    How far is Gitmo from the Bermuda Triangle?

    A slow cruise for the defense and terrorists wouldn’t be out of order, would it?

    Captioned: “Trouble Brewing”

    cause “uncertainty and delay”.
    And just what have we had for about ten years now?
    Put the bastard on trial for… I dunno, ten counts of murder. If he doesn’t get death, then ten more, and keep it up until we get to kill him.
    At ten at a time, we can keep him on trial up to ~300 times. Sooner or later he’ll get a hanging judge.
    Who gives a shit about nickle & dime charges like conspiracy and stealing twinkies and spitting in public?
    Maybe he should just accidentally drown going for a swim in the next huuricane.

    Another sign of trouble brewing. Uhbama just fired CENTCOM commander Gen. James Mattis. …source The Blaze: “General Mattis was travelling and in a meeting when an aide passed him a note telling him that the Pentagon had announced his replacement as head of Central Command. It was news to him — he hadn’t received a phone call or a heads-up from anyone at the Pentagon or the White House.”

    It seems he had asked embarrassing questions as the White House glitterati discussed options for Iran –
    WH – We’ll stop Iran’s nuclear program one way or another. Mattis – what do you do with Iran once the nuclear issue is resolved and it remains a foe? What do you do if Iran then develops conventional capabilities that could make it hazardous for U.S. Navy ships to operate in the Persian Gulf? He kept saying, “And then what?”
    And Uhbama and Co., certain they were always the smartest people in the room, became uncomfortable, because they couldn’t answer. Their shallow bullshit had been easily scraped aside by a veteran warrior, and they didn’t like it, so they didn’t even have the courtesy to give him a heads up or a chance to resign. They fucked him in the ass without even the courtesy of a reacharound.

    Uhbama will gut the military from every direction; funding, removing competent officers, telling warriors to stand down, encouraging PC to the detriment of force readiness, rewarding ass kissing rather than results, driving good men out with trumped up charges; in short, everything seen at a corrupt medieval court.
    The Man Who Would Be King Caliph is making his moves now.

    Courts and judges and lawyers are not justice. In fact, the more laws a society enacts, the less justice it provides for victims.

    Law = Justice is a flawed statement. The law is only a tool, a device, and in itself no more valuable than those who use or abuse it.

    I gotta go with Barry Goldwater on assholes like KSM: “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”

    With that in mind, I’d like to see KSM extremely dead with moderate cost, say . . . something like an accidental fall down 30 flights of stairs, or a chicken bone lodged permanently in his pericardium, or a terrible mistake in which concentrated hemlock found its way into his couscous. My favorite would be an exploding Qur’an.

    They’ll never leave this world free men. How they leave is the question. I prefer the quicker method and I’m not particularly concerned about whether it’s painless, or not.

    KSM in cahoots w Bin Laden planned 9-11. KSM bragged about it and *suddenly* went into hiding in Pakistan. Dubya, touting *Religion of Peace* crap, air dropped a dirigible of 1000 dollar bills on Pakistan—and unwittingly,
    triggered a Pakistani muzzie SOP trait of buttfucking (…figuratively & literally)their fellow muzzies.

    Regrettably, Dubya lacked a “Texas Ranger Rool”– featured in Lonesome Dove, where they hung Jake Spoon for being a weak flatpeter. Sooo, Dubya locked KSM up in a Caribbean Resort POW camp and allowed all manner of bullshit from law talkers jaw-flappin about Merican justice.

    IT. IS. A. WAR. TO. THE FINISH! as far as Islam is concerned; Infidels either convert or die!!!! If Osama bin Ladin got smoked (w/o no trial…) , whodafuk is KSM to be offerred a trial instead of a fucking firing squad???

    I can not predict how many more American citizens are gonna have to die before we get *Teh Clue*, but I am certain that they will, unless and until WE demand our government do what a raghead would do,,,,,,,,,,,,and that ain`t never, ever, gonna be no trial; evah——–

    WE got 2 choices:
    1. The Alamo
    2. San Jacinto

    I know which one I would choose.

    ColJ, we may need to have an Alamo before enough people wake the fuck up to have a San Jacinto.

    That’s what we get when we (and I don’t mean “we here”) insist on trying terrorists in a civilian court.

    Did they read him his rights? Let him make a phone call? Offer him a salami sandwich?
