    and who gets to declare someone as an unlawful combatant and therefore undeserving of any human rights?


    you?

    So, you beleive then that the Afghans are responsible for the actions of the Taliban and share in the repsonsibility for the attacks on 9/11?

    Which one are you talking about now?

    The US, a democracy, is the most war mongering country in recent history. We go to war to establish world hegemony. When is the last time we fought a war to defend against invaders, the 1800's?
    Which democracies have the US "war mongered" on?

    Perhaps you care to explain yourself, brother.


    It's a funny thing, Boo (seeing you skipped over this post), I did a search and I can't find you making these same irrellevent statements about "lowering the standards" et al, in threads on bradley manning, etc...

    why do you feel it's important to this thread to make these statements, that makes it not important in other threads? Do you have any evidence these soldiers entered through the waiver system?

    oh, and a soldier in the field carries a copy of the Geneva Convention at all times, and uses it to decide which enemy gets to surrender and be held as a POW, and which one should have his head blown off?

    the fact is that it takes a bit of homework to declare someone a true unlawful combatent.

    And BTW, these people hardly qualify as human beings after what they've done. They're ****ing animals, and if you don't see that, then there's pretty much no hope for you.

    My mother in law would gladly double tap one of the ****ers in front of a TV crew. Doubt she'll ever get the chance, but you never know. I'm sure people like you would be scrambling to bring her up on UCMJ and throw her ass to the dogs of the world court, but she wouldn't give a **** - that would be one less ****head who will go around lopping innocent people's heads off.
    Just who is included in this category of people who hardly qualify as human beings and who, therefore, we need to hunt down and kill? Is it all Iraqis? Afgans? All people in the ME? Anyone who doesn't like what the US has done in the ME? Does it include women and children as well? Is it anyone who is a devout Muslim? Just how broad is this "people who hardly qualify as human" category? Just wondering.

    The Taliban weren't responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Afghanistan didn't attack us at all. Just to make sure you know, those who attacked us came from mostly SA. Money for it came from SA and Pakistan. It's a large leap to link Afghanistan to 9/11.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You are kidding right? Taliban harbored and gave safe sanctuary to al qaeda, protected them to the point of war. You are being serious? no..... way...
