What, is hanging too good for ’em? A Kenyan court? What is that going to be like? If you are catching these guys on the high seas, then the whole criminal prosecution thing seems a bit much. Two pieces of rope per pirate ought to handle it.

They are not freedom fighters, just totalitarianists with a Muslim stripe:
Still, Abu Islam commented, “Gaza is a Muslim state. Why do 3,000 Christians need to celebrate openly in a territory of 1 million Muslims? Any celebrations are clearly for missionary purposes and must not be tolerated.”
No Christmas in Gaza, no religious freedom.
A woman jailed for a headscarf. While there is some legitimate issues with head coverings in areas that need to be secured (and this still begs the question if it is a good idea for courts and banks then why not everywhere?) it seems like a minor issue. But Lisa Valentine is a newcomer to the party of denied rights. Concealed weapon permit holders have been barred from carrying their firearms into area such areas for a long time. And head coverings do not even have a Constitutional Amendment guaranteeing your ability to have them.
Granted, there is a case for reasonable restrictions, just like there are on free speech (such as the weapon should only be prohibited if it cannot reasonable be used by the military, we can live with that). But Mr. Fu is still waiting for the statistics on concealed carry permit holders that commit violent first time offenses. Most murders do not spring into their crime without having committed other crimes first. Background checks for permits help to insure this, so why are confirmed law abiding people discriminated against?
A Mumbai type attack is not out of the question, especially with the edge they gain from COTS technology. Especially in large urban areas with strict firearm control. All the more reason every American should be armed and trained. It is one situation to shoot civilians while a small military force pursues you. It is quite another situation if a good portion of the civilians you are trying to shoot are shooting back.
Just keep trying to piss off everyone. Pakistan does not want to aid in the fight against terrorism. Surprise. Morons.
