No where in Prager's article does he justify killing as moral "just because you Government says it is..." CPT Kudo had no obligation to enlist if his moral objections to war were strong enough. However he freely chose to take the oath of enlistment and to subordinate his personal will in order to submit to and obey the lawful orders of those appointed over him. If he believed that those orders were not lawful because they were immoral, then he had a obligation and duty to refuse them. That he now cries alligator tears over doing his duty shows that he's either a hypocrite following some personal agenda or guilty of dereliction of duty. His honor is questionable. In either case, the US military is better off without him.

I do not envy Kudo his crisis, and do not wish it on anybody. But the Military and the Nation need MORE people like him.

Last week, the Washington Post published an opinion piece by a Marine captain titled, "I Killed People in Afghanistan. Was I Right or Wrong?"

The column by Timothy Kudo, who is now a graduate student at New York University, is a fine example of the moral confusion leftism has wrought over the last half century. Captain Kudo's moral confusion may predate his graduate studies, but if so, it has surely been reinforced and strengthened at NYU.

The essence of Mr. Kudo's piece is that before he served in Afghanistan he was ethically unprepared for killing, that killing is...
