    I know what you mean but you have to admit that executing a mass murderer prevents THAT murderer from ever doing it again, right?

    We are at war with this garbage. The only reason they are alive is that we wanted the information they had. Otherwise they would have been shot on sight. I do not see the need for a trial. If your humanity requires it, knock yourself out! Just make sure they receive wartime handling and wartime sentences.

    Traitors can and have gotten the death sentence for the influence their leaking of classified material had. Terrorists are at least that bad.

    You don't think we maybe should make sure the people we are executing are actually guilty first? Suppose they are innocent & we made a mistake? Kill innocent people?

    Again, I completely disagree. I do not think we will be changing each other's minds any time soon.

    What about a little bit of waterboarding before execution

    Capital Punishment is state sanctioned murder.

    If we kill them, they will be considered martyrs by their fellow terrorists.

    We must never allow them to achieve this.

    Prison for life without parole is better.

    Don't forget a life time of Happy Meals, just to add to the deterrence.

    Is this a snide rebuttal?

    Why is that? I've got no problem with a thousand dead martyrs. It's certainly better than a thousand living slimebags we've got to feed.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
