  • No fighting in the war room!

    Anyone following this 9-11 show trial? Turns out the way to avoid being sentenced to death in Guantanamo Bay is to confess and plead guilty and demand as a condition of pleading guilty that you will definitely be executed. Apparently this then throws the whole hitherto kangaroo legal system into convulsions as to whether you can execute somebody who wants to commit suicide. Utterly bonkers.

      I thought their strategy was to ensure martyrdom.. but retracted the offer to plead guilty when they were not promised execution.

        I may be a little jaded but i really think the penalty for attempting suicide should be death. :twisted:

          This is way too malicious, but couldn't we put them all in the same room, with a nice assortment of cutlery, and let them sort it out for themselves?

              Another glimpse of Marlow's redeeming residual viscousness. :evil:

                Viscousness - in that I pour slowly?! :twisted:

                I like to think of myself as a pragmatist, as attested to by the post before yours!

                  Why are you even bothering with the show-trial? Keeping them all in Gitmo was hardly the height of respect for human rights, due process or observance of international law, so why bother with a so-called trial? Just shoot them. They'll end up dead, 'justice' will be served, they get to be martyrs, so everyone's happy!
