You're right... it is a different situation. Because Americans would never surrender to an invader even if we had to go back to being minutemen. And good for us.

Clearly you're not understanding that particular argument from me. Moving on...

Seems like a similar situation to me.

According to that quote of his... no he wouldn't.

Hey, maybe not. Maybe we should have just stayed out of WWII altogether and just defended our soil when they tried to hit us there. After all, the reason why Japan hit us was because we cut off all ties to them during WWII but continued to assist the Allies, particularly Britain.

In order to fight in WWII we had to draft soldiers, and drafts are the ultimate assault on your liberty.

War isn't good for the environment period.

If you think that the atrocities and war crimes that Israel commited in Lebanon are justified then there's no hope of me ever influening your opinion here.

Then who's fault is it that they're dead eh? Is it Japan's fault? Is it our fault? Of course it's OUR FAULT. WE dropped the bombs. If you're going to slaughter civilians, at LEAST have the honesty to say that WE killed them and it was on purpose. None of this sick Israel **** "oh Hezbollah killed them by putting rockets in their living rooms. Not our fault we bombed their houses!"

I'd prefer the option that kills no people.

That's not what I suggested in my post. Perhaps you misunderstood me.
