    I guess you have to say this. If it helps, good for you. But, you are nto addressing what was said or explaining anything.

    What war? Iraq is over. Not sure we're at war with Afghanistan. So what war is it we're waiting to be over?

    Explain. As we fought no country, no army, which combatants are lawful? Which unlawful? And how did you determine that?

    You already know. Nice try though.

    If you don't know consider starting with the Geneva Conventions.

    I do not believe we are holding any former members of the Iraqi military in PW camps.

    The war we hope will end is the war the Jihadists are waging against the west. But you already know that too.

    I'll care about the UN when they actually give a dang about human rights around the world.
