Geneva Applies To Soldiers In Uniform- Not These Jerks

With all due respect to the families of Daniel Pearl and Nicholas Berg, every time liberals start crying about the "brutality and torture" at Guantanamo Bay, we should play on TV or somewhere the footage of both innocents having their heads cut off by the terrorist animals. Yes, the US should accord its prisoners with a certain base level of humanity. But, the Geneva Convention should not be applied.

Thomas Sowell wrote in "Looking Back":

What will future generations think when they see the front pages of our leading newspapers repeatedly preoccupied with whether we are treating captured cut-throats nicely enough? What will they think when they see the Geneva Convention invoked to protect people who are excluded from protection by the Geneva Convention?

During World War II, German soldiers who were captured not wearing the uniform of their own army were simply lined up against a wall and shot dead by American troops.

This was not a scandal. Far from being covered up by the military, movies were taken of the executions and have since been shown on the History Channel. We understood then that the Geneva Convention protected people who obeyed the Geneva Convention, not those who didn't -- as terrorists today certainly do not.

The liberals and their MSM want a neat little war so they can believe they are above the harshness of life. They use "painless" taxes to take care of the "rabble" who have health, retirement and housing needs. They know because they have read about it. They always take the clean and painless approach without hurting anyone's feelings. Ask Bill Cosby how that approach is working.

Wars are fought dirty and the people we are currently fighting deserve the least of our sympathies.
