    An unlawful enemy combatant is one who is fighting in civilian clothes with no badges of rank. When caught the captor owes you a length of rope or a bullet.
    No, the last time we declared war was WWII

    And true. If we throw away our resolve and morality, we disgrace the Republic.

    No it could not. And all that was required to stop the last one, was to have the two agencies talk to each other. No report has said invading anyone will stop it, or that torturing anyone will stop it, or that being immoral and more like terrorist will stop it.

    You seem to put a lot of faith in 'reports' and easily accept their contents. Is this really a good idea?

    Reports and logic, yes. I put them over your immoral "want be like terrorist" stance. Again, prove lives were saved.

    I can recognize lip service when I see and hear it. So it's so--the government does use 'lip service' as a common tool of manipulating the audience.

    We were attacked on 9/11. We counterattacked. That's war. Our enemies today killed over 100 school children. That's who we're fighting.

    We have not been attacked since 9/11 because our countermeasures were effective. And no, more interagency communication would not have stopped 9/11.

    I'm pretty sure the definition of 'counterattack' doesnt mean 'swinging wildly at anything that faintly resembles an attacker', which would be a good description of the war on Iraq.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
