    Sorry, but those things are against international law (whatever that is?).

    Besides, these so called International Laws do not apply when some muslim pos is trying to kill Americans. Show me where they, these muslim pos, have that right under your so called International Law.

    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    It's kind of hard to condemn other countries for doing what we have done with captured combatants in the past 8 years.
    That's American foreign policy 101! We only get mad when it's done to us.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Which I said numerous times on PF. I even knew when the tables were turned we'd whine like we always do.

    Just be consistent. If you are going to ignore treaties and laws you agreed to, then fine. Just don't complain when the other guy does it. Stop pretending you care about human rights if you really don't.

    The other part also holds true. If you want to have standing in pursuing violations of internation law against U.S. troops captured in battle, you best follow it.

    Certainly. Because people tune you out when you talk the talk, but don't walk the walk. Makes sense. So would I.

    Yes, I am.

    I am a United States Marine Corps Officer (Retired). Why?

    Because I find it distressing that you apparently don't follow the Military Code of Conduct in regards to the treatment of enemy prisoners, or find it necessary, based upon the race/ethnicity/religion of the particular prisoner.

    That is not the standard that I'm used to with service members.

    REALLY? So we took prisoners and video taped them begging for their lives and threatened the other countries if they did not comply with our demands we would saw the hostages heads off while they screamed for mercy?

    You have to live on an alternate universe to make such farcical claims that we treated our UNLAWFUL combatants anything like these thugs. Shame on you; I expect much more from someone like you than your typical left leaning lunatic.
