    I think he'd have some difficulty being unhung.

    Come to think of it, if he's a girl, he wouldn't be hung at all....

    but that's another story.

    Then you are guilty by association by owning a gun because of the acts of other gun owners and should bear the punishment of having your guns taken away as well. Every US soldier should also be guilty of war crimes as punishment for the dumbass who rapes a local girl or gets hopped up on adrenaline and takes down a family. There is no end to your faulty logic in spite of that which you want to rationalize.

    Good for you but ipso facto is meaningless in this context.

    Look it up.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    that's your story and you want to stick to it? glad to see that the some members of the far left are supporting one of the most reactionary-anti freedom, anti female- collection of scumbags to ever exist. ISIS has declared war on the left. doesn't that mean any member of ISIS is fair game?

    As others have said, try them for treason and then execute them.

    They're fighting the governments of Syria and Iraq. Does that make them treasonous?

    Point. But are we talking about guilt by association? Because this is still an American citizen standing in front of you, handcuffed, captured in action in Iraq. Do you charge him with treason?
