    Is that possible?

    If someone ran off with another military I wouldn't call it treason unless that military became in conflict with the United States and that person fought against us.

    Well take in account for example.

    Person runs off to another country's which is different idologically, and serves their military. Who is he loayal to?

    If no war.


    Whats the difference if there is war or not? With conflicts popping out around the world, you can never tell.

    One day you're not a traitor and the next day you are, just because of few words of declaration of war?

    this was brought up in another thread, when a couple of people said they would fight for israel but not for the US (they were US citizens). personally, i think if someone is that loyal to a foreign country, they should renounce their US citizenship and become a citizen of that country.

    basically, i expect US citizens to be 100% loyal to their country, but that's just me.

    I would say that its not treason if they join an Allies army (with permission of course, No permission would be AWOL)

    Now if they join the Enemy, well God help himif he gets caught :rl:

    exactly. if for whatever reason joined the foreign legion tomorrow that wouldnt be treason. (obviously because france is an ally of the US).

    however, if someone who HAS NOT denounced his citizenship fights against his homeland then that is treason.

    i have personally served in a british cadet unit despite not being british myself. and quite frankly, i dont consider myself a traitor.

    Isnt that against the "law"???

    Whats weird is that like buncha people will join US military but that wont get em citizenship. I think if they sign up, lets say full-time, they at least should be given that in return.

    It happened in WWII, before the US entered the war, US pilots were going to England and were flying combat missions against Germany with the RAF.

    if they want to fight for us, that's fine with me. don't most of them seek US citizenship anyway? either way, i have absolutely no problem with it and could care less as long as they work hard and do their job.

    my comment was directed at US citizens who decide to fight for other countries.

    I consider that to be a treason toward Ukraine.

    I would rather be shot, then serve for country other then Russia/Ukraine.

    if it were treason, what would you do about dual citizens?

    if it were treason, if they served in either nation's military they would be committing treason in the other.
