Following up on my previous polls, are Donald Trump, Barack Obama and George W. Bush war criminals? (Sorry this came so late)
Well one is. Trump hasn't started his war yet, but he will. It's a Republican tradition. As for Obama, his job was to clean up after Bush. So, possible but not likely.
I don't really think so, but even if they were I'd support it. Islamic terrorists only understand terror, throw it right back at them.
That being said Obama bombed the shit out of the Middle East and no one bitched about it.
American brutality in the Middle East is the number one terrorist recruiting tool
Actually it's Islam and following its teachings.
Yes, but Muslims don't just become radical. There needs to be a catalyst, and often times we provide that. Imagine somebody bombed your neighborhood because a few terrorists might be living there...how would you feel?
Here's a few important points as outlined by ISIS recruiting propaganda.
The West is degenerate. The West is secular. The West allows atheism to go unpunished. The western liberal media defends Islam but are also highly degenerate and act as useful idots.
If you are a young Muslim, especially one living in the west, you can secure your place in heaven (and this is according to Islamic texts) through Jihad. No matter what you've done or how you've behaved, martyrdom will save you.
Well exactly, Muslims are enacting Jihad against the West and it makes me hate them.
That's unfortunate. I don't hate anybody really, especially not whole groups of whom most are innocent
Good for you Bower. Doesn't make them not despise your very existence any less.
If you figure "Muslims are attacking the West, and I hate them for it", how can you not figure out "Americans are attacking Middle-Eastern villages, and the villagers hate them for it"? ISIS notwithstanding, most terrorists are just farmers or merchants that take up arms to protect their families and their homeland
I totally misworded that but I figure you get my point.
Actually, to clarify, I'm referring to insurgents, not terrorists
Alcerus makes a good point.
And kamden, great. I'm not the kind of person to hate somebody because they hate me

FDR was also a war criminal. Murdering civilians is never okay. And even if they didn't commit war crimes, they still did illegal wars.
And murdered civilians.
Except for all the ones they didn't. And what does my combat experience or lack thereof have to do with it?
I knew that already, and that's at least moderately not horrible. What is horrible is bombing the shit out of civilians.
I agree that human shields are bad but we shouldn't murder them to get to enemy combatants.
I was listening right up until the virtue signaling.
Ok, so there are special cases. But nobody we're going after is as bad as Hitler. And "wow you're cold" isn't any line of questioning or argument. It's just you virtue signaling.
