    I have only a little to say on this 1 every soldier has a duty to voice his opinion to his CO if he has evidence to back up what he is saying 2 every soldier must be ready to bypass the chain of command to talk to an officer further up or at thr top of the ladder 3 all concepts and opinions must be regularlly challenged and debated 4 orders that are illegal must not be obayed and should be challenged 5 legal orders must be followed 6 Israeli courts have ruled that commanders in the field can and do have the right to change orders if the situation before them necessitates. example the cass against Arik Sharon in 1973 7 officers are not Gods they do make errors of judgement 8 REMEMBER THE YOM KIPPUR WAR HOW AND WHY WE GOT CAUGHT OFF GUARD The author of this served and fought in 73 is a historian and holds a Masters Degree In the study of Intellgence
