“I was following orders”

How many wars would we humans actually fight without heads of states declaring them and a military following orders? Imagine there is war and nobody joins.

Germany had to learn that the excuse of ‘I was following orders’ neither removes responsibility from the individual nor the people of a nation as a whole.

“The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him. “I was following orders”, is not an excuse

Germany, opposed to the war against Iraq can now demonstrate solidarity with those who refuse following orders. We can demonstrate if we are courages enough to stand up against the USA.
