    Clarification. In the begining they we speaking mostly of white land holders, but not divided by citizenship (I was a poli Sci maor for awhile).

    You may want to check on a refund.... The USC applies to US citizens and those within it's jurisdiction.

    If there isn't a definitive difference between righteous killing and murder/assassination, why does the military have Rules of Engagement for enemy combatants?

    What I quoted was the Declaration of Independence. It states our beliefs. We don't have the option of ignoring rule of law just because the person we're dealing with isn't a citizen.

    See, the fundamental flaw with your interpretation of the DoI, as well as the US Constitution, is that you believe that the founders were speaking to the entirety of mankind when making that declaration. They were not, in fact they were speaking of man from the prism of being subjects of the British crown, and subjected to its strangling taxation therefore.

    You don't ascribe to American exceptionalism, but when it suits your bleeding heart you want to extend the rights fought for, and blood shed for to those who would rather see our throats cut over a religious doctrine mired in the 7th century. That to me suggests a certain self loathing of ones own country as ignoble, and you display shame for being a citizen. Yet, recognizing the inherent level of living you enjoy here, you would never relocate to any other country that may more closely mirror your own view of 'how things should be'...

    The fact of the matter is that extending those rights which we hold self evident are not extended, nor believed in by those individuals you wish to protect. And as an after thought, I personally think it is a despicable position you place yourself in to totally forego, the justice for the 3300 killed by this man on 9/11 so you can ease your own moral conscience.
