I think we should carpet bomb any capitalist nation which possesses nuclear weapons or the means to produce them!
See, the statement above is nearly as idiotic as your statement was.
Of course, not quite as idiotic, because I can promise you that in the last hundred years, more people have died as a result of war for pure capital
gain, than they have as a result of religious persecution. It's an actual fact.
Oh, and while we are about the subject, yes, the War On Terror is fake, all the major terror groups of the last God knows how long have been

Given that, I find your lack of willingness to see the job done cleanly particularly gutless.
It's one thing to dispassionately destroy non combatants so that you can get to an enemy, but quite another to do the same thing in a situation that
your own government had a deliberate hand in the creation of. Such callous disregard for your governments culpability level, in terms of the creation
of the terror, not just the war upon it. You may not realise it, but it makes America look pathetic and weak when its citizens refuse to accept that
their government has a responsibility, both to its own people, and the people of the world, to do the right thing toward those it has wronged.

it has that exceptionalism stuff, which renders it immune to concerns like ethics, morality, right and wrong, legality and other such things.
Pathetic. Try another tack.
