    Republicans push to widen 'war on terror' detention - Yahoo! News

    There is no reason legally to try anyone captured during a time of War. They can legally be held until that war ends. The war on Terror has not ended. Simply hold these people like we have been doing. Review their status and release those we have no reason to hold.

    Unless of course one of you dimwits that thinks trials are the way to go can explain how a man taken by the military, with no due process, no Miranda, no lawyer before interrogations can be tried in a US Federal Court.

    We already had one who got almost all the evidence tossed out because of the interrogation method. We have another with a hung jury.

    Nope, the Congressional authority is what provides the money for Afghanistan and Iraq. And is exactly what this Congressman is talking about fine tuning.

    This is awfully convenient when your heroes won't define what constitutes the potential end of your perpetual war (of utter fraud). This way, you can pretend we're in a "time of War" for as long as it takes to rape those countries of their natural resources, and let innocent taxi drivers rot in prison without representation.

    :rolleyes: Cons, raping the U.S. Constitution at every turn ... while parroting "No, YOU are!" in response.

    Emptiness.

    On the battlefield I believe it's customary to shoot em when you find em. Innit? All these stupid trials in NYC for people captured on a battlefield is just plain nutz.

    This isn't the American Civil War, with uniforms and columns. There is no way to tell who is a civilian in this.

    Maybe if your technocrat heroes stopped raping these nations for their natural resources, is that a possibility for you to consider?
