Peter Graff and Shan Ross at The Scotsman - Malcolm Kendall-Smith, a British RAF doctor refused to follow an order to deploy to Iraq. At his trial, he said that he had decided that the United States is acting like Nazis. [grabbe]
Kendall-Smith made his remarks amid a series of bitter exchanges with David Perry, prosecuting, at a hearing in Aldershot, Hampshire.
"As early as 2004 I regarded the United States to be on par with Nazi Germany as regards its activities in the Gulf," Kendall-Smith told the court.
Mr Perry, asking Kendall-Smith for clarification, said: "Are you saying the US is the moral equivalent of the Third Reich?"
Kendall-Smith replied: "That's correct."
He then continued: "I have documents in my possession which support my assertions.
"This is on the basis that ongoing acts of aggression in Iraq, and systematically applied war crimes, provide a moral equivalent between the US and Nazi Germany."
