Today, after a grueling 4 months battle, Raqqa is cleared of Islamic State filth. Trump changed the rules of engagement, bombing the # out of families of Islamic State warriors, their wives and kids, killed thousands, Raqqa in rubble. Something Obama would never do.

Nice, thousands of innocents dead and a few of the bad guys too. Obama didn't have the balls to kill thousands of innocent people and completely destroy their homes, such a disgrace! /sarcasm

And we wonder why the region has been radicalized. I'm sure whenever someone over there sees an American flag they think of terrorism. Can't say I blame them.

If true, then Trump and his administration would be guilty of war crimes in violation of the Geneva Conventions.


According to Common Article 3, people who are taking no active part in the hostilities "shall in all circumstances be treated humanely… To this end, the following acts are and shall remain prohibited at any time and in any place whatsoever … violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture."

In WW2 America bombed and killed millions of German and Japanese civilians. It's not something new.

That's why we have the Geneva Conventions, Einstein!


Geneva Conventions
The Geneva Conventions comprise four treaties, and three additional protocols, that establish the standards of international law for the humanitarian treatment of war. The singular term Geneva Convention usually denotes the agreements of 1949, negotiated in the aftermath of the Second World War (1939–45), which updated the terms of the first three treaties (1864, 1906, 1929), and added a fourth.

My hero.

Can't we just kill all the Muslims and burn every Koran and everything that quotes it?

Terrorists say the same thing about your family.

What makes you or us better if we do the same?

I know, and it was just as awesome back then as it is now! Japan is still feeling the effects in the areas we dropped the bombs on to this very day.

Those Japanese people should have thought twice before being born where they were born! Dumb innocent people, I can't belive they chose to be born there, lol. They deserved it for that alone.

Tell that to the terrorists who will kill you and your family because you're the "enemy."

Just like you're advocating.
