    So is Clinton. So is Roosevelt. There is no president who has ordered military action that has not sometimes involved injury or death to innocent bystanders.

    •  It depends on circumstances (0+ / 0-)

      When it is deliberate targeting of civilians, it is a war crime, and there is no excuse for it.

      And if you excuse that, you're excusing and condoning murder. Since advocating murder is hide ratable... donuts.

      •  Oh, what bollocks (0+ / 0-)

        I really don't understand how anyone could read my actual comment as condoning murder. What you've done is to HR me for comments you imagine I might write in the future. Nicely done!  I've seen quite a few abuses of ratings privileges, but never anything quite so overwrought as that.

          But the point stands: The Obama administration condoned targeting of first responders and attendees of funerals, in the theory that more "terrorists" would be among those who came in to help the wounded, or attend the funeral.

          I find this practice to be deliberate murder. And it is a war crime. And the UN Special Rapporteur agrees.

          •  Seems I can't remove it now, the time (0+ / 0-)

            allotted must have just expired. Button didn't work.
