Do you support Canada's "right" to attack us to rid the USA from the evils of capital punishment? Why don't the Afgani's have the same freedom of self determination that you expect?
CANADA's "Right to Invade"...In my mind that thought is Hypothetical Lunacy...Not worth entertaining
I am all for the Afgani's freedom of self-determination...TALIBAN allows no freedom...COMPLY OR DIE...
TALIBAN has no Capital Punishment...THEY MURDER AT WILL.
As the US and other CIVILIZED Nations (Though you hold the US is Barbaric...
) are nations of the world, they seek to defeat evil as a means to attempt survival...That makes this OUR BUSINESS
I have met (that I am aware of) four murderers:
One murdered (in cold blood) four elderly persons and lives in a NJ prison
And OJ Simpson. who lives still
The other two were found "justifiable"
That some are executed is in accord with the power given a government by its citizenry to preserve Society.
Some would hold that if you don't like TALIBAN's measures you should MOVE....
To that end, & Similarly if "CAPITAL PUNISHMENT" offends one they should move elsewhere:
".....Don't want to live under Taliban law? Either move or pick up a weapon and shoot them first......"
