Waaaaait a minute... this sounds familiar.
We went to war with rules. We follow the rules, but the other side wants to win, so they're breaking the rules.
Um... isn't this America? Didn't we do that to the British in the American Revolution? I know that Mr. Bush failed history, but did EVERYONE in that administration fail with him?
THIS IS AMERICA!
WE INVENTED BREAKING THE RULES!
