The quote was from the AP article you posted.
Basically what I'm saying is that it's a slippery slope. Yes, they were terrorists, and yes, they deserve to die. But I think what RP is saying is they are still U.S. citizens. And the government assassinating citizens in that manor leaves a sour taste in the mouth.
My point was our government has already stated that they are watching our own citizens, particularly veterans, and with unconstitutional laws like the "Patriot" act they can already violate our rights by declaring someone a "possible terrorist."
Yes, it IS a jump, but doesn't seem like a far one to me. Always be vigilant. Politicians and Judges are CONSTANTLY eroding our rights and freedoms.
NEVER make the mistake of believing that the government has YOUR best interest in mind.
Oh,ok,I get that now,I just wanted to make sure before I responded and looked stupid for doing so
You're right,they are trying to take freedoms and impose big-brother actions....but need to focus on real problems...veterans are just an excuse the left loves to use...that's why the left is retarded...parents shouldn't try to reproduce on Crack!!
The Patriot act,please correct me if I'm wrong, was to tap cell phones?
It is an invasion of privacy no doubt,I don't agree with it...but they need to think about targets,not Joe Smoe
In Alawarky"s;I know I spelled it wrong,this (only in my opinion-not the gov't ) is a different kind of case.
He was calling for recruits for islam and for destruction of the infadels of the US and any other country....meaning men,women,children...for no reason other than not following his belief,and had you-tubes by the dozens to get more and do more,and kill more innocent people.
That to me is not a US citizen,maybe by birth,but not by what he felt,or what he believed,he'd been in Yemen several years now,organizing our fate.
That is the difference that I see.....I don't depend on the gov't...that's for sure
Our case is way different,we're just cussin' the jack-arses in office...we aren't publicly threatening to plot a kill for them...just wipe them at the polls...a vote...not a bomb or gun shot like alwarky is saying...
If they pulled that over here against people like us who are just cussin' them....then they should start wiping out the protesting liberals,but that hasn't happened yet...so we're safe
Alwarky was a very serious threat,equivalent to a cop that some one threatens and he shoots...no court there either really.
When lives are threatened by an individual, measures are taken...this guy was bad,and made himself well known to be as such...that was my point
I respect what you're sayin' bud
It's just not the world we grew up in...wish it was though
