MILITARY DECLARES SOLDERS ARE NOT US CITIZENS A US military judge ruled Tuesday that 1st Lt. Ehren Watada [advocacy website; JURIST news archive], a US Army officer who refused deployment to Iraq [JURIST report] because he felt the war is 'unlawful,' cannot argue that point in his upcoming court-martial. Lt. Col. John Head further ruled that Watada may not raise a free speech defense, as soldiers do not enjoy the same constitutional rights as civilians.

For all intents and purposes you lose your citizenship. Of course, I understand why the military judge is taking this position, and for the same reason judges will never honestly rule on the tax codes (with the sole exception of judge James C Fox); to rule honestly according to the law means the end of the good times. No more war, no more war money. Well, all you readers wearing the uniform, sorry to say but apparently you are not Americans any more. The Bill of Rights does not apply to you. So go out there and get killed to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic.
