    Presumably, but it doesn't change the fact that a civilian protest isn't an act of war.

    Launching an airstrike on the other hand is. And murder of a uniformed officer outside a war zone is dirty pool, after all, according to the Hague Conventions.

    You're a legal minded guy so this might appeal to you. A lot of people are throwing around terms loosely, but acts of war are after all regulated by international law.

    Of course, who gives a shit about the law, right ?

      That letter writer is the author of Anonymous: A Warning.

      I have read it, it's not misinformation. If anything, it explains a lot we already know from people like Mattis, Tillerson, several ex FBI and CIA directors.

      It's not multidimensional chess. It's checkers with several pieces missing from the board.

        There is always the chance that specialists will be conscripted. Healthcare, cyber, etc.

        You simply can't get enough volunteers in certain fields. In fact those two fields are sorely understaffed across the military today.

            Yes, I addressed this in an earlier post. Someone asked a question about that post and I responded.

                It is retarded to call a center left person a conservative. The left isn't opposed to military action as a principle of retaliation.
                Calling people out for what is basically saying well I think it was a good idea to kill that guy except no because Trump, isn't conservative.
                So yeah I am not all about that but Trump bullshit.
                You're, or should I just say your to be at your level Mr. Rinse?? Anyhoo you're obviously far more retarded if you can't even manage basic reading skills. I said fuck all about roasting the general, in fact I've stated more than once that I'm ok with it, dumbass. I was referring ONLY to your use of the phrase "deepstate" which is 100% attributed to right wing circle jerkers. If you don't want to be drafted into that crowd by way of association then don't use their stupid ass terminology. I'll put this for you the same way I did for Dr. PHD: Actions count, bullshit claims do not. You can claim to be whatever political affiliation that you believe will add value to you statements, but I'll go with your actions by way of supporting certain arguments instead.

                  Its cool your too stupid to actually be able to infer meaning based on context:
                  A deep state can also take the form of entrenched, career civil servants acting in a non-conspiratorial manner, to further their own interests. The intent of a deep state can include continuity of the state itself, job security for its members, enhanced power and authority, and the pursuit of ideological objectives. It can operate in opposition to the agenda of elected officials, by obstructing, resisting, and subverting their policies, conditions and directives.
                  It is the obvious use that I use it as. It has nothing to do with Right or Left leaning vernacular.

                  Of course you are more than welcome to back up your statement that I am conservative with any arguments that I have made that are conservative.
                  Other than try and play pseudo vernacular gymnastics.

                    The 542 drone strikes that Obama authorized killed an estimated 3,797 people, including 324 civilians. All of those being anti-terrorism strikes. So if you think retaliation is purely a conservative ideal you couldn't be more wrong.

                      Tell me, Bnet, is there much of a gap between winning the Dumbest Post of the Year in a given year, and being one of the Dumbest posters?

                      Admittedly, there are a few regular posters on this board dumber than you, but you are certainly top 5.

                      Just curious.

                        So speak of the devil, but now there is real concern retaliation by Iran might also target any of Trump's properties.

                        That's a new twist, targeting civilians on Trump's golf courses. Or Trump Tower in NYC. Or Mar-a-lago.

                        One of them is down the road from me in Bedminster. Talk about soft targets. Glad I don't golf much.

                          Bullshit, your post in it's context says you're lying.

                          As far as you defending conservative values, are you really fucking retarded enough to post this?? Hahahahaha. Let's see here besides you blatant use of a right wing term, how's about your support of billionaires and trickle down style economics. Not to mention your posted views are worker rights. Actions motherfucker. Your words are hollow Mr. Rinse.

                            Why, because I see through your crappy straw man?? You're just a bot so there's little point trying to discuss anything real with you. Oh and at least when I post I use half decent sentence structure. Which if you knew my history with grammar you would understand why that is a gigantic fucking insult.

                              Bnet, if you are indeed dumb, or stupid, then how would you know if you were seeing through anything,

                              rather than just going through life as if it was a box of chocolates?
