9. New Rules of War

I suspect that Turkey has adopted new rules for warfare (I suspect these have also been adopted by tRump).

The new rules are as follows:

Rule 1. It is okay for us (the us being whomever is arguing that they have been wronged) to attack and kill you, and to make up lies about why our cause is noble and if you oppose us then you must be evil and support terrorism.

The nice point about Rule No. 1 is that anyone gets to use it.

Rule 2. Whatever means, weapons, tactics, etc. that we use are justified because our cause is noble and if you oppose us then you must be evil and support terrorism.

You will start to see a theme here.

Rule 3. If you resist us and kill any of our troops, you are evil, etc.

Only we are allowed to use force. You cannot because our cause is noble and if you oppose us then you must be evil and support terrorism.

Rule 4. No matter how many troops we kill or injure, it is okay because our cause is noble and if you oppose us then you must be evil and support terrorism.

Rule 5. No matter how many civilians we kill or injure, it is your fault because our cause is noble and if you oppose us then you must be evil and support terrorism and the civilians wouldn't have been hurt if you had just agreed with us and given us every thing we want.

Rule 6. If you kill any of our troops, then, regardless of how many of your troops or civilians we kill, you are guilty of war crimes, crimes against humanity, you are evil and support terrorism. You are also probably guilty of littering (see Alice's Restaurant).

Rule 7. The Omnibus Rule -- One Rule to Rule Them All. What ever we do is good and blessed by God/Allah/the Flying Spaghetti Monster (actually, the FSM does not bless warfare)/etc. and whatever means we employ are justified. You oppose us, so therefore anything you do is evil, is terrorism, is supporting Satan, etc.

Summary version of Omnibus Rule -- WE GOOD YOU BAD. WE GOOD YOU SUBHUMAN. ANYTHING WE DO IS GOOD BECAUSE WE GOOD. ANYTHING YOU DO IS BAD AND ANYTHING BAD DONE TO YOU IS GOOD BECAUSE WE GOOD AND YOU SUBHUMAN.

OH, AND OUR GOD IS BETTER THAN YOUR GOD (EVEN IF SAME GOD).
