Yep. Agreed. Terrorists and dictators should be handled severely and quickly. Handled severely should be read as killed for those who, like me, need direct language. One could argue that with each step Trump takes down dictator lane, he gets one step closer to being handled severely himself. It would be smart for those around Trump to explain these facts of life to him before he goes too far.
…and if he doesn’t listen to the advice given by people concerned for his and the nations safety, we could call that suicidal behavior. Just one more reason to impeach him. Justice is served how and when it has to be. You don’t have to like it, but it remains justice in any case.
Due process is reserved for people who respect the process.
Justice is served in the time and place that it has to be. In the case of Saddam Hussein, who did get his trial, was subjected to due process, justice was hardly gentle. Slightly more gentle than what Gaddafi felt. You are wasting your sympathy lamenting the death of Baghdadi. Opining about the lack of due process. He’d cut your head off as soon as look at you. Not everyone deserves a fair trial. Deserters on a battlefield get a bullet in the back, if they are lucky. Terrorists, dictators and frausters like Trump take advantage of the system. They all count on most people not being willing to shoot them for their misbehavior. I’m for getting rid of the garbage when it is identified. Sometimes that means justice is brutal.
If you are sent to serve in a war, all your fellow soldiers rely on you to do your job. If you don’t do your job, their lives are at risk. The military is a machine whose parts are people. Like any machine will, the military breaks down if the parts don’t work the way they are supposed to work. If you don’t want to fight and die, then don’t go to war. Don’t sign up for the military.
I don’t spit on people who dodged the draft and were honest about it. Go to Canada. Go to jail. Ol’ BoneSpurs is the only kind of draft dodger I will spit on. The kind that made up shit to keep himself from serving. The kind that buys their way out of service, a convenience denied to the poor. Don’t skip out and pretend that you were justified in escaping your duty. You aren’t, no matter how much money you have in your pocket.
Shooting deserters in the back is not murder if that is the right thing to do. If that is what keeps the military machine running the way it is supposed to. It’s still taking another person’s life, but sometimes that has to be done. I hope to get out of life without having to kill another person. That is why I didn’t join the military. I know I can kill, I simply don’t want to anymore. Not killing would be winning the game, in my estimation. How to win the game of life, escape without taking another person’s life. Baghdadi lost that game a long, long time ago.
Donald Trump is a fake. Fake as in you can tell when the guy is reading off the script. He’s horrible at linking thoughts together and clearly resents being told to stay on point. But he loves watching people blow up. You can tell that just by the animation in his voice listening to him describe how Baghdadi dies to the reporters at the press conference. It is sickening.
