    Sure you can. We just don't do that. Take 9/11 for instance. We went in and attacked Afghanistan and Iraq. Neither had a chance in hell of defending themselves against us and our weapons designed for the Cold War. We entirely ignored Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, the places that actually trained, financed and supplied the 9/11 bombers. Why? Because they have nukes and can actually stand up to us.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    sorry, but we did NOT "attack" Afghanistan.

    we went in there to remove a hateful, violent, extremist, totalitarian, and horrible regime.

    this is why I fully supported the invasion of Afghanistan, and support us keeping troops there an infinitum..until the job is done and the people have a chance at a real future with an ounce of freedom.

    Iraq, well that was just Junior finishing the job that his Daddy very smartly chose not to do.

    ......wow, you really think our fighting men are a bunch of bumbling, backwards, backwoods, bumble****s.
    First, Lieutenants rarely get asked anything of importance, second, we're talking about how soldiers should be punished. Unless it's defined in rule, regulation or law....it's not prosecute-able. So, define it.

    Mostly we are talking about the hysterical responses of ninnies and weak sisters in the United States to the notion that maybe in wartime sometimes we are not nice to the enemy. It seems that many have failed to grasp that "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" does not really gel with "also, kill them".

    However, I'm pretty sure this is prosecutable. Good Ole Article 134.

    We certainly did. Just because you think our actions were justified does not mean that we didn't invade Afghanistan.

    What they did that is a chargeable offense is violation of General Order 1 in that that took pictures of a human casualty. That's it, that is all. The rest of it is simply "ninny hysteria" as CP aptly called it.

    pretty funny.

    I say "we didn't attack Afghanistan".

    and you respond with "we invaded Afghanistan".

    the USA invaded France during WW2. Were we attacking France....or attacking the NAZIS in France?

    We invaded Afghanistan and we made war on Afghanistan. The Taliban was Afghanistan's government....not an occupying force from another country.

    did the USA recognize the Taliban as the legitimate and rightful rulers of Afghanistan?

    the Taliban were no more the rightful rulers of Afghanistan than the Vichy govt. was the rightful rulers of France.

    We attacked France. Germany had troops forward deployed there, certainly. This was a particularly bad example for you to use, given that France actually spent more time in WWII fighting on the side of the Axis than they did on the side of the Allies.
