I agree that we have lost any moral ground and cannot claim to be holier than thou.
If we abandon the moral high ground because of the terrorists, haven't they already won to some degree?
I agree that they have made the United States come down to their level, however, once you are in a battle, shouldn't you use whatever means needed to win that battle?

No, you shouldn't use any means necessary to win a batle. That is the excuse used by cowards to sell-out principles.

If we have those bad guys then we should be treating them with some measure of humanity. Else, why not have a TV spectacle and take off their heads--the bad guys do it, why not us?

No, MrTikket was a regular BenzWorld member before the great exodus.

I think it's disgraceful we (the US) treat people differently because they are not citizens or we label then "unlawful combatants". Our Bill of Rights makes no distinction between citizens and non-citizens; rather our rights are not changeable (remember 'inalienable') as they are granted by GOD. We have the capability of upholding these rights for all people - if we do that, we can lead by example, and gain global support in our efforts.

Where is there no advantage to citizenship? If you are a citizen here, you should have your rights respected. If you are under another government, your rights may or may not be respected, but if the US invades, you might just welcome it if you know we would respect your rights.

you get to live in the great ol' US of A... the way i read the preamble and constitution it sure seems that those rights are for everybody....then there is this "bring me your poor, tired masses...." which extends those ideals to those folks...

Once again, the US hearts n' minds campaign proves to the world that the rules don't apply as far as we're concerned, in fact we can make them up as we go. This ought to go over real well on the Arab street.
Believe me, it isn't very popular elsewhere either.

Let me take you on a SEE CRUZ!
