Conduct Unbecoming

By Cindy Sheehan

I don't know Lt. Ehren Wataba, but I know his mother, and spoke at length with her back in May in Hawaii about how Ehren morally did not want to go to Iraq and how he was being harassed by other members of his unit for his beliefs that the war in Iraq was wrong and that he didn't want to kill innocent people for BushCo.

Ehren tried everything he could within regulations and legal means to be excused from going over to the war crime in Iraq and becoming a war criminal himself; nothing worked, so he refused to be deployed with his unit.

Today he was charged with missing movement, contempt towards officials and conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman. Conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman! Are they kidding me? Are they kidding the world and hiding behind an ancient code while they are pretending that anything about Iraq or our government is "gentlemanly?"

How about looking at the Commander in Chief of our armed forces, George Bush, for one? George Bush is a dry drunk who runs our country like he ran all of his failed businesses - with an attitude that if he screws up, his daddy, or his daddy's friends, will bail him out. He has already said that the problem of Iraq will be solved by "future presidents" which absolves and excuses him from cleaning up the murderous mess that he has made.

George Bush and his daddy used their contacts to get him a spot in the Texas Air National Guard during Vietnam. When he was transferred to the Alabama Air National Guard he never showed up to complete his military commitment to the United States. Now I have no problem with Georgie, or "I had other priorities" five-deferment Dicky, getting out of going to the war crime in Vietnam, but to grow up and strong arm your way into the CIA to fix intelligence and to deceive a country and play on its fears to lead us into another war crime is inexcusable and cowardly.

To also underscore what a "gentleman" our president is, when he was asked about meeting with me when we were camped outside of his ranch, within spittin' distance, he said that he "had to get on with his life." How nice that George is able to get on with his life! Wish I had that option. It's so nice that George can "get on with his life" when he has sent so many off to lose theirs and steal the lives of others. George can be very flippant about it because he has no flesh and blood in harm's way and he never attends any funerals or allows any pictures of flag-draped coffins to offend his sensibilities so he can get on with his life bike riding or destroying the world.

Donald "you go to war with the army you have, not the army you want" and he of the famous machine-signed condolence letters Rumsfeld is Lt. Wataba's civilian leader in the Pentagon. Donny has constantly and consistently ignored advice for more troops from generals in the field and we can be sure that when he makes his unannounced visits to Iraq he travels in heavily armored vehicles and is far better protected than our troops, even when he moves about DC. I have an idea! How about not sending our young people off to fight, die and kill innocents in an illegal and immoral war whether they are prepared or not!

We have already mentioned "5 Deferment Dick" and his Doctrine of the Insurgency Last Throes - what more can be said of the ungentlemanly conduct of our nation's shadow president? How about when he told Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont to go and "f**k" himself on the Senate floor? How about mistaking your best friend for a dove and shooting him in the face while allegedly intoxicated and waiting until 24 hours to report it so there would be no evidence of the intoxication? How about the coincidence of the company that he used to run being awarded billions of no-bid contracts in the Iraq war crime? Just his ever present sneer with the raising of one eyebrow as if he is incessantly smelling something awful is distinctly ungentlemanly!

There are so many examples of Ungentlemanly Conduct in BushCo that the examples could fill pages and pages. How about allowing the people of New Orleans to hang off their houses while George plays guitar and eats birthday cake with John McCain? How about when Press Secretary Tony Snow was asked about the unnecessary and tragic number of 2500 when that casualty number was reached and he said, "It is only a number." How about all of the administration lying about mushroom clouds and terrorism in Iraq with colored pie charts and pointing sticks? The list goes on. The list goes on.

Everyone, male or female, in the Bush Regime should be charged with Ungentlemanly Conduct which is Article 133 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Lt. Wataba should be set free and allowed to carry on with his life because it is also in the UCMJ that a soldier has a duty to disobey an unlawful order, and from our own Constitution to international law, everything about Iraq is unlawful (UCMJ ART. 90-920).

Lt. Wataba also took an oath to defend our country from all enemies "foreign and domestic" and one doesn't have to cross any international borders to find the enemies of freedom and of life that we all have to be defended from.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, Lt. Ehren Wataba for doing your duty.

Valley of the Wolves Iraq (Turkish: Kurtlar Vadisi Irak) is a popular and controversial 2006 Turkish film based on a television series of the same name that has been a hit in Turkey for three seasons.

Filmed with a budget of $10 million, Valley of the Wolves is the most expensive film ever made in Turkey.


The film has proved controversial due to its portrayal of some US military personnel and Jewish characters as being responsible for a number of real and fictional atrocities and war crimes:

* A scene depicts the Abu Ghraib Prison abuses, where prisoners were mistreated by US forces.
* In one sequence, the American commander Sam William Marshall (the film's villain) raids an Arab wedding and massacres a number of civilians, which might allude to a May 19, 2004 incident in Mukaradeeb.
* When detainees being transported in a sealed container are in danger of suffocating, an American soldier fires upon the container "in order to make holes for the air to get in", but many detainees are injured or die. A similar event is reported to have occurred in Afghanistan after the battle for Mazar-i Sharif on November 9, 2001, with Taliban soldiers in the container and soldiers of the Afghan Northern Alliance as their guardians, as described in the documentary film Massacre at Mazar by Irish filmmaker Jamie Doran.

* The film also features a Jewish-American doctor (Gary Busey) who explants organs of Iraqi prisoners to sell to rich people in New York, London and Tel Aviv for transplantation. This character's inclusion has led to accusations of Anti-Semitism (see Blood libel against Jews) since it relates to a Nazi physician Dr. Mengele.

Mukaradeeb is a small village in Iraq near the Syrian border which has been the site of an alleged war crime by the United States of America Armed Forces. According to reports parts or all of the village were attacked by an American AC-130 Gunship on May 19, 2004, killing 42 men, women and children. The casualties, 11 of whom were women and 14 were children, were confirmed by Hamdi Noor al-Alusi, the manager of the nearest hospital. Western journalists also viewed the bodies of the children before they were buried.

The previous day there had been a wedding party in the village. American military claimed that traditional celebratory gunfire was misinterpreted as an attack on American helicopters. However, this account is disputed since the attack commenced at 3:00 a.m. when most of the guests were asleep. Initially the US military also insisted no children were killed. The location of the village shown in a video is claimed to be incorrect, as the hills in the video background differ from the hills around Mukaradeeb.

One survivor, the 30 year old sister-in-law of the groom, Mrs. Shihab, stated that the American troops inspected the bodies, kicking them to check if they were alive. "I fell into the mud and an American soldier came and kicked me. I pretended to be dead so he wouldn't kill me. My youngest child was alive next to me."

At a press conference, Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt said “There was no evidence of a wedding: no decorations, no musical instruments found, no large quantities of food or leftover servings one would expect from a wedding celebration, no gifts. There was no wedding tent.” He produced photographs of rifles, machine guns, foreign passports, bedding and other items and claimed that the lack of identification on the dead demonstrated that “a high-risk meeting of high-level anti-coalition forces” had been underway.

The following day, however, Associated Press Television News (APTN) obtained a copy of a videotape of the wedding celebrations filmed by cameraman Yasser Shawat Abdullah who was hired to record the event. Among the dead were prominent Iraqi musicians Hussein al-Ali and his brother Mohaned al-Ali.

Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the Internet's First Amendment -- a principle called Network Neutrality that prevents companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast from deciding which Web sites work best for you -- based on what site pays them the most. If the public doesn't speak up now, our elected officials will cave to a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign.
