    Name calling isn't really productive, neither is pompous arrogance.

    That these pricks choose to fight from schools, hospitals, Mosques, use human shields like an Amsterdam hooker uses condems, and don't wear uniforms or fight for a country... that is the game they chose to play... for that we have an answer.

    We wait until we can declare victory.
    Then tribunals, but not a second before.

    For those caught in the fog of war... sorry... just be happy it was Americans that you're dealing with.

    .
    I disagree. That was the normal way of doing things in war-time, finish the war then conduct the war trails. However, unlike WW2, where the last US-led war crimes trails were conducted there will be no clear end to the War on Terrorism. AQ or the Taliban won't just surrender like Germany did, I could see a time perhaps that Afghanistan was stable and AQ, the Taliban and other likeminded groups are merely fringe groups with no real power or ability to act. But that is so far off, and I'm worried we'd be sitting on these people for another decade while we try to decide if anything in the last 10 years counts as the "end of the war."
