    It is so bad in this country, that thanks to Obama and our over zealous media people are afraid to call terrorists "radical Muslims, and there terrorists acts, "terror!"

    Were the explosions in New Jersy and New York acts of terror, or misguided, random events by bad guys needing to be arrested and put on trial to answer for their criminal behaviors? Personally, we are at war, and the enemy is living down the street fromus waiting for their call to duty, and an opportunity to kill a few more Americans ... and when the enemy of our nation spills innocent American blood, on American soil, and they are out of uniform, they are nothing less then a spy, deserving immediate execution, no trial! No arrest warrant! No right to an attorney! No accomodations given to a criminal, because they committed an act of treason, especially those who are citizens of this country! I say shoot them on the spot and save the taxpayers the cost of housing them! Putting them on trial. And locking them up with all the creature comforts granted normal criminals. These people are enemies of this country, and need to be treated as such.

    What say you?

    The Honorable Mayor of New York denounced it as an intentional act, meaning that it was done on purpose and not accidently. I think that we should let it rest there until a blue-ribbon committee of East Coast Ivy League graduates can study the matter for a few months and see what the correlation is to Climate Change. :Alien:Alien:Alien

    This is how it used to be dealt with but no "progressive" administration official will openly admit to even an official suggestion of a declaration of war with islamic terrorists and their plan of world domination under the caliphate of Sharia law.

    In our history we see the end of WWII due to the disintegration of upwards of 200,000 men (mostly elderly), women and children with perhaps that many more deaths in the disease and radiation poisoning aftermath of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

    This "cruel" response to their evil put an end to Hirohito's similar plan of cruel terror (Kamikaze rather than Jihad) and bloodshed to achieve world domination.

    Today, as you take note, we treat these Jihadi murderers with more care and concern than our own veterans.

    Enemies of our country need to know this precept concerning our law enforcement and military personnel:

    4 ... But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

    Show the Muslim world how a true democracy works. Give them their trial. Let them attempt a defense. Treat them as humans, not animals. Let's not be like radical Islam and kill people without due process. (I thought Sharia law was dreadful?)

    Once they've been convicted, then kill 'em.

    Due process? What process are terrorists due When in the history of America have we given soldiers on the battle field any due process? Makes no sense.

    Your attempt at sarcastic humor does not suit you well. Not well at all. But I'll give Donald a call and get his view. ;)

    It's so bad in this country that thanks to the folks at Fox News, people in the GOP are afraid to admit they have white privilege. It's become dirty to say.

    And I frankly don't hear too much either out of of folks calling the white guys shooting up churches and movie theaters domestic terrorists.

    If is it so bad here, why don't you move where it isn't so bad and let us in on where that might be. Thanks.

    We need to realize that there are two extremes here. One side is afraid to call anything terrorism, and the other calls everything terrorism. There are crimes that are terrorism going on, but then there are crimes that are not terrorism going on.

    Terrorism has to have a goal. It's inciting fear foe the purpose of change. If a man (even a Muslim extremists) blows people up, and his only goal is to kill, then it's not technically terrorism. Now, I'm ok with calling it that, as it is still using fear tactics.

    But, not every bomb, not every shooting, is a terrorist act. And just because someone claims Allah as lord does not mean that his crime is terrorism.

    Now, someone posed a question about when do we give soldiers on the battlefield due process. When we capture them. If they are actively engaged in combat, then to kill them is fair game. But if they are captured, then they are given due process (of course, this is also due to a lot more stipulations than a civilian situation).

    Interesting and speaks to the killing of Blacks by police officers. Part of what BLM and other Blacks have been saying is that the guys don't get due process. The officers have become the judge, jury and executioner all in one. But then the OFFICERS are afforded due process.

    But back to the terrorism. I think you're perhaps trying to explain away the double standard. Folks complain about Obama not saying radical Islam, but the same folks don't ever say radical "Christian" or radical crazy white dude. The latter are much more prevalent in the US.

    How do you figure this is a black/white thing? Or blacks being killed by whites? Really, Zaac, give it a rest for a while.

    I didn't say that the terrorism was a black/white thing so get your drawers out of a wad. I was speaking as an aside to what Sapper said on due process (in bold)and then switched back to the terrorism just as I said.
