“Why are you attacking these poor girls? They’re just idiots doing what they’re told! You should be going after the people in charge instead!”Newsflash: journalists who support evil regimes are as morally culpable as the regimes themselves,
even if they don’t directly participate in their evil acts. This was established by the Nuremberg Trials: journalists who egged on German war crimes were hanged alongside the Nazi officials who actually carried them out. I don’t care if Figalora and her comrades aren’t getting paid to smear me, how low on the totem pole they are or any of that crap: the mere fact that they’re working for the MSM makes them my adversaries. Does a soldier on the battlefield concern himself with the fact that the enemies he’s shooting at might be nice guys who are just following orders? No: he nuts up, does his duty and pulls the trigger.How to Destroy Someone’s Reputation with Google

The article he links about the Nuremburg trials is interesting but its written in the context of saying journalists who supported or remotely published anything that helped the War on Terror should be tried and convicted for evil deeds. That fool's position is that the invasion of Iraq was a horrific evil war crime equivalent to Nazi Germany.

It was a war crime and there is no question about it.
Equating someone talking about a murder being equal to someone committing murder is base silliness and undermines the severity of the act.
Grow the fuk up.

Iraq a war crime? You mean the UN-approved congressionally approved completion of a war paused only by a cease fire that Hussein violated scores of times? That was a war crime in what way, exactly?
The way the right has bought into the stupidest lies about Iraq from people they know better than to believe is inconceivable to me.

The crime of Iraq was pretending we can fight a war to benefit the people of Iraq. Baghdad should have been turned to rubble on the day the US began the 1990/91 Gulf war. Keep making rubble until Saddam is dead or strung up by Iraqi civilians/military or until the last Iraqi turns to smoke.
Instead, we have to pretend we are going to fight a war and prove to the world we get nothing of value from said war, and are agnostic about what the locals create after the war. Just as Leftists have perverted and extended the rights of criminals until they have more rights than a citizen, The Left and Right have perverted Just War Theory into some unrecognizable and impossible procedure that accomplishes only the waste of many lives and shiploads of money.
There is nothing moral about a limited war. A Limited war is worse than a Total war, because it accomplishes nothing and it kills. Limited wars usually last longer and they serve the purposes of The Left of undermining support for America. Nobody but diplomats should give a good Gee Dee what anyone outside the US thinks about US action in war. War is not a message-sending device. It's only purpose is to destroy as much as it takes to remove a problem, leader, or country. It is up to the locals to find us and surrender when they have had enough. It is not our duty to fight ONLY their govt and leave the locals as bystanders. They supported, or failed to remove a problem that came to our attention and has become our problem. Sitting on the sidelines while Irag shot at our aircraft made the civilians legitimate war targets. "Get off your ass and kill Saddam or accept this small GPS-guided token of our appreciation for avoiding your duty."
Limited War is an impossible Utopian compromise that hasn't yet worked. The US wins Total Wars. The Vietnam War Plan will not work. It cannot work. It cannot be made to work by Patton and Jesus almighty. Either a problem warrants Total War or it doesn't. This constant trimming between positions will kill and destroy everything eventually. It's the habit of content-free citizens unwilling to turn off TV even when the future is being decided.
