    Right alongside the lives of thousands of specifically-targeted, unsuspecting civilians who played no part in such things.

    So you support the Obama administration as using our court system instead of military procedures to process these detainees? And even then don't think a death penalty should be applied? Oh golly gee, I'm glad you are not the one looking out for me. Cheers!

    What they do does not concern me. It's what we do that matters to me. I do not support a government that murders innocent people.

    Lookit. You want to slough off a really complicated, important issue with garbage replies like, 'Bleeding hearts live in a fairy tale world of hand holding and vanquishing their foes with hugs and kisses.' you're gonna be treated with the degree of respect you deserve. You're going to get lots of replies and affirmations from fellow idiots and morons with their lowbrow bumper-sticker philosophies and be left out of serious discussion of the topic. Maybe that works for you.

    If they were out on the battlefield fighting, then they should have done it then. Too late now, IMO. Besides, we don't even KNOW if they're all guilty.

    Of course we should use the court system on these detainees. They are not POWs. They are people being detained as criminals who should have been read their rights, been given lawyers and tried or released years ago.

    Why the hell not?

    I never claimed I was, and I'm not the one screaming for blood either.
