“Unlawful wanton destruction or appropriation of property” is considered a Grave Breach of the Geneva Convention.
If we invaded Iraq under the pretense of preventing the use of weapons of mass destruction, which as we all know now did not exist, and ended up taking its oil as Donald Trump says we should have done, at the very least, then the United States of America could have been tried in an International Criminal Court.
At the present time, we are the most threatening power on the planet. We should not be throwing our weight around to take another country’s property.
That’s not what we’re about, Donald.
Update: I heard a general for Trump (there’s a club that I wouldn’t want membership in) say that Donald didn’t mean that we should steal the oil. No, he meant we should have left forces there to prevent the oil from falling into ISIS’s hands.
And that would almost make sense if Trump hadn’t said, “To the victor goes the spoils”. Sooo, there’s that.
Sounds like it could be the motto of his presidency. If he’s the victor, what is going to stop him from taking all the spoils of power?
