    How can one violate the Geneva Conventions when the Geneva Conventions don't apply to the people in question?

    You just won't answer the question because you know you would be the first standing up bitching that it was wrong.

    Why not just answer the question and see where it goes?

    Petraeus seem to think we did violate the convention. I would go with his expertise before I would think you were correct. I tend to side that he is correct. so would you be pissed if they were torturing US civilians in the name of the war on terror?

    No, I am ignoring the question because it does not answer the question I posed initially. I ask a question, you give an answer. Try it sometime...

    IMO, it's not the military's place to make or interpret policy. The military works for the civilian leadership and carries out all lawful orders they are given. They are not the 4th branch of government
    I think that he has lied about his Iraq policy. I have no problem with them calling him out on bull**** that is being done worng.

    So, rather than think for yourself, you simply differ to an authority figure?

    When did you get to be Petraeus. He must think that we have violated the convention. I don't care how big you type. You are more than likely still wrong.

    That's where we differ. The military needs to STFU about policy matters and leave it to the politicians and pundits.
