    Keep in mind that the harsh treatment dealt to Germany by the allies following WWI was a key factor in the rise of Nazi Germany. Helping Germany to rebuild her economy instead of vindictive retribution would've stopped Nazism from ever gaining power.

    Interventionism breeds war.

    Are the gitmo prisoners classified as prisoners of war, subject to the rights and protocols used for POWs?

    Too late now.

    Why is it that Bush never issued any "no quarter" orders?

    Because he was dropped on his head at birth? We all know he was retarded.

    The real question is: Why isn't Obama fixing what he promised to fix?

    Because he lied to get elected. These presidents are all pretty much alike.
