I'm close to reaching my point of no return perhaps. I am seriously considering getting arrested in Hong Kong next year during a port visit there for an act of protest at the gates of the Chinese Naval HQ in Hong Kong. My reasons are thus: - China is directly responsible for the continuation of genocide in Darfur, supplying Sudan's terrorist regime with weapons, satellite intel,money and technical advice. They're doing it all for oil and to spite and undermine the US. - China is directly responsible for the brutal military regime in Burma (they call it Mynamar) continuing to hold power and ruthlessly deny the people of Burma their democratically elected freedoms and leadership.Ditto for North Korea. - China is stifling freedom and prosperity in Hong Kong, while threatening Taiwan. No one in my nation's leadership seems to care or even be much concerned about China's role in these tragedies and its larger implications for American and world security. I realize it would be an international incident perhaps, and it would probably get me some serious military jail time (both Chinese and American). My conscience is killing me though. I could stand fast and do this in a few more years as a civilian, but how many more lives will China's greed and hunger for power cost then? I feel inspired by those in the past who have called evil empires by their accurate descriptions (famous and lesser known, both ronald reagan and james bryce) So (a) how serious would my UCMJ trouble be (i've heard varied guesses from some folks here in Japan) (b) how big a headache would my actions be for the Navy and my command? (c) you probably think I'm crazy or stupid... i think i'm a bit of both but that's why I'm thinking things through and trying to hold this off until i'm a civilian?(three years from now) ... are there better alternatives to this that could do something more or matter more? thank you for even tolerating this level of stupidity and perhaps even giving a thoughtful reply to it.
