The unfortunate thing for me is that those making foreign policy decisions today don't know their ass from a hot rock and have never been east of New York... good luck with that! Where was our State Dept when the phone rang at 3:00am? Phil

Where is the SV Quest today? Did the Navy tow it to a port?

First time I read this thread, interesting views on the death penalty, I never thought of it as retribution or revenge, prefer to think of it as garbage disposal.

Ending life is garbage disposal. Nice. That is what leads to gitmo. Where untried people are incarcerated. Leads to the high incarceration rate in the land of the free . Let me guess your left of center . Live long freedom and liberty. Except we should kill and ban people that don't have your point of view. We will protect life liberty and property when convenient.
Wrong the libertarian knows we protect life first then liberty and last property. Without discrimination.
Life is highest in the chain garbage is what is spewed by dolts dangling by a thread of insecurity and dull comprehension.

No. That isn't what he said at all. It isn't about killing people who disagree, it's about removing killers from society where they have proven they are willing and capable of causing harm to others. It's about deterring aggression.

I never fail to be amazed when I see pirates defended on these forums. These are people who crossed the line to harm others for personal gain. In some cases they've killed others.
