    The difference between WWI and Gulf War II is that after WWII the sane people of the world decided some shit was just too horrible to allow even in war so they came up with the Geneva Convetion.

    In Gulf War II the absurd people of this administration decided that adhering to the Geneva Convention was a lot of work and so they threw it out the window.
