(Note to U.S. troops. If you are ordered to participate in any action
that is a violation of the Geneva Conventions or the Law of Land
Warfare, you have the legal right and obligation to refuse these orders and report the violation through the chain of command and PAST THE CHAIN OF COMMAND if necessary. If you are stifled in any way in your reporting of criminal activity, contact us at BTHN,( and we will assist you. We have access to military legal experience.
