LOAC Training

I recently completed my Law Of Armed Conflict training (it's an annual requirement). One paragraph in particular jumped out at me, and I wanted to pass it along because, as my friend Gabe would say, it's so dang awesome:

What should you do if you think you've been given an illegal order? First, ask for clarification. Maybe the order was unclear, or you didn't understand it.

If you still think the order is illegal, try to get it withdrawn.

If that doesn't work, you must disobey it.

First you need to find out why the person givin you the order does not think that it is illegal?
