Here is an email I received in response to one of my essays.
Which webpage? I have written thousands of them, not to mention newsgroup posts. Perhaps you are referring the essay on the Nuremberg War Crimes trials and how they mean that US soldiers serving in Iraq are guilty of a capital international war crime.
how dare you disrespect our Us Military you skumbag… so let me guess? are you disrespecting the canadiens that are fighting in war? if it wasn’t for them, your wimpo ass would be fighting in combat. so shed some respect for the UN (United Nations) forces idiot.
Where did you get the idea Canada was fighting in Iraq? Canada is refused to join Iraqi in the illegal Iraq invasion as did the UN. The is an informal coalition of the willing aka coalition of the coerced fighting there. Mainly it consists of the USA and Britain.
The invasion of Iraq was illegal from the start.

The invasion and occupation of Iraq is illegal.
~ Kofi Annan (born:1938-04-08 age:78)Secretary General and Boutros Boutros-Ghali (born:1922-11-14 died:2016-02-16 at age:93) former Secretary General of the U.N.
I think in this case international law stood in the way of doing the right thing.
~ Richard Perle (born:1941-09-16 age:75), 2003-11-20, Pentagon hawk, cat-stroking, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, James Bond villain pasty lookalike, admitting the Iraq war is illegal.
This [the Iraq war] is just an excuse to get Iraq’s oil.

Where did you get the idea the UN was fighting in Iraq? They declared the US action illegal. Both in Afghanistan and Iraq, the USA attacked unprovoked. The USA is the aggressor. Nobody living in the USA has been harmed by Afghanistan or Iraq. The only people killed were those Americans illegally invading Iraq and Afghanistan. The USA has a military bigger than all other militaries on the planet. The notion is you are fighting for your life or freedom is preposterous. American soldiers in Iraq are war criminals same as the Nazis, fighting to steal oil from Iraq.
dude. nobody has the right to disrespect any military…
So you respect the Nazis, Calley and the guards at Abu Ghraib? If a soldier commit crimes, he is a criminal. A uniform does not excuse him. Nazis believe it the absolute right of the military to do as they please. I believe in the rule of law.
some people may not be happy about what they’re fighting for, but they’re doing a job to make sure we’re safe.
Safe? get serious! The average wage in Iraq is a month. They have no weapon bigger than a kitchen made bomb. You attacked them, not the reverse. There is no way they could invade the USA. You are like an old lady standing on a table shrieking in terror at a mouse.
what happends if there wasn’t no military? u know how fast russia, or china would try to invade the us or canada if we didn’t have out special forces fighting and showing how we will not run? think about that…
Nobody has suggested such a thing but you. Technically it is a dishonest debating tactic called a straw man. Refraining from attacking other nations unprovoked has bugger all to do letting other nations who attack walk all over you.
i would fight till i die befor china makes me their slave! death befor dishonor. I luv my Us forces and what we stand for and how we fight till the end. We will not stop and we will never surrender to anyone, anytime, anywhere… We are fearless Remember the name.
You have been watching too many movies. There is nothing noble about beating up a tiny third world country and stealing their oil.
i don’t understand when people do that… so are you against your canadien forces as well? because they’re in iraq too… i know, their military is prob not even 1/10 the size of our U.S. forces and your technology is so old it’s pitiful… they’re still in Iraq with our Us Forces.
There are no Canadian soldiers in Iraq. There are some in Afghanistan (yet another illegal war). There is only a Canadian ship sitting off coast not involved in combat, but that’s it.
so is UN and other countries as well… Just remember, if they don’t fight over there me, you and every other person will be in danger… because the Us and other countries are willing to stand up, the terrorist can’t bring the fight here head on, unless they try to sucker punch us from behind like 9/11 damn skum bag losers, instead when they try to fight against us and need i rephrase that (try) they can’t win… So u know what they do?
Washington officials tried to obtain an UN Security Council resolution specifically authorising the invasion, since without such a resolution the contemplated military action would be illegal under the UN charter (as was noted months later by the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan). Opposition principally from France, Germany and Russia prevented passage of the resolution. In the course of the debate, long-standing alliances frayed.

How could the UN possibly be involved when the UN declared the war illegal? Does not the phrase coalition of the willing ring any bells? Bush would not have needed such a rag tag band had he got UN support for his phony war. Don’t your remember all that silliness about how evil the French were? Their crime was refusing to believe Bush’s bullshit story about WMDs (Weapon of Mass Destructions). They have a veto on the Security Council. Consider that the primary effect of the war has been to cut off France, Germany and Russia from Iraq’s oil. Why would they both vote to cut off their oil supply? Since you don’t even know very basic facts about this war, such as who is fighting and have such atrocious spelling which suggests you do very little reading, for me you have unusually low credibility generally on matters of world affairs. Don’t trust me. Check up. When you discover you are utterly wrong about such basics, consider the possiblity you are equally wrong in your other beliefs about the Iraq war.
|cluster bomb victim|
Your side has spent three trillion bucks on this war. And you sit there with your face hanging out claiming the Iraqis beat themselves up? You saw Bush’s Shock & Awe on the opening day on the war live on CNN (Cable News Network), bombing the residential parts of Baghdad. That style of war kills mostly civilians and kids. You have seen the photos of the results of banned weapons such as napalm, white phosphorus, land mines and cluster bombs. And you truly respect the cowards who did that? I don’t think you could have thought his through. You tell me you hate these kids and all Iraqis with a passion, based purely on propaganda stories. You gag on a gnat and swallow a camel, the camel being the three trillion in mayhem your country has visited on Iraq.
It will likely come as a shock to you how wrong you were about basic facts. You may be tempted to dismiss me out of hand. I urge you to search Google to find even one newspaper or newsmagazine article to support your claim.
