Now, can you honestly say "fair is fair" when you were dealing with some filth like Bin Laden?
Do you mean - he killed, so we should be allowed to kill? He killed so we should
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth? Retaliation? Even Steven?
Or do you mean he doesn't deserve
If you've determined that he doesn't deserve to be judged, you've still judged - he just wasn't tried
He was executed without a trial
Can we call this justice - or is it only revenge?
Is revenge the first, best choice of honorable men and women?
Assuming you're a patriot, and you believe we live in an honorable nation made up of decent, honorable people - not animals - you would have to
include our justice system in the list of things that makes us all decent, honorable people.
The fact that we have a justice system, however imperfect, suggests a certain level of integrity
This was blood-lust - pure and simple. And that isn't something we believe in or stand for - is it?
That this animal deserved a trial? That the U.S. was wrong to kill this unarmed atrocity of a human.?
Interesting that you used the word unarmed...why did you include it? Freudian slip?
Do you think the Nuremberg trials were a waste of time? The Hague and Geneva conventions?
If this animal didn't deserve a trial - which animal does?
Who decides which of the accused deserve trials and which don't? Where is the line drawn - that line you cross that determines the point of no
return and seals your fate? Is it killing one person - 10 - 100 - 1,000...?
Trials are not just for the accused - they are for all of us
Come on, how in the world can you sympathize with this monster. Our Armed forces are the best in the world, I do believe they knew exactly what they
were doing and were justified in doing so.
They were justified in killing him if they believe they were being threatened - which is what they claim. Whether or not that's what really happened,
I suppose we'll have to take their word for it. But, this is not at all what you're asking. What you're asking is: Why shouldn't they just kill
him - he's a monster.
The title of your thread seems to suggest that you're tired of hearing people ask why he wasn't brought in for trial. You try to explain why he
doesn't deserve one - but you don't do that very well. His death protects us from nothing. Any crimes forthcoming - even those done in his name -
won't be done by him.
And trying a man for the crimes for which he's been accused has nothing whatsoever to do with sympathy. I think you are very confused about what
justice really means. Either that or you're not interested in the idea even a little bit. You just want blood.
Well okay, no surprise there.....we know with radical Islam violence is what they thrive on so of course they want revenge and more violence. I mean
after all, isn't that what the holy Q'uran calls for?
Really? And how are we different? We had a chance to be different - that chance is gone.
Is that what the Quran calls for? How would you know? Did somebody tell you that - or are you a scholar?
Well, if that is what they believe, all you have to counter that with is what you believe.
What do you believe? What do you stand for?
