    Well, I guess there's nothing to say to that, you clearly do not believe in the geneva convention, the rules of war, or even downright dignity, but at least you admit it.


    In Afghanistan, if there were insurgents hiding in a local village, we would engage the insurgents in the buildings that they were hiding, using the maximum necessary force possible. We did not, however, drop a MOAB and level the entire village, killing 200 people to get to 20 insurgents. You can not use the guise of war to do whatever the hell you want. There are just, and unjust killings.

    You condone the intentional killing of civilians, and I accuse you of having no honor whatsoever.
    Right. And another unjust killing were the troops at Pearl Harbor that were sacrificed.

    "Historians are still arguing over whether President Franklin Roosevelt knew in advance that Japanese forces were about to launch a devastating attack against the U.S. Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941.

    Mr. Roger A. Stolley, a resident of Salem, Oregon, has something important to add to this discussion. In the following essay, which first appeared in the Salem daily Statesman Journal, December 7, 1991, he provides personal information to confirm that Roosevelt not only anticipated the Japanese attack, but specifically ordered that no steps be taken to prevent it. (Mr. Stolley's essay is reprinted here with grateful permission of the author.)

    John Toland, the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian who addressed the October 1990 IHR conference in Washington, DC, tells us that Stolley's essay "rings true."

    If by necessary, you mean they weren't the only option available, you're correct. The other option was to put 1 million American troops on the ground to invade the Japanese mainland, costing hundreds of thousands of American lives and killing more civilians than the two nukes killed, combined.

    Not to mention, that the Japanese were very close to fielding a nuke and had even gotten so far, as to plan a test detination for 12 August 1945.

    So, in the sense avoiding another 2+ years of war and hundreds of thousands of American casualties and probably millions of Japanese casualties, it was very necessary.

    Re: Bush and Blair found guilty of war crimes for Iraq attack

    Are they all govmnt stenographers? The most censorship by the Lamestream media on any particular subject in some time. Libya, all the liberal talk hosts hope to ignore the subject and then hope for a quick Obama victory. Then, they will all in unison boast a victory for the Party and defend this horrendous illegal invasion, saying "See - the President made the right decision."

    Oh gee - look on the Ed Schultz show on 8.25.11 - did I call it or what?

    "Ben Adler from the Nation joins the 2nd hour of Thursday's show to tell us how the conservative media are losing their minds now that Obama has another foreign policy victory under his belt"

    What a fine intellectual comment, from a stellar individual. Not. Sheesh. Maybe this whole internet thing was a bad idea.
