    Nonsense. The accused is a weak, pathetic little man who was scared to deploy overseas. This was his ticket out of that requirement. That's all there is to this coward.

    Hasan states multiple scholars agree with him that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are illegal. He specifically cites Frances A. Boyle, a political science professor at the University of Illinois, whom Hasan intended to call to the stand to argue the validity of his “defense of others” claim.

    Francis Boyle:

    In an article published in several sources, including the Atlantic Free Press, in October 2010, Boyle suggested that Israel change its name to "Jewistan - The State of the Jews",[21] explaining that:

    "Israel has never been anything but a Bantustan for Jews setup in the Middle East by the White racist and genocidal Western colonial imperial powers in order to serve as their racist attack dog and genocidal enforcer against the Arab and Muslim world. From the very moment of Western imperialism's genocidal conception of Israel in 1947-1948, Israel has historically always functioned as Jewistan – the world's Bantustan for the Jews. So Israel might as well finally change its name today to Jewistan, own up to its racist birthright, and make it official for the rest of the world to acknowledge.

    He concluded the article by stating:
    "In the meantime, the Palestinians should sign nothing with Jewistan/Israel and let this Bantustan for Jews collapse of its own racist and genocidal weight. Good riddance!"


    From studying the writings of these people, who are so educated, they don't have good common sense.

    The whole group involved with the Hasan cause, are a bunch of left leaning hate filled radicals, who should be loaded up on a ship and dumped on some island. Let them take their bitterness out on each other. Maybe they would finally eliminate themselves.

    The French may be willing to make a deal and lease out Devils Island for this purpose.
