Much Harm, No Foul

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble doesn't begin to cover the stupidity of not accomplishing the biggest promise of Bush's career. From dead or alive to
"So we get him, and then what?" asked Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker, the outgoing Army chief of staff, at a Rotary Club of Fort Worth luncheon. "There's a temporary feeling of goodness, but in the long run, we may make him bigger than he is today.

"He's hiding, and he knows we're looking for him. We know he's not particularly effective. I'm not sure there's that great of a return" on capturing or killing bin Laden.
You aren't sure that there's that great of a return on capturing the man who was supposedly responsible for every excuse the administration uses to destroy the Constitution, declare the Bill of Rights null and void, to remove habeas corpus and causes Americans to panic at the least little thing? Exactly what kind of return do you want? What about justice?

The crew without a clue wants the death penalty for just about everything, except for the most heinous mass murderer this country has experienced. To date. If you don't believe me, you and your friends go out and knock over a grocery store, the security guard shoots at you, one of your companions fires back and kills him and an innocent bystander with a gun you didn't know he had. The police chase you down and you have a little pot on you. Oh, and you're black. Goodbye world.

Much better to have people commandeer some airplanes, fly them into a couple of buildings which causes a massive loss of life and causes the whole country to throw common sense to the wind, laugh about it for the next six years and then find out you aren't much of a priority.

And yes, I know that there will be others to take his place, goodness knows we have given them enough incenctive, but that isn't the point. Timothy McVeigh was prosecuted and executed with less evidence and definitely less loss of life by those entrusted to hunting him down.

What kind of incentive do you think it will be for the terrorists to know that they can get away with murder? The mass kind. Sounds like they might ratchet up the revenge, and why not, since there isn't a penalty.
