- Tend do walk the 40 meters from my bed to lecture.
If we know he's guilty, what the hell is the problem doing it properly? It's like redoing your bathroom without putting in a membrane. Yeah, it's cheaper there and then, but give it a couple of years, with smoldering plaster, and you'd wish you'd done it properly the first time.My view on the subject is pretty simple after all is said and done. I totally agree with Nomix but I think interrogation is more fitting. IMO a trial is only nescessary when the accused might have a chance at innocence. In the case of someone like Bin laden they should be put to death regardless. It would have been nice to bring him in alive though, as risky as it may have been.
We know he's guilty. So we put him on trial. Then we show the world that we're superior for doing it the right way, and not getting carried away with anger and blood lust. There comes a day when history will judge us. Churchill said history would justify him, cause he intended writing it himself. But truth still catches up with him.
Listen, it's not that I like him any more than the rest of you. But if the premise is that is safely in custody, why disregard the system when the cost of doing it properly is insignifcant at worst?
