I Don't Know How I Feel

I really don't know how I feel about 1st Lt. Ehren Watada, who is refusing to deploy to Iraq because it is an illegal war and therefore orders to report to Iraq are illegal. I completely agree that the war is illegal, and I sympathize with his decision, but I don't know all the details of his situation and therefore I'm just not sure what to think.

I do know that this opens a very ugly can of worms that was opened in the Vietnam war. I hope we learned our lessons from Vietnam, but I'm very afraid that we haven't learned anything, and that history is about to repeat itself yet again.
