War Criminal Vets

When I point out to Americans and Canadians that aiding and abetting aggressive (first strike) war is a capital offence and hence most of the current American and Canadian vets are guilty of a hanging crime because they participated in the Viet Nam, Afghanistan or Iraq wars and every Nazi hanged at the end of WWII (World War II) was charged with only this offence, I get several responses:

Afghanistan did not attack the USA on 2001-09-11. The official story is that Al Qaeda did, not Afghanistan. Bush said he thought bin Laden was hiding in Afghanistan. It turned out he was in Pakistan. Then the USA attacked the Taliban, the government of Afghanistan, whom Bush did not even allege to have any rôle whatsoever in 2001-09-11. This is like attacking Argentina because of a rumor Pablo Escobar was hiding there. It was a resource war. bin Laden was just an excuse to invade. Even after bin Laden was dead, the war plodded on.
