Shut up Donald Trump, part 2. Taking Iraq's Oil is immoral, and illegal

If you watched MSNBC's Commander and Chief Forum with presidential candidates Democrat Hillary Clinton and conservative Republican Donald Trump, you heard The Donald say we should have taken Iraq's oil after the disastrous 2003 Iraq war. "To the victor go the spoils" he said. Well, Donald you are again showing that you are a fascist. (by the way, he's made the argument about taking the oil before, five years ago. I called him out on it back then.)

Stealing another country's resources after war is immoral, and illegal. The Wall Street Journal reports that such action like taking Iraq's oil would violate the Geneva Convention, and the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907. Not to mention, it is the simple crime of theft.

Look, here Donald. We are not the conquering Romans or Nazis out to plunder other countries. We are Americans. We stand for justice and freedom.
