Aw yes! You are conservative! Riiight! A treaty is not Supreme, it is a temporary agreement that can be changed at any time. We voted the bums out of the Senate. With the stroke of a pen the United States can remove the anti-American United Nations from our shores, and this needs to be done. The title Anti-Partisan should not have strong partisan feelings, but you seem to have them, which means you are really Anti- Anti-Partisan! A UN one world order ideologue. I am proudly American.

Spoken like a leftist. Yours is 'settled science' and anything but your point of view offends you. I can agree that the United Nations treaty actually says what you claim. It is the corrupt elitist UN after all. But for every rule, there is an exception. They say that actually proves the rule. Saying the United States signed a UN treaty and therefore it is settled is foolish. It leaves the United States as the only entity that would even consider this. That is fine with you, but not for me. Now the UN Secretary General wants to try our people. Let them do just that, AFTER they move to Chine where they belong, and WITHOUT any funding from the US.

One World Order elitists. The United Nations has outlived any usefulness it once had. Using the UN for justification is tipping your hat to the ultimate corruption of the UN.

Another reason to throw the United Nations out of our country and stop paying all their bills. It is an anti-American organization. Throw the elitist bums out.

Look up the signatories of the Geneva Conventions. Do you see any nations that sponsor terrorism among them? Killing the enemies was acceptable. Taking prisoners is dangerous and costly. There needs to be a reason for doing so in life or death situations. Just to be nice and humane doesn't cut it during life and death conflicts. The definition of "torture" is completely determined by the person using the term, and seems to be continually changing. If only interrogation could be done at leisure in the comfort of your home with a very compliant terrorist and no lives hung in the balance it sure would be easier! Feeling good, and feeling superior, in a hypothetical situation isn't really a conservative ideal. That sort of tugs at the heartstrings of liberals.
That was a pretty good jump to a "homogeneous clump" when I believe Darby was simply Stating what one of the core problems of the feminist movement is. There are rules and there are exceptions. Too many times the exceptions are used as cover while working on obscuring the rule. Sure there are Christians in the feminist movement, but they are the exception. Seeing this basic tenet of the feminist movement will become problematic for them eventually. Feminism wants to establish their own religion with their own 'gods' that they choose. As the Christians within the movement realize that they do not fit into the established feminist role, they will be forced to reevaluate. To be a Christian doesn't make you right all the time. It just means you place your faith and trust in Jesus. But so they don't get led astray they must verify through God's written word. When there is a conflict, be sure to get back on the narrow path! (Matt 7)
The feminist's real anger is at God. Man didn't create women to be women, that was God! God also created man and the family unit. Feminists are angry at God because God didn't create them as men. Being perpetually angry at God is not healthy. God knows what he is doing. He knows who you are and why you were created with the gifts you have. Learn to relax, trust God and be the best that you were created by God to be.
I feel your grief. My daughter was deployed several times and on her first deployment I also volunteered to go in summer of 2003. But if your son is in the military you go where and when told. We know that when we go into the service. We can't just change our minds because of the political climate. That is the job. A blank check for up to and including our very lives, regardless of who is in office. That is what makes our military work. A salute and thank you to all our military and their families, past present and future! Support our troops. To my fellow Vietnam vets, Welcome Home!
Just a point. If the goal of the Iraq War was to build a democratic nation in the middle east, we failed miserably. If the goal was to make friends with the Iraqi people, we failed miserably. If the goal was to gain Iraqi oil as the 'no blood for oil' idiots express, we failed. BUT, if the goal was to attract the radical militant jihadists to Iraq, where we controlled the ground, the air and the night, and exterminate them there so they could never make it to our home soil, it was a success. The borders were not secured, allowing terrorists into Iraq. The media constantly whined about American deaths, giving the terrorists the feeling that it was a fight they could win. If seen through the lens of 9/11, this was the true priority. Force the terrorists to wage war in the area we dictate. Sacrifice their fighters and the funding to get them there and die like rats. If we could have finished the job of rebuilding their government instead of abandoning them it would have proved good for the Iraqi people and middle east relations. But no, surrender after the victory was once again the desire of Democrats.
The story wasn't about the right to appeal. only that the reasons for doing so in this case are suspect. Shining a defining light on the situation will clarify the situation. The answer isn't we should "stop allowing even evil entities due process" but that their motives should be made transparent.
That is by no means a 'surprise' because that is the primary tactic of the left. Any close election in reality was not close, as the dead, multiple voters and Democrat trips through the ghetto to swap food, cigarettes and crack for votes has skewed the process. Motor Voter? Instant voter!
