    When theres a problem, the first step to solving it is acknowledging it exists.

    There are leftist spies in academia, and thats a problem. Can we at least both agree on that?

    Hanging under the law is the punishment for traitors. But in the case of the Rosenbergs, hanging wasn't good enough and the closest thing to burning at the stake was the electric chair.

    Now desertion on the battlefield what the Obama White House calls "serving with honor and distinction" is also a capital offense under the UCMJ punishable by death from musketry. So is falling asleep while on guard duty. But rape while serving in the military is punishable by hanging.

    Interesting. Do they use the term "musketry"? Isn't hanging still an accepted means of execution by the feds (and apparently here, military)?

    Yes the first step is admitting a problem... now if a few right wing whiners would just admit they have an obsession/fixation with over hyped CON whines about 'academia' that would be a good start.

    From the rather fact light article it appears the Cubans, for all the years it is claimed they have made academia a target (mostly on the word of a defector trying to get a good sell out deal from the Americans, think 'Curveball' from the Iraq War) their success record is worse than the Israelis targeting Navy crypto specialists or the Roosians turning FBI/CIA agents.

    Given the number of 'leftie' academics in the country it appears so few 'turn' compared to the number of Navy crypto guys or FBI agents.

    Thinking the CON ranters should throw a parade for the academics and vilify the Navy's oversight of top secret code handlers- if they really think there is a problem...

    But I have to wonder just what does the CON game players think Cuba is gaining by this program? Something concrete for a change would be nice from the CON wailers....

    Musketry is used here -> http://www.loc.gov/rr/frd/Military_L..._june-1944.pdf

    But you are right, most executions by the U.S. military were by hanging.

    >" The military of the United States executed 160 soldiers and other members of the armed forces between 1942 and 1961 (these figures do not include German prisoners of war, war criminals, spies, and saboteurs executed by U.S. military authorities between 1942 and 1951). There have been no military executions since 1961 although the death penalty is still a possible punishment for several crimes under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Of these executions, 157 were carried out by the United States Army. The United States Air Force conducted the three remaining executions, one in 1950 and two in 1954. The U.S. Navy has not executed anyone since 1849. The United States Army had previously executed a total of 36 soldiers during the First World War, all taking place by hanging between 5 November 1917 and 20 June 1919. Eleven of these hangings were performed in France while the remaining 25 were carried out in continental United States.[1]
    Of the total, 106 were executed for murder (including 21 involving rape), 53 for rape and one (Eddie Slovik) for desertion..."<

    Capital punishment by the United States military - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    12 were executed by a firing squad and all of the others were hung.

    But I noticed the military now uses lethal injection. Don't know when they started this practice. The cost of Manila rope ? If the firing squad is armed with M-16's that it would take to many rounds to kill the condemned ? Probably the later.

    Of course. But that is not a problem with leftism in general, in the same way that academics working with foreign intelligence for research purposes doesn't prove that research is bad. You don't think Putin - a right-wing autocrat - tries to recruit intelligence operatives in the US?

    Your groupings mostly don't make sense. One example of revisionism is the 1960s revisionism, but its influences were multifaceted. Only one of those was strictly Marxist (neo-Marxist, to be more precise). Much of the rest was influenced by demographic minority consciousness (race, gender, sexual orientation, disability), not economic structures. Once again, those revisionisms had flaws, but were ultimately necessary because they asked new questions and delivered some insightful answers previously overlooked.
