    I pity all these libs. They are so busy whining and complaining and figuring out how to be victims of something or other. There's a whole great big world full of friends and love, and some great hobbies like guns and eating rare red meat... LOLOL.

    We would give them some grief no doubt. I have a gun that locks on target up to 1500 yards. That’s an impressive gun. I mean you don’t miss. An 8 year old could hit something almost a mile away with it. So yes we have some impressive guns. But the civilian AR-15 is a joke compared to real military rifles.

    Small arms don't do well against F-16's, tanks and Apaches... but the Taliban seemed to do ok

    If there was ever an occupation force within the United States they would constantly be fighting a gorilla war. Our guns definitely serve a purpose of self defense on a world stage too

    Not really. That was not a declared war.

    I'm rather sure that Bin Laden announced a Jihad against the US ever since they attacked Iraq in the 1990's.
    So suddenly them civilians are justified to have been targeted? Really? lol


    How about all them civilians killed by the Palestinians?
    Are "we" going to regard that it's totally legit as well when a Jew gets a knife added in the neck?


    This whole utterly dumb thread sounds like it came with the idea that the US should be neverminded when they kill loads of brown people, without thinking it through that the blade cuts at 2 sides.

    "Declaring" a war is for old men in suits sitting around a table. Young men and women getting shot and killed really don't care about the paperwork status. To them, war is war, no matter who signed what about it.

    If the thread is "utterly dumb" then why bother gracing with your obviously superior intellect?

    It was simply a question I was curious about. Nothing more.

    And so far you have four votes that agree with the way Putin is waging war on Ukraine and not committing war crimes.

    Hol' up.
    You dragged in that the civilians of 9/11 were not legit because there was no war declaration.
    I disputed that.

    And your reaction to that is basically requesting to please leave this thread with a lame excuse.


    HA!
