use it against civilians
that's a seperate argument
like that, or
do you think that we should get rid our military?
Slash funding severely I say
cut all aid to Israel
keep some troops stationed in Rojava, purely defensively, until local militas are able to take over the situation
then pull out
what was the conclusion of that?
did they conclude that it happened?
I mean, the corpses kinda speak
what did it conclude
IIRC, in this incident, the guy said that "If what he did was a crime, then most soldiers would be prosecuted"
lemme find it
presuming the court is infallible
it's better to presume you're infallible
and not, y'know, biased in favor of the soldiers with guns fighting for lobbied oil interests
So you're saying that if a nation doesn't recognize its own war crimes
everything is ok?
you should be used at the objective beacon then
I'm telling you that you don't have proof that it happened
and even if it did
it's a rogue action
not one the military ordered
or approved of
iraq was a clusterfuck
"Investigators examining the buildings where the killings took place found there was no evidence of a firefight.
Instead they are understood to have concluded that the killings were "methodical in nature" and occurred as the unit conducted a sweep through a town lasting three to five hours.
Among the dead were five men standing near a taxi at a checkpoint and killings inside at least two homes that included women and children, unnamed officials were quoted as saying."
because entire villages were violent toward the US soldiers
So shooting unarmed civilians who didn't resist
or put up a fight
'cuz maybe they didn't like the men with guns
that didn't happen
sweeping through their town
eh, I'll just not waste my time
