And I'm calling you a racist bigot because you said Khadr was a "child molester" who should have been killed like the rest.
aww, the then under age juvenile delinquent canadian citizen, that wanted to play the like he was a warrior for a god a child molester made up while hold up in a cave under a rock is getting sued for killing and wounding U.S. Service Men.
And you claim he was charged with war crimes? Buddy, if you think war crimes are the enemy killing your soldier in combat, then you have no clue what "war crimes" are. The whole Invasion of Afghanistan was a war crime. It was carried out on false pretences and had nothing to do with 9/11.
your wrong about this. no matter who you think planned, instigated, and executed 9/11, there is no doubt that members of al-qaeda were indeed involved.
The godfather of human rights laws, the Geneva Conventions, oblige all member states to act on grave breaches of human rights, but does not stipulate the age of criminal responsibility.
Robert Young, deputy permanent observer and legal adviser to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) based in New York, told IRIN international humanitarian law (IHL) remains “silent” on the age of responsibility for perpetrators of grave human rights abuses, such as wilful killing, torture and inhumane treatment.
International Criminal Court (ICC) Article 26 prevents the court from prosecuting anyone under the age of 18, but not because it believes children should be exempt from prosecution for international crimes, “but rather that the decision on whether to prosecute should be left to States,” says the Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) for children and armed conflict (Working Paper Number 3: Children and Justice During and in the Aftermath of Armed Conflict, September 2011). “[The] exclusion of children from the ICC jurisdiction avoided an argument between States on the minimum age for international crimes,” it noted.
The age of criminal responsibility varies from country to country, from 7-16, but the bar is most commonly set at 14.
Analysis: Should child soldiers be prosecuted for their crimes?
Explain your statement of Khadr being a, as you put it - a 'PEDO' & a Jihadist!?! Show some FACTS please - instead of spreading hate.

Nothing you've said is smart or witty. You only have shown your ignorance thus far. Also, yeah, maybe proper punctuation WOULD be best seeing as those of us who "lack skills" cant understand the point you're trying to make. Honestly, if you're going to attempt to come off as a know-it-all you should be typing in a manner that, at the very least, those of us fluent in English can understand.
You're no better than any other country, religion or people. Your way of thinking seems to have been programmed into you and any evidence presented before you, you brush off as though its nonsensical. Grow up and open your mind, the kids only 15 years old.
