Well, lets see about this and give it some considered though....

How about

Don't be so bloody stupid.

If your idea of defeating terrorism is to brutalise potential innocents, then you are no better than a terrorist, because you are fuelling extremism from both sides.

Does that put your family on the table?

Thanks for the replies. I stand by the fact that if they put them in harms way that there is nothing else we can do during war. Kill a terrorist family while he is not there or using them for protection...of course not.

Believe they already are that's how terrorism works. Terrorists by their very nature target civilians and that means everyone's family is on the table. Question becomes how far should you go to protect them?? And at what point is your families lives not worth the cost??

I fully agree that no President should be able to do this as same would constitute a crime against humanity and would be in violation of international law. It speaks volumes about trump that he would advocate "lets kill their families."

Ditto regarding Cruz's plan to carpet bomb the M.E.!
