And yah, BOOOO on war crimes: war sucks, it sucks inherently and without remission… and should always be a last resort, fought only between willing combatants.
PS: They used to call those “Christian Values”, and justify the superiority of Western Civilization over (everybody else) by the adherence of the European nations to rules of warfare regulating combat and seeking to avoid harm to civilians.
So how does one describe “willing combatants” in terms of people who, by example, now have come to accept the US is going to unilaterally bomb them with overwhelming technologically supreme force and they don’t care and are resigned to it because they know it’s what we do?
Chelsea nee Bradley Manning went over like a lead balloon on Facebook and white America. The story for them is she betrayed the country because she was an addled transexual suffering from homo panic and other mentally clouding things. No, it would never have occurred to Pvt. Manning that copying gigs of intel off the SIPRNET could result in life in prison because she was ailing from the illness of transition.
