A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
So now we are going to try the terrorists in civilian federal trials in New York City, just blocks away from the site of the former World Trade Center Twin Towers, where 3,000 innocents were murdered. Can you possible see how this move by the Obama Regime makes the US appear weak, indecisive, and just plain DUMB to our enemies?
The terrorists had already been charged in military courts. Now the government is snatching them out of the hands of the one judicial system in America where justice for their heinous acts was certain. Instead they will be provided with a soapbox upon which to preach their hatred of America to their acolytes around the world.
As I listen to all the whining from the Left, and from the Right, about the terrible, terrible, way we are treating those poor terrorists who want to kill us, and our kids, it curdles my stomach!
What about the families of the 3,000 they murdered? What about the 5,000 more who have given their lives in combat against their like in the Iraq and Afghanistan where the battles rage on.
Now think about this for a moment: Has anyone considered the imminent danger to every member of the jury/juries in these terrorist trials? It is certainly within the realm of possibility that some Islamic religious authority, somewhere, will issue a “Fatwa” calling for the death of every member of those juries. (A fatwa is issued by a recognized religious authority in Islam. SOURCE). That Fatwa would stand, I suspect, for the lifetimes of those jurors. I have to wonder if the government has made arrangements to place every juror in the Federal Witness Program, along with their immediate families, for the remainder of their lives? (Fatwas involving violence are more likely to be well known than other fatwas, especially to non-Muslims. One possible reason is that non-Muslims regard most fatwas as not affecting them, but fatwas involving violence can potentially affect them. Fatwas do not only affect Non-muslims. From: Wikipedia)
Isn’t this question being considered? Think about it. Who the heck is going to want to serve on those juries? Surely they will be surrounded by armed guards 24 hours a day for months and possibly even years as these trials grind on. As we know, terrorist trials have a way of lasting not weeks, not months, but years.
I am now more convinced than ever that the longhaired clowns from the sixties who chanted: “peace, love, and pot,” are running the US government now. (I have long been convinced they are running the universities, colleges, and public schools in this country.)
I cannot, for the life of me, understand how they can be so stupid! So, utterly, hopelessly, stupid! I guess all that “funny weed” screwed-up their brains! That has to be the answer. Stupidity of that magnitude is not natural. It has to be self-induced.
When we finally get a group of those rabid killers caged up, the “limp-wristed,” and “jelly-spined,” among us begin to worry that we might treat them badly and they would, in turn, think badly of us -- like they loved us before we captured their sorry behinds and tossed them in the can!
I swear… if the Mainstream Media, and the Political Left, of today, had been around during the Second World War, all of us on the east coast would be speaking German and the folks on the west coast would be speaking Japanese.
We have given birth to a generation of wimps!
Look, when some group of “religious nuts” publicly vows to kill you and makes a rather emphatic attempt at it, and in the process manages to kill, oh, say, 3000 of our citizens, I have to believe they are serious… and we are duty bound, as Americans, to hunt them down… and liquidate them by any, and all, means necessary. Eradicate as many as it takes to remove the threat to my family and yours.
If some manage to be taken alive, cage them for the rest of their natural lives. Give them food and water, and little else, until their respective deity calls them home!
I am not interested in treating them with kindness. Not in the least. The fact that they still have a pulse is straining my “compassion limits” as it is.
The MSM, the Political Left, and even some on the Political Right, have managed to make the US the laughing stock of the Middle East! They think we’re a bunch of pansies… and who can blame them. We sure as heck act like it!
All the moaning, and whining, about those poor fruitcakes in Gitmo, is sickening. Some of those guys are living better IN PRISON than they ever did before we grabbed their sorry behinds and tossed them in those cages.
So, if you feel really, really, bad about our treatment of the terrorists, just keep it to yourself. I don’t want to hear it. Your cowering posture and your groveling is making us all look bad. And, in my opinion, it is bordering on giving aid and comfort to the enemy!
We have 3000 dead, from the attack in New York, and another 5,000, or so, dead in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the socialists running the US government these days want to play “patty-cake” with those bloodthirsty killers???
I know the scriptures say:” Vengeance is mine, sayth the Lord.” That’s fine by me… as long as He hurries it up -- and lets me watch!
