anyone else here been trying to
unsubscribe?

Defense


Apparently the Nuremberg Principles do not apply to the US military.

Questions for Quakers:

1. Do you believe there is such a thing as a "just war"?

2. Do you think the invasion of Iraq was illegal?

3. Do you think the Occupation of Iraq is illegal?

4. Do you hold individual soldiers responsible, under the Nuremberg
Principles, for the war crimes committed in relation to US military
actions in Iraq?

5. Is Lt. Watada justified in invoking the Nuremberg Defense?

For those not yet familiar with Lt. Ehrin Watada, I refer you to

We are at a momentous turning point in the conduct of US foreign policy,
and Lt. Watada is an icon in the struggle to wrest control from the
Executive Branch. I invite conversation on the general topic of curbing
or ending the war as well.
