Why is this piece of shit being afforded Constitutional rights?
Because you aren’t them. No matter what comparisons people want to make between you, no matter how much morons want to say you deserved 9/11, you just aren’t them.
Are you saying here that while US citizens are being stripped of THEIR rights, foreign invaders are getting them instead? I am asking this in all sincerity. I don’t mean this as a slam, I really don’t, but I have a hard time following your posts sometimes.
Because we don’t torture our prisoners. We don’t deny habeas corpus. We don’t sink to the level of whatever piece of shit attacks us and use “well he did it first” as justification. Because we’re a nation of laws and we apply those laws evenly and without prejudice.
Some of what we’ve done over the past several years in the name of “national security” is going to come out in a public trial, and it’s going to cause some shame and hopefully some reevaluation of who we really are. Hopefully after the pieces of shit who attacked us are dealt with, the other pieces of shit who ordered their torture will also be brought to justice.
Edit: I also oppose the death sentence for these people, as well as labeling them “war criminals” or anything else that would cause their glorification to other extremists. They’re common criminals, and making martyrs of them is the worst thing we can do. Send them to solitary at one of the supermax facilities for many, many more years than they can be expected to live. Gone and soon forgotten.
Wow ~ that’s a pretty high minded post. I’m guessing you are pretty upset that Obama continues to use predators / drones to target and kill Al Qaeda in Pakistan correct? No miranda rights or warrents or subpoenas.
Even when there is collateral damage…? I’m not hearing much from the left (or therapeutic thinkers like you) on this little issue. No screams about “justice being denied”. How do you explain that?
Right ~ you can’t.
I don’t know why this is so tough on people.
The whole of human history is replete with, indeed consists of, examples.
When a very large body of armed people are unwaveringly committed to hastening your demise, you must hasten theirs first by whatever means are required.
Here’s a tip. When you have to follow rules that they don’t. You lose. Even if you’re bigger than they are.
These twerps who worry more about what these barbarians think OF us than they do about what they’re doing TO us are destroying the country my children will live in. It’s much more than some words of disagreement on a computer screen.
I think we are more worried about what YOU will do to US in the name of doing it to THEM.
The law of unintended consequences is not suspended in times of “war”.
You are probably good to go, providing you don’t sashay around with “soldier of allah” business cards, give lectures about pouring boiling oil into non believers, preach how Allah expects full loyalty and to establish an Islamic state to please Allah even by force is condoned in Islam, or commit mass murder in the name of your religion.
I guess you fall into the camp of those that say ~ as they are having their plane hijacked and aimed towards tall buildings ~ “At least we didn’t racially profile them… WE took the high road”.
Well done bro.
