So revenge. If you meant revenge, why didn't you just say so in the first place instead of denying it? You people and your doubletalk make me ashamed for America.
Ashamed for America? Wow, that's way overboard. Is it that radical to say that Moussaoui deserves to die? Here's how I see it...we as a society have determined that when you are proved to have done certain things, you forfeit certain rights. It can be liberty or life. Certainly in the case of suicide attackers like Moussaoui it isn't a deterrant. I think the death penalty can be a deterrant in a lot of cases. But I also don't think it's relevant whether or not the death penalty is a deterrant because actions like Moussaoui's demand a reaction of his execution from society. That's what retribution is if you look it up. I see revenge as more punitive.
Also, it's outrageous to compare our execution of the "helpless" Moussaoui to what he and his buddies did on 9/11. He's been proven to have done something criminal requiring punishment. But please feel free to go around saying we shouldn't execute ZM. It makes your side look even more ridiculous and out of the mainstream than usual.
