Government assassinations? They've been happening since governments were first formed. All of a sudden
there's a whole slew of dainty little flowers who want to pretend that there aren't really bad people
out there and opt for sending nastigrams to such people via email or Social Networking and pretending they
will just go away. Unfortunately, most terrorists, especially those acting from a so-called "religious"
zeal would like to kill you and your entire family, your neighborhood, city or country and laugh about it.
"But they're AMERICANS!"
Right. Americans who want to kill you and your entire family, neighborhood, city or country.
For that they deserve a special pass, because we all know that they can't be bad because they're "Americans".
Anyone who lives on the North American or South American continent is an American. It's just a label. A
person's true nature is revealed by their actions, not a label applied to them.
"But what about the Rule of Law?"
While the Rule of Law is an amazing and desirable standard to live by, it unfortunately won't shield you
from someone shooting at you or detonating an explosive device next to you.
We should be capturing them and bring them to trial!
Wasting resources and possibly MORE lives attempting to hunt them down in the far corners of the world.
Exactly how many other people have to die to make killing them an acceptable option? Are YOU willing to be
a victim? How about a family member? A friend? Whom are you willing to sacrifice in the terrorist's place?
What about "collateral" casualties?
What about them? The people who allow the terrorists to live amongst them know who they are and what
they do. Do you think they give one iota of thought about you and your family, friend, coworkers, neighbors and
so on who are killed when the terrorist's bomb goes off or they mow people down with a machine gun?
We depend on our government to protect us and to do what is necessary for that cause. If you don't like it,
your choices are to vote in a different government, fight the government or leave the country. Everyone will have
to accept that the world isn't a perfect place and is only going to get more dangerous, or continue to live in their
self-imposed la-la land until reality comes knocking on their door. By then it will probably be too late.
