"Calvin Leon Graham (April 3, 1930 – November 6, 1992) was the youngest U.S. serviceman to serve and fight during World War II. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, he enlisted in the United States Navy from Houston, Texas on August 15, 1942, at the age of 12."

So we celebrate (or use to) people who were younger than 17 and fought the Japs.

Young people have been combatants before.

Why is it that if you kill a a young terrorist vice a older terrorist that liberals want to kill you?

Either terrorist can take you life with the squeeze of a trigger. Serious question for any liberal Is a bullet less deadly if a 15 year old fires it than if an 18 year old fires it?

If it is not why are you treating them differently?

I know that liberals do not understand psychology except. People get callous when they are subjected to the world of so many bad guys. They are told lies. The bad guys break the acknowledge rules of war and wear civilian clothing. The ROE are unconscionable and written by people who have no skin in the game. The people making the rules up have not walked 1 mile in that man's shoes. They have not even walked a step or tried the boots on. Walk that far and see if you do not have off color or gallows humor.

15 year olds are not children. For that matter neither are 14 year olds period.

Pretty sure the boy was actually receiving medical care by a med tech and the seal walked up behind him and stabbed him in the back.

Pretty sure. Then cite your source.

You gave yourself away last month.

Not only you anti-Israeli, but you are anti-American as well.

Stab the person of approximate age, yes. In the back no. But you liked the way it sounded. That person was an illegal combatant BTW.

The problem would be solved if outside the Yazidis, Kurds, Christians and the Sunni that we fought with, we let the whole place burn itself down. Then we would not have combat fatigue nor would we have you. I am sure you would join ISIS if you thought it would have lasted longer. Should let ISIS run its course like letting a fever or disease run its course.
