But, but, Poppo, is Boehner not a small-gov't republican like Rogue just stated? That's why he vetoes anything that comes his way, except of course his salary and emoluments and adjourning the House before Sandy victims get their aid package voted. Oh, and making sure airports are open for long-weekend travel,having let ordinary taxpayer passengers stew for over a week.

I was talking about Neutrality and the Haque Conventions and why we have the right to go into any country on this earth to pursue illegal enemy combatant. And if any country tries to stop us, we have the right to declare war on them too.
Uruguay has 72 to kick the Gray Spee out of their country. If they had not, the British had every right to enter their country and kick azz!
We had every right to enter both Afghanistan and Pakistan to pursue members of al Qaeda.
Please indicate NOW where and when I wrote anything about the right or not the right to go into Pakistan to get Bin Laden. Cripes, I applauded Obama's daring move. As to Afghanistan, well, you're right of course, you have the right to pursue illegal enemy combatants. This is why I've long asked why you didn't attack Saudi Arabia where 16 of the 18 terrorists came from. Answer, please.

Oh, saw in the paper this morning, 700 dead in Iraq in July alone. Still two days to go. How does this compare with Saddam's rule, Rogue? Do you think ole Saddam would've had to put in some overtime to match that tally? Oh, Al Qaeda is very active, as you can see, as are Iranian agents all over Iraq. Tell us again, Rogue, was Al Qaeda and Iranians present in Iraq during Saddam's reign? How were the Catholics doing in Iraq in the Saddam days compared to today, Rogue? Except for a few Iraqi gangsters (called businessmen over there), who is better off in Iraq today, Rogue? Those not getting killed or avoiding getting killed by hiding. Tell us all about it, Rogue. Oh, btw, Iraq was the buffer against Iran. What country is that buffer now, Rogue?

Yes, the UN authorized it back in 1991! Again, you can only end a war one of two ways. A capitulation or a peace treaty. There was in intervention into hostilities in 1992 but under the conditions that Saddamn would do certain things and he violated 27 UN mandates. Ergo Bush-43 had every right to resume the war!!!
Next, they were right for getting out just as soon as Saddamn was gone.
And we should have left too at that time as there is nothing we can do to reprogram their minds which calls for them to kill anyone who disagrees with them.
Poor apologist. And a weak one too.

If 2003 invasion of Iraq was but a continuation of 1991 Gulf war, please explain why resolution to invade Iraq was debated in the UN AND presented and voted upon in the U.S. Congress. Go ahead, please.

Oh my my, they hate Halliburton and KBR so bad, they would rather contract with al Qaeda!
U.S. Army won't bar contractors linked to Afghan insurgents -watchdog By Susan Cornwell
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- The U.S. Army has refused to bar 43 individuals or companies from getting U.S. contracts in Afghanistan despite information that they support the Taliban or other enemies of U.S. forces, a government watchdog said on Tuesday.
John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction (SIGAR), said he was concerned by the Army's refusal to follow his office's recommendations to prevent alleged supporters of the Taliban, the Haqqani network and al Qaeda from getting or keeping U.S. government contracts.
"I am deeply troubled that the U.S. military can pursue, attack and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the U.S. government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract," Sopko wrote in an introduction to his office's quarterly report on the U.S. reconstruction effort in Afghanistan.
The Haqqani Network is an Islamist insurgent group that operates on both sides of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
The report said SIGAR referred 43 contractors' cases - most of them Afghans - to the U.S. Army for suspension or debarment, but all were rejected, "despite detailed supporting information demonstrating that these individuals and entities are providing material support to the insurgency in Afghanistan."
"In other words, they may be enemies of the United States, but that is not enough to keep them from getting government contracts," the quarterly report said.
A U.S. Army spokesman asked to comment on the report said the evidence submitted by SIGAR was based in part on anonymous sources and Commerce Department findings about the companies, and was insufficient to bar the contractors.
"The Army Procurement Fraud Branch did receive and review the 43 recommendations late last year, but the report did not include enough supporting evidence to initiate suspension and debarment under Federal Acquisition Regulations," said Matthew Bourke, an Army spokesman.
None of the contractors recommended for suspension or debarment were identified in the SIGAR report, nor did it provide details of their contractor work. SIGAR officials said that in excess of $150 million was involved, and that more than 80 percent of the contractors were Afghan entities; the rest were from the region.

