Re: Soldiers disobeying orders in Iraq.
Heard this story on the news this evening. It does sound like a suicide mission, and just asking to be ambushed.
Having said that, many a soldier have been lost on un-winnable situations that had to be attempted. How do we not know that the convoy wasn't a decoy for something more important (well, I've seen one many war movie maybe?).
I think disciplinary action is in order.... Just not sure to what extent.
They did refuse to follow orders, and it would be bad to be set as a precedence if they got off scott free.
Be fast or be last.
