Kill, don't capture

Yesterday, Lawhawk linked to an article in the New York Post, which, although intended as advise for the US's part of the war on terror, would be good advise for Israel as well. The article is called "Kill, don't capture."
THE British military defines experience as the ability to recognize a mistake the second time you make it. By that standard, we should be very experienced in dealing with captured terrorists, since we've made the same mistake again and again.

Violent Islamist extremists must be killed on the battlefield. Only in the rarest cases should they be taken prisoner. Few have serious intelligence value. And, once captured, there's no way to dispose of them.

Killing terrorists during a conflict isn't barbaric or immoral - or even illegal. We've imposed rules upon ourselves that have no historical or judicial precedent. We haven't been stymied by others, but by ourselves.

The oft-cited, seldom-read Geneva and Hague Conventions define legal combatants as those who visibly identify themselves by wearing uniforms or distinguishing insignia (the latter provision covers honorable partisans - but no badges or armbands, no protection). Those who wear civilian clothes to ambush soldiers or collect intelligence are assassins and spies - beyond the pale of law.

Read the whole thing.

right on...

If you kill a terrorist they they cannot BREED.

if you kill a terrorist then it doesnt cost anything more

if you kill a terrorist and NOT RETURN their bodies, they cannot go to heaven

when you kill a terrorist, wrap his dead ass in a pig skin....

since these terrorists/freedom fighters/militants already murder, dismember, behead and otherwise desecrate JEWISH dead they can get their hands on, why not play TURNAROUND, see how they like it.
