September 11, 2001: Terrorists and hijackers run up a bill they cannot possibly pay

December 7, 1941: destruction of the U.S.S. Arizona
It was fun for the perpetrators while it lasted...

... but the final bill was pretty expensive, wasn't it? (Nagasaki, 1945)

George Bush: "I want bin Laden dead or alive." I think Patrick McGoohan put it much better as Edward Longshanks in Braveheart: "I want him alive; dead will do just as well." (Bin Laden is, however, no William Wallace.)

What to do with bin Laden's remains:

This is NOT Patriotism

The following people and organizations are doing the enemy's work for him. The following are malicious and they are outright scum.

Gun Control Supporters (Million Mom March, Handgun Control Inc.): where do you stand? Million Mom March president Mary Leigh Blek told the following whopper at the United Nations a while ago: No, Ms. Blek, our country was not at war then, but it is now. Gun control supporters: are you going to line up with the passengers of United Airlines Flight 93, who at least tried to fight back against their killers? Or are you going to help the enemies of the United States by disarming your fellow citizens and turning our streets into free-for-all killing zones for any monster who decides to follow up on the events of September 11?

I know you would not knowingly help the enemies of the United States; the scum who perpetrated the terrorism have no friends in this country. You might do so through misguided actions. For example, during the Second World War, a stranger who asked when a certain ship could be a Nazi spy who would then tell a waiting U-boat. That's why Second World War posters said, "Loose lips sink ships."

Think about the subhumans who perpetrated the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks. They thought nothing of hijacking airplanes full of unarmed men, women, and children, and then flying those airplanes into buildings full of more civilians. Do you think that anyone like them, e.g. sleeper agents in the United States, would have any qualms about walking into a school, hospital, church, synagogue, nursing home, office, or shopping mall, and opening fire? If you agitate for disarmament of your fellow citizens you will make that monster's job all that much easier.

The heroes on Flight 93 didn't survive, although their courageous actions may well have saved others on the ground. That armed citizen with the CCW (Carry Concealed Weapon) permit might be tomorrow's hero when some monster starts shooting (or knifing, or bombing). Do you want to be responsible for disarming the hero/heroine?

K-Mart pulled firearms and ammunition from its store on September 11, when Americans might have needed them more than ever. Wal-Mart did not (gun sales were up 70 percent, ammunition sales 140 percent, per the 09/18 Wall Street Journal). Wal-Mart is getting my business from now on.

Terrorists: what you accomplished

"As for what a true martyr can expect, Chief Mufti of the Palestinian Authority Police, Sheik Abd Al-Salam Skheidm, spelled it out in 1999. "From the moment his first drop of blood spills, he feels no pain and he is absolved of all his sins; he sees his seat in heaven; he is spared the  tortures of the grave; he is spared the horrors of the Day of Judgment; he is married to 70 black-eyed women; he can vouch for 70 of his family members to enter paradise; he earns the crown of glory, whose precious stone is worth all  the world." (Mona Charen, "U.S. needs to  recognize differences between Palestinian, Israeli responses.")

Q: How can you tell when a terrorist is well hung?
A: You can't get your finger between his neck and the noose.

Given the popularity of the Lord of the Rings movies, I couldn't resist the following. Given the amazing effectiveness of Yankee technology and innovation, you realize of course that we COULD have something like this:

How to Kill Terrorists on Airplanes

This information is unlikely to help hijackers. If passengers see a few people (males, and probably although not necessarily of Middle Eastern origin) begin to assemble items of this nature, they will notify the flight crew and take combined action to stop them. If a hijacking is already in progress, however, assembly of these improvised weapons becomes a legitimate activity ("reasonable and necessary force").

Capture or kill?

A followup on the above, "Capture or Kill?" In Israel, two very brave civilians apprehended a terrorist with an explosive belt. They held him down and told the people around them to get away. They also tried to talk the terrorist into surrendering but he continued to struggle. The two men realized that he was going to get loose. One said, "I'll count to three, then run." They did and they escaped safely. The terrorist, however, detonated his bomb, killed a 71-year-old woman, and wounded several other innocent people. Had the two men asked a third person to do what I described above-- stomp the terrorist's head until he dies, or strangle him with a belt--, that woman would probably be alive today. They are still heroes (their courageous action saved at least a dozen other innocent people) but this example illustrates why terrorists should not be given the benefit of the doubt.
