    No hate, just rational recognition of reality.

    That's not for you to decide.

    Don't forget to read this article about America's contribution to the preservation of world peace World’s Most Evil and Lawless Institution | Dissident Voice
    It certainly supports the argument that the USA is the "greatest" in the world when it comes to the killing of innocent people over the last 50 years.

    Because it nicely illustrates how the term "war crime" is distorted to be used as a simple slur. And of course also because a lot of it is the usual anti-American drivel of the most base and primitive nature.

    Do you adhere to the reasoning developed in the piece you linked to?

    These are quotes from the article which relate directly to the issue of whether or not the USA's killings in Vietnam and Iraq were war crimes:

    "It is also undeniable that it has committed countless acts, as no less an authority than U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry noted in regard to Vietnam, which have been: “contrary to the laws of the Geneva Convention, and… ordered as established policies from the top down,” and that “the men who ordered this are war criminals.”

    And its crimes against humanity have continued since Vietnam. Thirty years later, a Nuremberg prosecutor speaking of the U.S. invasion of Iraq stated that a “prima facie case can be made that the United States is guilty of the supreme crime against humanity, that being an illegal war of aggression against a sovereign nation.”

    I can't argue with this kind of reasoning. Is it enough for you to accept that perhaps the USA is not the "greatest" country?

    You are free to believe in such blatant stupidity if you want. Clearly, following your reasoning, Franklin D. Roosevelt was the greatest war criminal in US history and US engagement in World War II was a massive series of war crimes.
