    You asked a question, you received a valid answer.

    Your refusal to recognize the validity of the truth is why no one takes YOU seriously.

    So let's see....you're going to become a geek in political science...except that particular species of geek prefers the word "wonk", as if that makes any difference, and you're now confessing ignorance of the role firearms in the hands of the citizenry play in the establishment and perpetuation of free societies, such as umm....you ever hear of the great republic known as the United States of America?

    Not too popular these days. There were riots when these elected officials went home to confront their constituencies with what they hoped was a done health care scam deal. And it seems the Messiah's pull at the polls can't carry any passengers, as the elections last month showed conclusively.

    No, first off, I've made no such comparison in the post you're responding to, and if I had made such a comparison, ..... ummmm....who was it that fired GM's CEO again? Oh, yes, that was a fascist act by YOUR Messiah. Who appointed "pay czar"? Oh, yes, that was a fascist act by YOUR Messiah, too.

    So, if I was going to start making historical comparisons with Mussolini, I've the factual basis to do so.

    So the yolk's on you.

    uh yuk yuk yuk.

    No one gives a **** about their feelings, if the mistake of socialism can be avoided in the United States.

    Ask if I give a ****. That's the important question.

    And so long as MY freedoms are preserved, I don't give a **** about their feelings or thoughts.

    Welcome to the real America, something you ain't gonna find on no college campus.

    Yeah, and I graduated from college, so it's not like slackers taking poly-sci or "international relations" are impressing me.

    Nope, don't give a ****.

    If they want to protest to become slaves, that's their problem, not mine, not until they take up arms to become my oppressor.

    How much "higher education" does it take to send the bullet where it needs to go? Heck, the military trains the best damn nuclear reactor operators in the world, and they have nothing but your basic high school diploma to start with.

    And tanks and airplanes are far less complicated than nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers.

    Not that it's anything unusuall. Your Messiah is giving them the opportunity to have a Defense by Diatribe in New York.
    If siding with Rule of Law is "siding with the terrorists", so be it. Rule of Law is the foundation this country was founded on, more than any other factor. I hope that they get off for something like this, but if it violates the USMJ, so be it. Those are the rules. I'm sorry, but you're arguing against the basis of all republicanism if you argue against Rule of Law in all situations.

    Since you're obviously not an American, from what basis are you whining about freedom?
    Wow,looks like you got a express shipment of ad homs on cyber monday eh?

    Look at my post number # 62, then take another look at the "Eddie Adams" photo(who later apologized to General Nguyen) then tell me it wasn't propaganda for Charlie.

    By the way this "American" was in country at the time this photo was taken.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Not when those laws are over-used to the point that an American soldiers is afraid to pull the trigger on a bag guy, because he might be charged with some chicken **** war crime.

    It's a war, people get killed, people get hurt, deal with it.

    Then you change the rules, plain and simple.

    The USMJ isn't the authority on how American troops should treat unlawful combatants, AKA, Jihadist terrorists; that is reserved to the Geneva Conventions.

    I thought it was not the jurisdiction of the Geneva Conventions

    Or, stop over-interpreting the rules. An even better idea would be to start interpreting the rules as they are written rather than what you want them to be. Or, even better than that, stop inventing war crimes and using our servicemen as pawns, just so you can try to convict the sitting president of some BS war crime. Ball's in your court, now.

    You thought wrong! A point I've been making for years, now.
