Download Hour1 Download Hour2George Bush's announcement earlier this week of an escalation of troop deployment to Iraq sparked protests around the world. Polls showed more than two thirds of Americans, including those in the military, oppose the escalation. This raises a basic question - what if anything legitimizes Bush to take a life and death action that most people here, and in Iraq oppose, and why should soldiers obey Bush's, rather than the people's will. More fundamentally, why should anyone obey orders they oppose. And a related question, why do they?
