Where the US is tripping over itself to release terrorists from GITMO, Jordan executes two al Qaeda terrorists in response to the brutal burning alive of one of its captured pilots.
I completely support this response. It is what is missing from our own country’s, with its excessive concern for law, taking its time, and ordinary procedures in the face of an extraordinary threat. You have to show strength and the willingness to be brutal in the face of brutality. ISIS and its allies deserve no mercy. Retaliatory executions of prisoners as “belligerent reprisals” are also well established in the law of war. This came up in the Hostage Cases, for example, at Nuremberg.
May Jordan unleash hell upon these Satanic people.
