Give Terrorists Their Wish, Death

Terrorists are folks who have no respect for human life, even their own.“Jordan has threatened to fast-track the execution of a would-be suicide bomber the Islamic State is trying to free if the terror group kills its captured pilot, it was reported today.
The government has apparently warned that Sajida al-Rishawi and other jailed ISIS commanders would be ‘quickly judged and sentenced’ in revenge for Muath al-Kaseasbeh’s death.”
Their trend to capture and kill hostages is just the tip of the iceberg of their depravity. Instead of threatening to kill terrorist prisoners, the world needs to unite and kill or capture all the terrorists in Syria/Iraq. To do less allows these crimes against humanity to continue.

Japan, Jordan, Canada, everyone who respects humanity should form a coalition to retake territory claimed by terrorists like these scumbags in Syria and Iraq. Flood the region with millions of well-armed and well-trained troops with close air support and theatre-wide command and control and the scum could be rooted out in a few months. There would be great cost and casualties but an important message would be sent that terrorism will not be tolerated. If that message is insufficient to rid the world of terrorists, at least their numbers would be cut down.

See Jordan 'says it will hang its ISIS captives' if airman hostage is dead.

    That was proven recently when they attempted to negotiate the release of a bomber in exchange for a dead pilot. The Kurds, OTOH, seek a non-theocratic state and are amenable to concepts like democracy, something rare in the Middle East. Compared to the government in Iraq, the Kurds are a breath of fresh air. We should open embassies in the Kurdish territory… It is a huge mistake for USA to support the regime in Iraq but starve the Kurds. Up to now, the USA has been letting the government of Iraq filter weapons to the Kurds while the Kurds are the only ones willing to fight the scum. It’s frustrating that Assad and the scum are tolerated while the world knows massive crimes against humanity are committed. Diplomacy should not get in the way of justice.

    kurkosdr the USA have to the the point now of arm the Kurds and deal with the political fall out latter. Kurds at least believe everyone where possible has a right to life as long as they are not attacking others. There is a chance of coming to an acceptable agreement with the Kurds. There is absolutely no chance of an acceptable agreement with ISIS.

    The Kurds are a long term trouble maker in the area who has never shown any intentional attacks on general non combatants. Trouble but trust-able trouble.

    “and operating in the open to build a military-industrial war-machine.”

    And how is this any different from the military-industrial war-machine the Somali Jihadists have built, which is something you don’t mention in the article?

    ISIS is a fanatical militia, not the fanatical militia of the world.

    “Once whittled down to size, ordinary governments, even local police can contain them.”

    You are aware that humans can travel, right? Even if the Iraqi Jihadists were whittled down to size, Jihadists from nearby regions would come in, after the forces would have left.

    “The government of all of Iraq has to allow Kurds, Sunni, Shia and others to have a voice in government and a democracy is in order.”

    Here is your problem. You assume everyone likes democracy and respects the will of the majority. Here is a newsflash, Sunni Jihadists don’t want democracy. They want things done their way, no matter what, and there are many of them in the region, constantly looking for weakened countries to make a mess in (Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, Libya).

    “Start by shutting down Assad’s airforce and pounding him into the Stone Age if he won’t agree to a proper democracy of all the people. ”

    So, weaken another country in the region (see above), and then build a democratic country out of the ruins that will not have the neccessary arms to defend itself against Jihadists. What could possibly go wrong? (again, see above)

    —–

    The only solution to somewhat contain the Jihadists would be to arm the Kurds, as they have proven their willingness to fight and are a pernament force, but the USA can’t do that because it would disrupt their relationships with Turkey (the Turkish Kurds want autonomy for the parts of Turkey where they have a majority population). So, it ain’t gonna happen.

    In fact, the Western Countries won’t even arm the Shi’ite government they set up in Iraq, because arms are expensive and they don’t care anymore. Got it? Oil prices are low, so they don’t care. Unlike what the mainstream media in Canada and the US say, the militaries of Canadia and the US are not a Justice League, they only interfere when there is some economical gain to be had for the governments of Canada and the US. They have no obligation to fix other countries, even if they caused the mess in the first place. That’s how things work. Wars are expensive. Arms are expensive. Deal with it.

    PS: Also, on a completely unrelated note, code developed in time is expensive. So, the slogan of this blog should be: “People should do expensive things for free”

    You are correct that we can’t kill them all but we can prevent terrorists from holding territory and operating in the open to build a military-industrial war-machine. We can destroy all their infrastructure of that kind. Once whittled down to size, ordinary governments, even local police can contain them.

    kurkosdr also wrote, “what would happen next, when the forces have to leave?”

    Of course, we don’t want another Iraq. This year has been a concrete example to any government not to let things get this far out of control. The government of all of Iraq has to allow Kurds, Sunni, Shia and others to have a voice in government and a democracy is in order. If the government of Iraq won’t get their act together and govern the whole country they should be replaced with one that will. I would recommend a constitutional convention where all sides could speak their piece and for a government that works for everyone. The US had given them everything they needed to do the job in place of Sadaam and they blew it. The same thing has to be done in Syria. Start by shutting down Assad’s airforce and pounding him into the Stone Age if he won’t agree to a proper democracy of all the people. Too many have been killed for everyone to get along for a generation or two but at least the people of good will can be allowed to run the show instead of tyrants on any side.

    “and the scum could be rooted out in a few months. ”

    There are Jihadists in Somalia and Yemen too. But nobody cares about that problem because the respective regions don’t have significant oil reserves. Even if forces were sent to Iraq and the unwinnable guerilla war that would follow was won, it still wouldn’t “root out” Jihadists from the face of the earth.

    Truth is, if your country doesn’t dick around other countries, then Jihadists don’t care about hurting the population of your country. There is a reason Jihadists don’t do terrorist attacks in -say- China or Brazil. The so-called Western countries try to present organized Jihadists as a word problem, but it’s not. In fact, “lone wolfs”, which cannot be defeated by military means, are a bigger problems for countries that don’t dick around other countries than organized Jihadists.

    Oh, and Robert, if the government-run Justice League team you propose was formed, and the war was won, what would happen next, when the forces have to leave? Trust the legal government of Iraq to fend off the Jihadists that would come to reoccupy the land? Uh oh… that has already been tried. Have the soldiers form pernament camps in Iraq, at the taxpayers dime?

    In reality, ever since Sadam was kicked out, Iraq became an unfixable mess of Somalia proportions, and the blame lies on the countries that organized the toppling of Sadam.

    And anyway, the Justice League is now resting from the justice it brought in Lybia (another country that became a mess of Somalia proportions).

    So, dear Robert, if you want the mess to not become any bigger, stop advocating for the Justice League to go and fix things.
