Soldier balks at deploying; says Obama isn’t president

Original article, by Lily Gordon and subtitled Says he shouldn’t have to go to Afghanistan because Obama is not a U.S. citizen, via ledger-enquirer.com:

U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook, set to deploy to Afghanistan, says he shouldn’t have to go.

His reason?

Barack Obama was never eligible to be president because he wasn’t born in the United States.

OK. The reasoning is about what you’d expect for a birther. All well and good, considering. However, I think this is a point we may remember is a while in that Obama’s loosing the right on deploying for the war.

This is a good thing if you are anti-war.

It’s as the ol’ song says:

No more deluded by reaction

on tyrants only we’ll make war

The soldiers, too, will take strike action

They’ll break ranks, they’ll fight no more.

While I doubt that U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook will want to be known as being the one who started us on the path the Internationale sets out, let’s hope he is.

Is the Pony/Pie/Hide rating system too cutsie?
