How can anyone honestly bring up the Geneva Convention when our ENEMIES don't even abide by it? Give me a break.

We incarcerate more innocent people than any nation in the world
We incarcerate more foreign nationals than any nation in the world
We have been responsible for wars in other nations more than any nation in the world. Your statement isn't very accurate
And these are the massive problems of the US?
1.) We give the most money out of any nation to countries in need.
2.) We usually use our military to help other countries
3.) we constantly dish people or countries out of trouble
4.) we Constantly mediate on worldwide events and try to settle for peace
-We have been responsible for [more??] wars in other nations more than any other nation in the world?? Ok lets see Germany alone in WW2 attacked Franch, Poland, Russia, England, Norway, Finland, Belgium, Netherlands, and annexed Austria and Hungary. We, most of the time, help other countries not invade them. Same with Britain and the French
(OH ya i forgot you cant say "we" if you are not an US citizen)

It is now time to employ Full out warfare tactics, it is time we use what we used in ww2. A full out war, bombing everything taht we needed to bomb to achieve our goal. We should NOT hold back any longer. We will destroy EVERYONE associated with terrorists and once we CRUSH their backbone of support THEN they will collapse. I am sick and tired of hearing about how the terrorist just "blend" back into their society and they are EXTREMELY hard to catch. Someone must know about these terrorist and its about time we start killing the Associates.

So as an analogy could b
"alright there was a murderer found living on 5th street, so i guess that means we have to arrest everyone on 5th street to prevent more murders"

You want to destroy all terrorists and save the innocents? Okay. You scare a lot of people. You're terrorizing this board and my otherwise perfect world with your ignorance and bloodlust. That makes you a terrorist (look it up if you don't already know the definition).
On a side note, if you remember Fallujah, there was nothing held back. Broadside after broadside unleashed by the spectre gunships, raining down on civilian infrastructure and terrified women and children doesn't qualify as 'restraint.'
- Let's see maybe the fact that we gave them a month to get out of there before we said we would start shelling their town would be a good restraint.
Also its not like we napalmed the city or firebombed it (like we did to 250,000 German civilians in ww2) We went street to street fighting like "gentlemen", we didnt crash through their houses with our tanks etc.
And you know what?? these people brought it upon themselves- they harbored the terrorists there for several months before we can after them- maybe if they had a brain and a sense of survival- they wouldnt have allowed the terrorists to fester there for so long.
