    Yet the "double standards" among many among us see us as the villain . Every time I engage in such BS it makes me want to reach for the antacids.

    Why must we let them live? Wow!

    The reason why is because we don't have to kill them.

    We are dealing with people that are sitting in cells that we don't even know if they are guilty or not. If guilty they should be treated like anyone else that is guilty of a crime, and since I don't believe the state should have the power to kill people for crimes, I can not agree with them killing anyone in Gitmo either.

    No, we bomb people from above in unmanned drones. At least they have the balls to put their own lives on the line.

    Shadows?
    No fear. Simply prudence in the face of the same harsh realities you're seemingly more comfortable ignoring. It's interesting that you seek to substantiate your position on the basis of what you consider to be acceptable losses.

    Are you afraid that, in placing the needs of the many before your achey breaky heart, your apologist pat on the back won't seem quite so deserved?

    At this point, let them go. What can they do to us?
    Unlike you I was in Afghanistan. They just would cut your head off. Without trial

If we capture more extract what information we can by whatever methods useful and then dispose of the jihadists corpses in the most un-Muslim way we can, with absolutely NO respect for them or theirs.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Again, I believe that in having jettisoned such idealism, their life is forfeit.

    No need for one never has been. They were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sucks to be them.
