[JURIST] Following up this story reported in Paper Chase yesterday, the US military on Monday took disciplinary action against 18 soldiers who refused to go on a mission in Iraq, believing it to be too dangerous. Although the military refused to release details of the sanctions, Article 15 of the U.S. military code of justice gives commanders discretion to order brief detention of up to a month, loss of up to a month's pay, extra duties and loss of rank. The soldiers, part of the 343rd Quartermaster Company, disobeyed orders to take their unarmored fuel tankers on a supply run from southeastern Iraq to Taji, just north of Baghdad, on Oct. 13. The commander of the company was relieved, and other soldiers carried out the mission. Reuters has more.
