You are so Liberal you can't see where there is a difference, you are just like Obama wanting to bring the Guitmo prisoners to American soil and try them in civilian courts. You can't bring yourself to admit we are at war and that the people attacking us do not respect American laws and values. If an American points a gun at the President he is gunned down on the spot, no trial, no hearing, no chance at freedom, he is dead. What makes the lives of the people who died on 9/11 less valuable? What makes the lives of those the terrorists desire to kill next less valuable?
I asked you about the civil war for a reason hugo, when faced with war we have to make hard decisions. Do you think only southern people holding guns were the only people attacked or hurt by the North? Did we respect their rights? Do you think we should have let the South break off so we could cling to a claim of virtue at not violating some American's rights? What about the rights of the Americans on those planes on 9/11? Why do people like you worry about possibly violating the rights of a terrorist but don't even blink an eye for those the terrorists kill?
