How about the way that Gilad Shalit was treated. Huh? A real model of how to treat an enemy soldier. Look behind you, Ahmad. That stain marking you travels isn't tomato juice. It's maybe A-Negative.

What, these guys are too good to be martyrs? Don't do the crime if you can't do the time (append: in the dark).

I've been thinking the same thing. Their Martyrs are always running away unless they in a market place amongst their own. You know, driving those SUV's til the drone finds them. This Martyr crap is just BS and another word for dead. Got caught. Always see them throwing rocks and running like jack rabbits? Step up. Why, they now have to bribe them. See the bounty on American Ambassadors and Servicemen in Yemen? Cowardly fcuks, all of them.

Prison should suck so bad that they'd rather blow up.

One word response to their bounty...drone.

All we need to do is outbid those al Q mo fuggers.

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Aerial reconnaissance and attack drones have had a liberating effect on U.S. military forces, but they are deeply hated by many people and their overuse could jeopardize Washington's broader objectives, retired General Stanley McChrystal said on Monday.

McChrystal, who authored the U.S. counterinsurgency strategy in Afghanistan, said use of drones had enabled him to carry out missions with smaller groups of special operations forces because the "eye in the sky" provided backup security.

"What scares me about drone strikes is how they are perceived around the world," he said in an interview. "The resentment created by American use of unmanned strikes ... is much greater than the average American appreciates. They are hated on a visceral level, even by people who've never seen one or seen the effects of one."

McChrystal said the use of drones exacerbates a "perception of American arrogance that says,'Well we can fly where we want, we can shoot where we want, because we can.'"

"The High Court ruled Tuesday that terrorist security prisoners were not eligible for free university education in Israeli schools. The permission and assistance extended to prisoners convicted of criminal activities that supplies them with free courses and degree programs at Israel's Open University does not apply to prisoners convicted of terror activities, the court ruled.
The ruling came in response to a lawsuit by three terrorist prisoners who claimed they were being discriminated against because prison authorities refused to enroll them in an Open University program and pay their tuition. "

Israel should just stop taking prisoners.

"On Monday, retired US General McChrystal said that drones had helped US troops but were hated around the world and that their overuse could jeopardise American security."

How is it possible to "overuse" drones? That's like saying you are having "too much" fun.
It is going to be above freezing for the second day in a row. Truly, Michiganders are God's Chosen.

Speaking of thin ice, I'm beginning to see why we need a new SECDEF.

Well, they're not brand new. LOL Some more out with the old and in with new. I love the "there's nothing in International law" tact. That will frost Screwy's cucumber.

I like this guy a lot, especially since he helped craft the US style of asymmetric warfare to counter the Islamist's version of asymmetry. Kind of like Sean Connery in The Untouchables...
