    its worked just fine before and it will work just fine with KSM.

    not wanting to arrest and try terrorists, suggests we might now have the evidence to prove he is a terrorist.
    You confuse the individual terrorist with a militarized organization. The argument used to tell people that "we weren't at war with Afghanistan, just the Taliban" is the same crap people pull when they try to separate Germany from the Nazi Party. Our needs to not offend people gives our enemies license to survive and laugh at us.

    And there is a difference between an Apocalyptic Terrorist and a Practical Terrorist. You can relate to a Practical Terrorist, send him to prison for rehabilitation, and release him (IRA, McVeigh, etc.). But an Apocalyptic Terrorist, who hears God's voice in his ear, needs to be convinced that his God is wrong (Thomas Muntzer, Phillip II, Osama Bin Laden). These types must be killed.

    Anyone?
    the attack on the USS Cole.

    the attack on the two African embassies

    9-11.

    I don't think there would be enough evidence to tie him to any of those enough to warrant a conviction.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Good luck with.....lol

    Do you think detaining them at places like Guantanamo is more trouble than it's worth?

    Don't you think its easier just to shoot them when found, instead of becoming poster children for Amnesty International?

    If not, why?

    Agreed. It would be extremely hard to get evidence or proof

    By their very nature, terrorist cannot be defeated by waiting for the events to occur or arresting suspected terrorists for conspiracy or some such. Once the event occurs, the terrorist insurgent has already one - punishment is irrelevant.
    Thanks for explaining and I agree with you.

    Then why should we condemn them while respecting those who truer to kill them?


    Once again, you failed to make a simple statement. Say "these soldiers did not commit a war crime", or say "these soldiers committed a war crime".


    Simple as that.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    The Taliban is not Al Qaeda. I actually think you're confusing arguments, and making connections not really there.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
