Picard: "Captain, I would just like you to know that Commander Riker..."
Jellico: "I've read your reports, Jean Luc, I know you think highly of him."
Picard: "Look, it's not just my opinion. He's been decorated by Starfleet Command five times, he's been offered his own ship more than once. I think if you'd just give him a chance, you'll find him an outstanding officer.
In the army you don't need to follow leaders you just have to follow orders no matter how insane.
---And what was it Picard said? "However, the claim, "I was just following orders" has been used to justify too many tragedies in our history."----
Yep, spoken like a true Liberal.
However, if it is not an illegal order, you have to follow it.
That's the way it is, sorry to break that to you.
So your OIC eye to take your weapon and secure the hill.
You don't sit and talk about it, you take your weapon and secure the hill.
What if your commanding officer tells you to target civilians?
Do you agree with that Nak? What if your commanding officer tells you to target civilians?
You want to talk about changing scenarios. You've taken this from disobeying an order to change shift rotations to gassing Jews.
The put every German soldier on trial? Are the trials still going on?
Or did they put commanding officers on trial?
It's war, the command structure keeps things from the troops and further stuff happens.
Like I said above I knew a bomber pilot from the Vietnam war, he bombed places.
He was so high up he couldn't even see what he was bombing for the most part.
Did he bomb civilians, possibly, he felt that he very well could have.
He wasn't put on trial🤔Mm wonder why?
Nope mostly those in command were put on trial in Nuremberg
No even though the strategic importance of Hiroshima was neglectable
I'm assuming you read a history book and closed it after you read about the Nuremburg trials. They went after as many people as they felt like right down to camp guards.
Also not true. There were military and strategic targets in the city.
