Maybe we should define "war". Apparently, its definition has been expanded over the last few decades, and become more rhetorical.
Are we "at war" with the "war on terror"? Literally, or rhetorically?
War used to be a declared state of aggression against another country. Now, we have the "war on terror", the "war on drugs", the "war on women", the "war on Christmas", ad nauseum.
Just because we spew forth the "war" rhetoric doesn't mean we really are at war. Hence, the standard rules regarding holding prisoners until the war is over do not apply. There is no war, in the correct and legal definition. It's just rhetoric to get the easily-led to fall into line and buy into things that they shouldn't buy into.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
