"-- to finance mass murder. It’s called war, ..."

Nope. Sorry, war is not mass murder. Not by any legal definition. War often does result in mass homicide, but the word 'murder' carries with it certain and long accepted meanings in law and cannot be conflated with war. That is not to say that certain acts committed during war can not be treated as crimes. It is possible to commit mass murder during a war, but killing enemy combatants has never been considered to be murder except under explicit circumstances, as in killing enemy prisoners. Killing civilians as an objective has even been considered justifiable under the circumstances to destroy the ability and will of enemy populations to continue the war. The accidental collateral killing of civilians is also not absolutely or automatically considered mass murder or a war crime.
But, the whole notion of war is one of justifiable homicide by nation states. Thus, the notion of the rules of war as described by treaties and conventions, such as Geneva, and subscribed to, though often ignored by the signatories.
The mere idea of an illegal war is evidence that there exists the concept of legal war, and therefore, one cannot simply deem any war or even a long list of so-called wars to be mass murder without subsequent quantification or even explanation, something that is often sadly lacking in the arguments submitted by Mr. Richmond.
I do agree that we have lost sight of the requirement to declare war, and thereby make it official and unquestionably legal and just, but there is no prerequisite of war, declared or otherwise that our soil must be attacked in order to engage in military hostilities anywhere in the World that Congress deems necessary to protect our national interests.

Just because we disagree on the relevance of those arguments, does not in itself make it mass murder to do so.
