Civilization Walks The Plank

by Caroline Glick - November 21st, 2008 - The Jerusalem Post

THE WEST'S perverse interpretations of human rights and humanitarian law, which bar it from handling one of the most acute emerging threats to the international economy, is a consequence of the West's abdication of moral and legal sanity in its dealings with international terror. In the 1960s and 1970s, when international terrorism first emerged as a threat to international security, the West adopted international treaties and conventions that tended to treat terrorism as a new form of piracy. Like piracy, terrorism was to be treated as an attack on all nations. Jurisdiction over terrorists was to be universal. Such early views were codified in early documents such as the Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Seizure of Aircraft from 1970 that established a principle of universal jurisdiction over aircraft hijackers.

Our idiot Judges have subverted any views that allow these evil people to be prosecuted. Today, pirates and terrorists alike are considered to have "civil" rights that make it impossible for our troops, or the troops of any land, to fight against these people. They are granted humanitarian rights that could easily work like the idiocy worked in the case of Ramos and Compean. There the illegal was given special privileges to prosecute our border agents, including allowing him to testify to known lies. These two border agents are now serving 10 years in jail for shooting a drug smuggler in the butt. The drug smuggler was actually forgiven and allowed to continue to smuggle drugs while he was waiting to testify, which was hidden from the jury by the Judge and also never prosecuted.

This is the kind of insanity that Caroline Glick is talking about. Our Judges care more for their power than for sanity in defense of our citizens.
