    You mean crimes according to ADK_Forever and a United Nations that prefers "stability" at any cost and rebukes the international courts calling for the genocidal maniac, Al-Bashir's, for fear of unsettliung humanitarian attempts in the wake of ignoring the massacre. Because I don't see any crimes. By the way, hear about those civilians that were murdered a few days ago by the U.S. military strikes under President Obama?

    And as above post some do.

    What are your thoughts to that?
    My thoughts are that you are being obtuse again. Taking the very few exceptions and holding them up as definition. I have yet to kill an American civilian, placed a person on the rack, and believe it or not...I have managed to keep myself from dropping a nuclear bomb on anybody. In fact, I can say that about everybody I know and every unit I have encountered. Therefore the understanding that our service men who are sent off to conduct the daily routine of warfare do not come back haunted, murderous, and doomed in our society. Argue for the few. I argue for the vast majority and the overwhelming rule.

    Thoughts?

    Wait...wait. I'll do your part for you. "You stated it as if it was 100 percent and I reminded you of Bragg, which means you were wrong." To which I retort, "My meaning was clear and if finding argument in the petty is all that is left to you, then accept some truth and move on." And I would go on to state that it is equally petty to say a person is wrong for stating that a barrel of apples is bad because there is an apple in there amongst the 60 that is good.

    OK. Now...thoughts?

    Bravo......

    But again, we all make the mistake of thinking that ADK is a rational person who cares about the truth don't we?

    Maybe he is a victim of our media.

    1) For twelve years Saddam Hussein's comings and goings were dictated by outside sources. For twelve years he was told where he could fly his jets over his own air space and we occupied parts of Iraq for humanitarian reasons against his wishes. YET....Bush gets to be appointed as the "soveriegn killer."

    2) After UN troops stood by and watched the slauhgter of hundreds of people in Bosnia, President Clinton shoved the UN aside, and used NATO to solve the problem. Then in 1999 President Clinton went against the wishes of the UN and bombed the hell out of Kosovo using parts of NATO to assist and the UN called it "illegal." YET...Bush gets to be labeled as the international criminal that defied the UN.

    The truth is clear. But, Bush hating became the political tool for Democrats and the fad for the weak minded.

    There could be a lot of truth to that, except the links he provides to support such inane assertions appear to indicate a willingness to seek out those sources that best fit his narrow, uninformed and myopic views of what constitutes criminal behavior.

    I am sure he will find a way to link Bush to Iranís and North Koreas desire to continue the development of a nuclear weapon and show how he allowed his friends in the evil weapons industry to profit from it.

    I guess a mod's warning doesn't apply to you, ehh? Is that the kind of example of behavior we're supposed to follow?

    Just curious.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    I guess that means the right to counsel is out the window. And you people love to jabber about "shredding the Constitution."

    Look...The truth here is very simple:

    Bush wanted to torture prisoners so he got a few bad apple lawyers to torture logic & the English language to say it was legal. (If Bush wanted to rob banks, these same lawyers would find a way to say bank robbery was legal)

    Get it?? ...It's really very simple, as the jury will eventually find.
