    Is the United States a terrorist nation?

    Consider Shock and Awe that started the invasion of Iraq and the various drones we have launched.

    I consider mass killings and bombings to be polite diplomatic actions.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    I would definitely be interested to hear why the same tactics are acceptable for some and not for others. If we want the moral high ground, we need to find nonviolent solutions to our problems, not try to show why our violence is acceptable and others' isn't.

    A lovely ideal, but the world isn't very cooperative for it. Ask ISIS how they feel about implementing non-violent solutions. Get back to us with their answer... assuming they don't lop off your head just for being there...

    Because we have the greater, more important, and infinitely more moral objective. We are allowed to be hypocritical in pursuit of victory. It isn't about fairness--it's about winning. A democratic new world order will be built, in part, upon violence. Why we fight is just as important as how we fight.

    As if violence alone compromises the moral high ground. Iraqi's dying as a result of an invasion in which we subsequently ousted a dictator and handed the country over to its people does not make us moral equals with the dictator merely because both happened to employ violent measures along the way. That's child-like logic that cannot be taken seriously.
