    And? He was a prominent figure in Afghanistan dating back to the Soviet occupation. His birth place is irrelevant. As far as not being Taliban, his ALQ provide thousands of troops that enabled the establishment of the Taliban.

    How does this tie in with Americans committing war crimes on camera? Again!

    I don't believe in hell, but I do believe in the rule of law. The US Field Manual (1956) provides that “maltreatment of dead bodies” is a war crime

    Oh sk it's not a "war crime" as you hysterically claimed. It's in an old field manual you found at a garage sale. Noted.


    Can youpost tthe exact text. I'd like to see where it says having your picture take. With a se weed elbow makes you a war criminal.

    The US Instructor’s Guide (1985) states: “In addition to the grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions, the following acts are further examples of war crimes: … mutilating or mistreating dead bodies”.

    Why are you so desparate to call us war criminals?


    What is a "US instructors guide"?

    Can you provide a link to this "instructors guide"?

    Thanks


    Oh wait, you got it here:

    I don't think we did that. They were largely in Pakistan, the place where found OBL.

    But the fact remains, AQ functions even within the borders of our allies. being in Afghanistan has not deterred that to any serious degree. it is quite expensive to invade and nation build compared to the possible results.

    As DHN points out, declaring war on a strategy is not the most logical or effective way to approach the situation. Nor is it logical to invade countries when the enemy is really a group that has no link to any country, but can be found in nearly every country.

    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.

    Please show "taking pictures with"... Thanks... "other mistreatment" is ambiguous, so much so, the timid, like to suggest a stern look at a savage taliban would be a war crime....
