Validating courses usna

(I hate Eng) Also, I noticed that many people have complained about Chem I and II being the "plebe killer", I've had Chem Honors in my high school, and it wasen't hard at all. The goal was to underscore the significance of the instructions/terms of reference for model course developers to ensure that the course content must align directly with the STCW Code, as amended, without omission and without addition of extraneous content. foreign policy goals, and improves the international presence of both U. This is probably where Fury could get to “war crime.” His argument would be that the Avengers were the less destructive way to end the threat, and could probably get there. Under this idea, and under a ‘defense of others’ type defense, it seems like Fury would both have a duty and a legal defense to shooting down his guys. If they’re in agreement that he is trying to prevent a war crime, I suppose they don’t have to do anything. The US distinguishes a patently illegal order as one which orders someone to commit a crime.If they think he is committing murder and/or violating a lawful order, they obviously have a duty to report the crimes, and they most likely would have a duty to try to prevent him from killing people and stopping the mission, though my knowledge for this portion is admittedly a bit thin.” Jason, Former Captain, U. Some of the most famous cases dealing with someone who should have disobeyed an order because it was illegal are that of Lieutenant William Calley at the My Lai massacre in Vietnam (dramatically interpreted by the movie ” (Interestingly, the soldier who gave Keenan the order, Corporal Luczko, was acquitted by reason of insanity). The Council could argue necessity, but necessity is a “lesser of two evils” defense, and letting the Avengers handle the situation was even less of an evil than the nuclear strike.So in order to write posts we first do research, usually beginning with higher-level secondary sources ( encyclopedias, treatises, law review articles) and then moving on to primary sources (e.g. With a military law question like this, however, we were a bit stuck, so we turned to our readers for help, and you came through in spades.

Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) Professor in the Department of Marine Transportation, Capt. Edenfield ’79, USMS, served as technical advisor on education and training issues for the U. delegation to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Third Session of the Sub-Committee on the Human Element, Training and Watchkeeping (HTW 3) meeting in London earlier this month. In addition to Edenfield ’79, the delegation included Mr. This was the fourth consecutive year that Edenfield was asked by the U. Medina remarked, “George has been the nucleus of our U. delegation to IMO for the review of the existing model courses and development of new model courses implementing the convention requirements. Merchant Maritime Academy, and supports the Academy’s Strategic Plan Cutting Edge Programs Maritime Partnership and Policy Action. We received offers of assistance from multiple current or former military lawyers, and we’re excited to put them together here.Before we get to that, though, first a disclaimer: These lawyers are speaking only for themselves; they are not speaking for the military or the Department of Defense. The Military Law Approach Nick, a military lawyer, responds: “So, obviously UCMJ jurisdiction (as you pointed out) is questionable, but perusing the wikipedia article on SHIELD, it appears it might be military (Nick Fury was once identified as a Colonel, plus they have that flying aircraft carrier, so we’ll go with that).However, even when you balance this against the alien army that is setting out to conquer the earth, you probably get there on that point (and I’m not just saying that because I’m a Red Sox fan). There isn’t a lot of case law on this that I’m aware of, but some secondary sources (the Medina court martial, primarily) suggest that a commander who has knowledge of one of his own people committing a war crime has a duty to act to stop it. An illegal order can be in violation of general legality, such as orders to commit hazing on troops, orders to abuse trainees, an order to go beyond the speed limit in a military vehicle.

The other piece of analysis would be whether there is a less destructive way to accomplish the military goals. Current regulations that I pulled today only reference a duty to report war crimes, so I think we would call this a customary duty. To a certain point, I guess it depends on how they see this. A patently or manifestly illegal order applies generally, but not exclusively to the protection of persons (civilians, prisoners, medical personnel and clergy), medical facilities, places of prayer, monuments, etc.
