Trump surrogates on CNN saying we should kill civilians and not worry when fighting ISIS.

They both stated that killing civilians should have no bearing on a decision to strike. These grotesquely ignorant idiots have no idea what the hell they're talking about. They were smiling during this discussion, I really couldn't believe they were saying it out loud. It's just, wow.

6. Yup

The people in the slave markets are innocent. But the Republicans on the panel were dismissive of those innocent lives, nevertheless.

Btw, it was especially good when Van explained the reason and importance of civilian command over our military. Sadly, the R's needed the lesson.

8. They don't care. They have no idea when we kill an innocent we leave a family of

People who want to kill US. Every basic lesson of the Iraq war is completely lost on these people. They place no value on "those brown people"

11. Civilians will be killed in fighing any war.

FDR and Truman authorized bombing raids against civilian targets in WW II which killed hundred of thousands of innocent civilians.

20. The whole of the GWOT is totally lacking in logical and moral legitamacy, so yes.

Aggressive war is a violation of international law.

16. Apparently you think you've presented a compelling argument

for indiscriminate killing.

Far from it.

17. Poor guy is just using the 'shit happens' argument

But that's really pretty disgusting. We have a responsibility, morally and under U.S. and international law, to PREVENT shit from happening.
