In the news these past couple of weeks is the story of the RAF Officer who is refusing to go to Iraq as he believes the whole thing is illegal. This guy has been suspended on full pay and is awaiting his court martial. He is being court martialled for 4 counts of refusing to obey a lawful command. He has stated that in the manual of airforce law (MAFL) it states that an officer can disobey an order if he believes it to be illegal. He has already completed 2 tours of iraq and 1 tour of afghan but has stated that after hearing the advice the attorney general gave tony blair, he now believes the war to be illegal. He has also stated that he has not got a problem going anywhere else, just iraq. If he wins then this could open a massive can of worms as every lazy bastard will turn round and say they think the war is illegal.
