right you want to complain about authoritarian military states set an example at home of a democratic state that isn't downright embarrassing

every bit of this posturing is proving "our enemies" are correct

Anything the US does is going to be used as propaganda for extremists. I really don't think at this stage worrying about that is an issue.

^ Yes, I agree. I was really talking about the opinion of the ordinary Afghan people; the ones tired of violence, who just want to earn some money and send their kids to school. Luckily, from what CNN is reporting this morning, there were no civilian casualties, so let's hope the bombing won't stir up anti-American feeling among the general Afghan population.

I think he means that if Trump/America want to be seen to be a democratic state then it's going to backfire if they just drop bombs on their enemies without any sanctions or discussion.

You don't see how the destruction and destabilization caused by American bombs create anti-U.S. sentiments? And how this creates a recruitment potential for extremist groups?

Also, on North Korea: it's a ****ing terrible regime, but they're not exactly a threat to world peace. The main reason they've been developing nuclear weapons is to stave off a U.S. invasion.

Of course I see it, my point is that it doesn't matter what we do this is going to happen anyways. Would you rather let ISIS members live or at least kill off some of them and their operating bases?
