    However, common soldiers aren't included in that list. I was referring to POW's, not personnel tried in the Nuremburg Trials. Learn the difference, then get back with us. Thanks for playing.

    Did you actually read the link? I'll give you a tip, there are a few "common soldiers". Keep trying though, it's fun to see you move goal posts when you're proven wrong.

    I was referring to POW's, not personnel tried in the Nuremburg Trials.
    1) The people at Gitmo aren't POWs. 2) The Nuremberg Trials aren't the only ones included in that link. Did you actually read it? Cause it's sad to watch you own yourself.

    Learn the difference, then get back with us. Thanks for playing.
    Lmao, apdst, I'll give you one chance to be honest: Did you read the link and look at the people tried? If you did, your entire post is wrong. Please stop this. It makes you look really bad when you try and move the goal posts, then change what your posts say. Here, I'll make it easy for you if you can find which crime this belongs to:

    War crimes trials | After the War | The Thai–Burma Railway and Hellfire Pass

    In all, Australia conducted nearly three hundred trials, in which 924 Japanese servicemen were accused of war crimes. Of these, 644 were convicted and 148 were sentenced to death, although 11 had their sentences commuted.
    http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article....uleId=10007145

    In cases involving mass atrocities, the defendants were accused of crimes committed against Allied civilians and POWs in five concentration camps (Dachau, Mauthausen, Buchenwald, Flossenbürg, Nordhausen) and their subcamps (such as Mühldorf), as well as at the Hadamar psychiatric hospital. In these trials, the accused held official positions in the camps and were almost all members of the Nazi Party, one of its formations such as the SS (the elite Nazi guard), the SA (Nazi Storm Troopers), or the German military. A minority were civilian employees of the Third Reich while a few were concentration camp inmates themselves who had held privileged positions such as Kapos and block elders.

    Get back with us when you learn the difference between a prisoner, captured on the battlefield and a war criminal tried in a war Crimea trial. Thank you.

    Apdst, are you still trying? That you failed to even read the link tells us everything we need to know about you, however, I'll humor you:

    Graves Recall Executed German POWs - Los Angeles Times

    On a chilly hillside near a military prison, Wally Chilcoat places red silk flowers on 14 graves, those of the only German prisoners of war executed on American soil.
    All 14 German POWs had been court-martialed and found guilty of murder. On July 10, 1945, after Germany's surrender, five were hanged in an old warehouse elevator shaft at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks. They were convicted in Oklahoma for a murder at a POW camp there.
    Did you actually read the link? You're looking bad.

    Nobody said they did.

    Prior to 2002 we had 2 very large Al Qaeda attacks on this country, and Al Qaeda operatives spending years in this country plotting the death of Americans and destruction of our cities/buildings/infrastructure. What was the #1 recruiting tool that was used then?
    causation or coincidence? Do you have any evidence that it has made a difference? I think it has more to do with Al Qaeda on the run (in particular Bin Laden) because of our incursion into Afghanistan. Moreover, the issue is not with rounding up and sidelining a few unsavory characters, it is what we did with them that I object to....

    I will point out that Al Qaeda has made no attacks since the Patroits won their first Super Bowl either? causation or coincidence?

Plus ---- Al Qaeda won't use that as a recruiting tool. Right? (gosh... I hope that was the right guy!?! )

    Or maybe, we should just treat them like they would treat us.
    You are right about the drone strikes; you are wrong that America should play in the gutter.

    I don't know that much about the Barbary pirates. Maybe I should be outraged there as well, but it was 200+ years ago, so I forgive whoever abused their powers there.

    Thank you for find equivalence. Its a shame you had to dig back 200+ years to find it.

    A Progressive's analysis of historical events can be quite fascinating, if done in small doses..
