    an amazingly foolish one. whether or not a military operation is an "attack" apparently is dependent on whether or not you think that you are legitimized in doing it.

    the fact is that the USA recognized Saddam's regime for quite some time.

    if you deny this, you are 100% wrong.

    Isn't the entire point of a military attack that the offensive country doesn't consider the defending country legitimate? Isn't that like, the entire point of it?

    BTW I'm shocked we agree on something for once, BRB gonna go cry in the shower.

    Saddam "ran" unopposed in every election in Iraq held since he came to power. How was that legitimate?

    China doesn't recognize Taiwan....does that mean they are illegal and illegitimate?

    Terrorism is not a crime. It is a tactic used in war by insurgents who are already at war, even though the target may not know it.

    So then say. "These soldiers did not commit war crimes"



    But lets review. You think we should "condemn" these soldiers, but respect the dead Taliban savages that tried to kill them.

    Fact.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    no, terrorism is a crime. Every state in the Union lists it as an individual crime.....with its own set of punishments.
