The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
You're entirely wrong. I don't thin George Bush is the "greatest war criminal." All war criminals are dogs in my eyes. George Bush just happens to be the greatest American war criminal, and he is a stain on my country, that's why I care so much about seeing him brought to justice. If we can prosecute our own war criminals because they wield such corrupt influence, how can we expect other countries to keep to a standard of human rights when we can't even mind our own yard?
Oh, really? Well which international war criminals do you feel should be tried in Belgium ahead of George Bush?
If you believe in American Exceptionalism, why would you want George Bush tried in Brussels?The difference between you and me is that I believe in American Exceptionalism, whereas you are a cynic. Have a nice day!

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
See my statement above. Further, enemy combatants are protected; not terrorists.2. It is protected as it is torture.
3. Some techinques simply work better. I posted some testimony on the other thread.Please list what's morally right about killing civilians. (Our drones) Oh, wait, must be because we "try real hard not to." There's very little morality in a war. And when there is, I personally would much rather we apply that compass to civilians rather than to terrorists who would chop off our heads.Also, legal protection is not equal to being morally right. Nor does it mean they did not break the law when they did it. it just means we're not going to prosecute them. And it would be unfair to do so without prosecuting those who allowed it, encouraged it, including the president of the US at the time.
Thank you, Quazi!
