An example is the crime against humanity in attacking Libya after they did nothing to us.

Even Jeb Bush admitted the Iraq invasion was a big mistake.

    Did the Vietnamese do something to us? Did the Iraqis, did the Afghanis? It is all little confusing...

    its gibberish to me.
    Might mean something if 'permitted' were replaced by 'committed'.

    Understanding the U.S. Relationship with Israel is key to understanding conflict in the region. How many crimes are permitted, the authors of equality through socialism, infest the educational institutions of higher learning. Their publications, and strangle hold on the unsuspecting minds of our children. Albert Camus was a believer in pluralism, and the inherent qualities of morality through natural law. Consider the middle class management, held to a higher standard morally, than those of the elite in politics. This current wave of rebellion is due to an increase in perversion of the natural law of moral responsibility. Let alone the degrading of decent wholesome life through the promotion of immoral behavior by the state and fed for profit. Oregon's biggest problem, no respect for the U.S. Constitution and our Declaration of ( Inalienable Rights) which the Constitution is designed to protect. Through upholding and enforcement of unjust laws, by any law enforcement officer or judiciary is contemptible and held in great disdain among True Patriots of Liberty and Freedom, Oath keepers that defend and uphold our Declaration and Constitution with all rights reserved to/for the Individual sovereign.

    Abby, EXACTLY ! ! ! How many crimes were committed in Viet Nam simply because the arms manufacturers couldn't be wrong in their up-grades (they needed to be tried out somewhere). How many crimes were committed in Iraq simply for punishing the dictator who dared move on Bush's oil reserves - proving that might makes right and Bush oil interests are never wrong. How many crimes were/are committed in Afghanistan simply because the psychological war mongers needed a proving ground on how to best improve their radical religion up-grades so they wouldn't be wrong when it is really needed.

    How about the Patriot Act -- still on the books, no right to habeas corpus. How about all the statutes and regulations for legalizing medication? Vaccination laws have caused the deaths of thousands of innocent children, and has been the cause of autism for decades -- the data has been in for a while, settlements made to victims are not reported as a condition. What about asset forfeiture laws? Find a pot seed in your car, lose your car -- or your house! Legalized plunder has become a way of life now. Read 'The Law' by Frederic Bastiat.
