ROAD TRIP - LT WATADA - RESPECT FOR COL WESTHUSING
Now Playing: Heading to Fort Lewis Military Base to Protest Illegal War
This Monday 2-5-07 my son and I are heading to Fort Lewis to show our support for the honorable solider Lt Ehren Watada, who is being court-marshaled that day. He is being charged with four crimes. It was six but two were recently dropped. We will spend all day outside the Military base protesting. Showing our support! Backing up the lieutenant and standing by his side.
The whole thing should be dropped. I am fully behind the lieutenant and want to send 100% good vibes his way. I am overwhelmed with the impact this man is making and the poignant straight to the crux of the issue, his stance on this, takes our country.
"THIS WAR IS ILLEGAL"
Now why isn't every American (except the neocons like "BUSH-CHENEY-RUMSFELD-WOLFOWITZ- of course) citizen out on the streets Raising Hell about this resisting to fight issue!?
This is the tipping point where our own Military starts to stand up
for Honesty and Integrity and starts saying "NO... we wont fight!"
For Pete's sake ....... I watched a Howard Zenn video where he discusses this concept. See my link here for the video --> http://zebra3report.tripod.com/joeanybodyshome/id76.html
I sure do admire a man that knows right from wrong and .....does the right thing even when he is going to be held to a jail cell. Because he doesn't mind his "Owner"
In this case the ARMY and the bushman company are very wrong and acting illegal and immorally they are waging war on a country. LT Watada is a man of Honor who will not kill just to do as he is told.
The LT knows, like you and I
do ....... That this war is wrong!
And... he stands to go to jail for
about 4 years if he doesn't obey!
The Army wants him to just
.....and If he would just
...and GO KILL IN IRAQ
LIKE THEY WANT HIM TO
do it .....for good ole'

"The war in Iraq is in fact illegal. It is my obligation and my duty to refuse any orders to participate in this war. An order to take part in an illegal war is unlawful in itself. So my obligation is not to follow the order to go to Iraq." - Lt. Ehren Watada
"I cannot support a msn [mission] that leads to corruption, human rights abuse and liars. I am sullied. I came to serve honorably and feel dishonored. Death before being dishonored any more." ~ Ted Westhusing
Col._Ted_Westhusing killed himself over in Iraq. He was disgusted and dishonored by what was going on. He mentioned the greed and corruption. Ted was my cousin and he was a Col. from West Point and was a very, very smart man.
But the sickening horrors of this war that is wrong and full of lies, killing and death and GREED, really brings DEATH to us all collectively.
Unfortunately Ted took his own life ...it is a tragedy ......I am overwhelmed by it. Why did this have to happen...? What can I do to change the direction of this madness? How can I support those who are needing it, like Ted was, and now as I see the Lt. Watada needing as well!
I bring this up because Ted was a lot like LT Watada. They both know the sick immorality dis-honorable way this war is.
They Both do not / did not want any part of it. They both wanted out. They Both were sick n frickiing tired of the killing of innocents! They both REFUSE with their lives to fight for this WAR MACHINE and the neocon illegal mission. My Z3 friends.....They both had to face the WAR MACHINE Monster .....by themselves!! ..how scary can that be Huh ?!!! Can you imagine standing up to thes monsters and telling them "NO" to there face?.......Man I bet that is stressful!
.......NOW listen up!
These men with their flesh and blood...with their spirit, soul, and their very precious life .....are giving it all up to say something...........
Do you Hear it.......................................?
<<they are saying this war is immoral and wrong.....so wrong they will die or go to prison rather than kill or fight anymore>>
Now did you hear it? ....huh? ....and .....do you get it......?
I am asking you seriously .....
DO YOU GET IT ?!
Do you get what these men are saying??????
Or do you still hear bushman and company saying "stay the course...send more troops" ?
Well.......To tell you the truth I don't listen to the liar in chief anymore period...... nope! cant! wont! uhhhh uh
But I do listen and ........ I DO ...hear the battle cry from the field
..Oh I hear it Loud n Clear............I hear it like a frickin bloody scream in the night.............
I Hear it piercing through the media cover ups and the graveyards and the city streets ...... SCREAMING ... --> "HEY HELP STOP THIS WAR . PEOPLE, CITIZENS AT HOME IN THE STATES ........PLEASE HELP ......THIS IS WRONG ...WE ARE KILLING..... WE ARE DIEING...... HELP US >>.....YOU ALL BACK IN THE STATES .....*****DO SOMETHING!!!!!
(INSERT GRAPHICS LIKE DEAD CHILDREN, DOORS OF INNOCENT HOUSE KICKED OPEN , DESTROYED CITIES, BABIES BLOWN APART, MEN INJURED AND MISSING BODY PARTS, RUBBLE AND STENCH EVERY WHERE. etc)
So you see the reason these TWO Great Honorable Men were "screaming in the night" was they wanted your attention.
We are "THE PEOPLE" they wanted us to hear and they need us to support them
We need to hear their cry in the night. Now most my fellow Z3 Readers do hear that screams. I just wanna know .....
"What you are gonna do about it" ?
Well in Lt. Watada case I am trying to do all I can.
I have put together a web page about his honorable cause.
I have stood down at the local recruiting headquarters
I have written my Congressman
I have written my <p>resident
I am heading to the Military Base in 2 days
I pray and hope the light shines on some morals and honor in this country
I hope my cousins message I am sure he wants known ..IS HEARD!
I am in deep appreciation for all those you are doing something to stop this war and the bushman neocon killers illegal war.
It will take All of Us to stop this Insanity, and it is insane

I have been to a few of these rallies for peace and the points that are being made are way off the mark. I feel that if a person is speaking out that the best point of reference is experience. Where is the experience? Why do the people who attend these rallies support the cowards who run from it. There has not been a draft and the military is still 100% voluntary. If you want to support the troops send care packages, vote for reform, and write the people who you've elected.
The fact is most of the people are weak who attend these peace rallies and will listen to anyone with a bullhorn. Be a true independent and think for yourself.
