A few people have been stopping by my blog and making ignorant statements based on a profound lack of understanding of the past and present actions of the United States government, as well as international treaties (not to mention human psychology etc).
I hope that the following links should help clear up that lack of understanding, and that anyone who wishes to post here would at least take the time to peruse these links and try to gain some understanding before ignorantly aggravating both myself and the other readers and commenters on my blog.
U.S. Foreign Policy in the Periphery: A 50-Year Retrospective.
The Laws of War.
and for good measure, to hopefully head off the childish "good versus evil" types:
and last but not least; Terrorist.
Please think before you type. If you're not sure about what you're saying, then go double check first before making yourself look like an idiot, because odds are, I will illustrate your lack of understanding.
There is intelligent discourse to be had here. Valid points to be made. But bickering with ignorant morons who lack any real understanding of the larger issues involved here is a waste of time. For instance, touching on the fact, based on an actual knowledge of the Laws of War, that the "terrorists" are not abiding by them... which leads into a more in-depth look at exactly why the "terrorists" are led to use the means they do to wage their war, and why they not only do not follow the Laws of War, by why they cannot follow them. That is the kind of discussion that merits the time and attention of both myself and my readers.
