At age 52 he probably won’t ever see freedom again, but he gets to keep his life, something he didn’t mind to helping to steal from 160 innocent people, including 7 kids between the ages of 4-15. Let him rot. *spit*

re: #1 CuriousLurker

What is not is not said is that the way the world sees the USA as the underlying cause of these terrorist attacks that are backed by Pakistan and Saudi Arabians.

India and the USA have been hostile for decades since India was seen as being in the Soviet sphere so the USA looked the other way as the Pakistanis (America’s client state) would fund and train these terrorists, many a times with links to Saudi Arabia.

American’s really don’t get this aspect of their history and why the roots of 9/11 run through decades of American foreign policy’s links to Pakistani and Saudi intelligence (and in some cases the USA was sympathetic to Islamist causes like in Chechnya).

All you need to do is read Indian news and opinion where this sort of world view is mentioned over and over about the USA. Even today, the USA won’t back the Indian claim to Kashmir because of Pakistan.

re: #2 Destro

Not all Americans are as clueless as you seem to think, Destro. I get the anger & resentment a lot of people around the world feel towards the U.S.—not all of it is unjustified. What is unjustifiable is killing innocent people.

If you have a beef with me over something I did to you and you come bomb my house, killing one of my children, does that justify me hunting down and murdering one of YOUR children? No, it does NOT. My rage & desire for revenge might be understandable, but the killing of innocents is unacceptable. There is no justice or honor or redemption in that.

re: #3 CuriousLurker

I am not commenting on “morality” just motivations and insights of how people on the other end of US State Dept’s policies feel.

Back Story of Yasiel Puig’s Journey to America Should Concern Dodgers

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

These 5 Countries Are Crushing the Whole Gender Equality Thing at Home
When looking at this data, it's important to remember that gender equality isn't just about women working more paid hours or doing less housework. It's also about men cutting back their work hours to pitch in more around the house. Countries that have lighter workweeks, in fact, tend to have a more equal distribution between men and women in the home. The OECD ...

When Evangelicals Were Pro-Choice - GOPlifer
Jamelle Bouie had a great piece at Slate last week explaining the long strange journey of Protestant Evangelicals from pressing for the expansion of abortion rights to vehement opposition to nearly every aspect of women's reproductive choices. Bouie correctly identifies the trend, but he misses an important pivot point that calls the rest of his analysis into question. Bouie correctly points out that ...

Justin Trudeau has talked him­self into a defama­tion law­suit that is likely to leave his party quite a bit lighter in the wal­let.

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...
