The war began under Pres. Bush who (1) no one questions the citizenship of, an (2) was authorized by Congress under a couple of joint resolutions.
The actions authorizing offense combat operations in Iraq and Afghan BOTH precede Obama’s swearing in and are a continuation of a long-standing “war.”
To allow individual service-people to determine if they will personally attend any war of their choice is to threaten the lives of those already deployed by (1) not offering them their time of recovery, and (2) to deny suitably trained replacements to fill vacant slots in units that are intricately designed to achieve a level of combat power based on all the parts being in place.
I’ll be damned if I’ll let some prima donna captain affect the safety of my son deployed overseas.
She should be BCD specialed and drummed out of service....which I personally think she’s hoping for, so she can attend to what is probably a more lucrative medical practice.
I suspect that the captain is willing to follow the order to deploy, however SOMEBODY has to have standing to challenge the authority of Obama to give legal orders if people suspect that because of his birth he is not legally eligible to give those orders.
If a military officer does not have standing to challenge the authority of the CIC, then nobody does.
Is that the way we set up the constitution?
If an imposter is sworn in as President, there is nobody on earth with the authority to challenge his status?
The constitution also says that the president must be removed from office after 8 years. What if Obama decides to pull a Zelaya? What if he, by executive order, decides the constitution does not prohibit him from appointing himself President for Life?
It can't happen here?
