29. She's -not- refusing to "die for a lie"
I am -not- smearing her, nor is she refusing to "die for a lie".

She has said she's not averse to going to a dangerous place.

She has no compunction about being a crew member of a ship that fires missiles to kill people.

She just doesn't want to do what she is told because it is a "waste of her skills". Poor, poor primadona.

I would consider having a small bit of admiration if she was refusing orders on moral grounds, but she's not. Anyway, the time to do that was when Bush invaded Iraq, not when it becomes inconvenient/dangerous. I am a bit less sympathetic to anyone that is willing to be in the service, get training, collect money, then refuse orders when they might actually have to go into harm's way. Not entirely unsympathetic, just a bit jaundiced.
