Once again I am distracted by my consulting activity so I probably won't be able to post very much for a while. In the meantime I have come to the conclusion that we really should enforce the Geneva Convention and the common rules of war relative to the war on terror. Essentially these say that anyone captured on the battlefield in civilian dress can be summarily executed. This was done to german soldiers in WW II and General washington applied this rule to Major Andre in the Revolutionary war. If the tortures at Guantanamo we should end their misery and simply execute them which would be within the Geneva Convention. It is also worth noting that the desecretion of the Qu'ran seems rather one sided since desecretion by Muslims to the Bible is deemed acceptable conduct. In fact the Qu'ran specifically calls on Muslims to kill anyone attempting to prosyletize. Very nice religion but rather one sided -- too bad the ACLU and Amnesty International is so filled with ideologues they cannot seem to read anything that leads to conclusion other than what they THINK is true. Can you spell loser?
