Some thing talked about over on the Mil. forum. I would love to hit the Dims with next time they try bashing Bush for his "Illegal Wars" BS.

In the "No good reason to be in Afghanistan" thread an Interesting paradox came up.

RS1 postulated that since there was no declaration of War by the U.S.Congress, that the war is Illegal. Using RS1 "logic" (I Know, I Know , the irony Roll Eyes) doesn't this mean Barack Hussein Obama is a War Criminal for continuing to use US Soldiers to fight an Illegal war In Afghanistan? After all he has the power to remove them Immediately if he so chooses.

Using this Logic shouldnt we hand Obama & Bush over immediately to the Hague for trial for waging Agressive War?



Thanks to RS1 for turning us all onto this, Please Discuss

Would we then be under the jurisdiction of the world court that the left wants so badly?
