    You could start with honoring him with something that took more effort than all the press time he gave some punk thug "that looked like his boy". Maybe a mention at a press conference as to the historic nature of such an event and the history of his service. Having some lacky write a press release that Obama himself probably "heard about on the news" doesn't cut it.

    I think that in order to be considered an act of war, the group must be part of a military group or country with uniforms. This is per the Geneva Convention. I don't remember all the other requirements, but I do know that if the group don't wear uniforms then the act is not considered war.

    This separates soldiers in uniform from a civilians. Then a terrorist is someone which doesn't wear uniform by default.

    They also don't get the same rights as POW's and the thus the Cuban resort.

    We have the 9/11 Memorial and the Pearl Harbor War Memorial.

    Rather than argue what is considered a war zone, the fact remains Maj. Gen. Harold Greene is the highest ranking general killed in combat since 1970. He deserved a little more respect than he got from the POTUS and his funeral at Arlington cemetery deserved a little bit more mention than Robin Williams' suicide.

    Agreed. When we lose a leader of his stature, he should be honored with everything we can do to respect his service and dedication.

    IMO this would include attending his funeral held a few days ago. Instead, the POTUS opted for a round of golf.

    Congratulations you made the president look bad for a minute at the expense of a fallen soldiers family and loved ones. Good job you real Americans.
    During break time at obedience school, two dogs were talking.
    One said to the other..."The thing I hate about obedience school is you learn ALL this stuff you will never use in the real world."

    That's the point of the whole thread... He makes himself look like an absolute jerk every time there is any issue that comes up relating to the military. He doesn't need help from his critics, we just have to blow off steam or we would have an aneurism.
