Reason Number 97 We are Not a Bushtatorship

As I've noted before, sometimes I'm annoyed at the limits of who we are allowed to kill in this war. Via Instapundit, our favorite Colorado fake-Indian fraudfessor is at it again:

Churchill: "For those of you who do, as a matter of principle, oppose war in any form, the idea of supporting a conscientious objector who's already been inducted in his combat service in Iraq might have a certain appeal. But let me ask you this: Would you render the same level of support to someone who hadn't conscientiously objected, but rather instead rolled a grenade under their line officer in order to neutralize the combat capacity of their unit?"

As the good professor might note, simply not sending your child to the University of Colorado (whoops, excuse me while I turn off the vile Chris Matthews) just removes a potential cannon fodder from the fray. Firing a whackjob fraud teacher without any settlement pay has a much more impactful effect.

Can we call this treason or is that still unreasonable in this case?