Good, we need to INCREASE Sequester to 2%!!!
Pentagon Likely to Cut Furlough Days
Jul 30, 2013
Associated Press| by Lolita C. Baldor
WASHINGTON - Defense department civilians will likely face up to five fewer unpaid furlough days than originally planned, as Pentagon leaders scrimp to find up to $900 million in savings in the final months of the budget year that ends Sept. 30, officials told The Associated Press.
Officials said no final decisions have been made, but they believe civilian workers will be forced to take six to eight unpaid days off rather than the 11 days that had been scheduled. The move comes as workers begin their fourth week of furloughs - a decision that riled department employees and prompted many to complain directly to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel as he visited military bases earlier this month.

Jacqueau, I don't give a damn how you "feel" about any issue. When it is spelled out in "Law" it is the facts that are important.
I suggest you read the Hague Accords. You have heard about the Hague Accords and Geneva Conventions, have you not?

Ceasefire
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Truce" redirects here. For other uses, see Truce (disambiguation).
For other uses, see Ceasefire (disambiguation).

A ceasefire (or truce) is a temporary stoppage of a war in which each side agrees with the other to suspend aggressive actions. Ceasefires may be declared as part of a formal treaty, but they have also been called as part of an informal understanding between opposing forces. An armistice is a formal agreement to end fighting.

Amount the odd things in the Geneva Conventions is the treatment of prisoners. The weight of the prisoner must be maintained.
You have two prisoner who are captured. Both are 5'9" (175 cm) tall and the first is captured early in a battle and weighs 220 lbs (100 kg) while the other is captured after spending three months in a life raft and weighs only 110 lbs (50 kg)!
According to the Geneva Accords you can not feed the 110 lbs POW any more than to maintain his weight while the 220 pounder must be feed to maintain his over weight condition.
Doesn't sound right but it is in the International rules of war.

To be a lawful combatant you must be in an identifiable military uniform with a rank and must represent a Nation. People like frogmen are considered to be wearing a military uniform. All LAWFUL combatants are protected IAW the Geneva Accords.
If you are not a LAWFUL combatant, you are NOT protected by the GA. Al Qaeda and Taliban do not wear military uniforms and do not represent any nation. Ergo, they are NOT protected by the GA.
They are subject to a summary military tribunal and ... an execution!!!
We should try all GITMO detainees IAW the Geneva Accords and execute them. Then we can close GOTMO.
Israel should do the same to their capurted ILLEGAL combatants.

North Carolina Governor Signs New Pro-Life Legislation Into Law
Katie Pavlich | Jul 30, 2013

North Carolina Pat McCrory signed pro-life legislation into law late yesterday requiring abortion clinics to comply with basic medical standards used in outpatient surgical clinics. The legislation also allows medical insurance providers to opt out of abortion coverage in their plans. Surgical abortion in North Carolina is legal from five weeks to 20 weeks of pregnancy.

"These higher standards will result in safer conditions for North Carolina women," McCrory said. "This law does not further limit access and those who contend it does are more interested in politics than the health and safety of our citizens."

Do you remember the allied occupation of Germany and how Patton was criticized and dismissed for employing Nazi sympathisers in the rebuilding of essential infrastructures? Why was Patton, who turned out to be right, doing this? Because THERE WAS NO ONE ELSE, simple as that. All the good engineers and experts or most of them had collaborated. It also placed on the Allied side elements that many otherwise have been hostile. Same for Afghanistan. You eliminate Al Qaeda and Taliban sympathisers, you have no work force as the majority of the population is anti-Western and pro-Taliban/Al Qaeda, don't you even know that? Employing these pro-Taliban Al Qaeda elements won't make them love us, for sure, but it might just temper their zeal to destroy.

What the hell, let's just get the hell outta there.
