"Every war is different than any other we have fought."

Pretty much. The Viet Cong made a mockery of all previously conceived notions of war when they didn't have the fashion sense to wear easily identifiable uniforms. War just hasn't been the same ever since.

The days of country vs country are all but gone. It's basically rogue militias now. Call them what you want....terror groups, freedom fighters, extremists, etc, etc, but I don't think we're going to see many more wars that involved organized army vs organized army.

The good news is that it should dramatically reduce the number of military casualties we experience. The bad news is that we will see a rise in civilian casualties as these groups are indiscriminate when choosing their targets. They don't play by our rules.

Perf, what you are suggesting, IMO, is sort of turning a crime into sort of a hate crime. A crime is a crime, no matter what the influences. Basing extra punishment on influences is basing punishment on emotion.

It is not a crime to hate the US, it is a crime to bomb people for any reason.

"Much of your going off on Fun is based upon your claim that he's saying things you haven't said. But you have said them. "

lol. I say something in general terms, later it gets defined, but he always resort to his assumption on the first statement. This isn't a thesis. I don't write 10 paragraph posts. This is a few minute distraction from work every now and then.

"The difference to me is the likelyhood of outside influence, motive, and aid."

"If me and a couple of guys decided to kill a bunch of people in the name of north korea, then we should be treated as enemy combatants because we choose to take up arms against U.S citizens in the name of an enemy country."

You are dancing on a dangerously slippery slope by offering ANY way to suspend the constitutional protections for ANYONE within the borders of this country. 

Who gets to decide that you're an enemy? The (politically-appointed) Attorney General? How does such a decision get made? What protections do you have against them getting it wrong? 

There are countless tales of innocent people getting ramrodded by rogue, dishonest, politically-motivated, and/or stupid prosecutors. That's even WITH the protections we have. Take them away, and no one is safe.
