    I want to know which it is.


    If "any American" also tries to blow something up here like they did, I hope they DO suffer their same fate.
    Let them languish for 50 years without a trial.
    I have no sympathy for radical Islamic terrorists.
    No sympathy at all.
    A weekly caning would be fine with me too.

    They should not benefit from the same system they intend to destroy.

    The same could be said of Epstein. He was murdered while waiting for his trial. Everyone cheered.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    This is the tyrant in you "speaking".There is something not quite right with you.

    I agree that they should pay for their crimes -- or for their plans to commit crimes -- but until a person is convicted, I'm still an advocate of the "innocent until proved guilty in a court of law" thing.

    The "tiger cages" presents an interesting scenario!

    Terrorists have been tried in civilian courts in this country with great effectiveness. (The first WTC bombers come to mind.) If the American government insists on proclaiming the "War on Terror" to encompass the entire world and everyone in it, until such time as "terrorism" ceases to exist, then the United States and all allied countries have logically to be considered to be part of the "war zone". The next step is re-categorize virtually all violent crime as military offenses, effectively putting the U.S. under martial law. Are you concerned about the militarization of domestic police agencies now? Keep sending civilians before military tribunals and see what you eventually get.

    So, it's an aye for an aye, then? I misread it.

    Do you really think our justice system will rub off on them and be a positive influence? I do not.
    If the Second falls, the Constitution falls. NWO is an addiction that, like all addictions, will fail YOU. Get rid of the pushers. Abolish the seditious Democrat Party.

    A silly baseless fear.

    The military can handle terrorists. I expect many civilians would find the sentences from military panels to be light in many instances.
