Symbolic Court Whats It Really Mean?

Symbolic Court


What is a Symbolic court? I know that the flag of the United States is Symbolic. But a court? Is that like a Kangaroo Court? Who knows? You can’t even find the word in the dictionary. I am not cutting down this court. But is it some sort of international court? What right do they have to have a trial without the people that they are trying present. How about Mr. Obama ordering soldiers across international borders to Murder Osama bin Laden. Before I go further I would like to make something clear. I believe that it was right and just to kill Bin Laden. It probably gave some people peace to know he is dead. So when are they going to have their Symbolic Court for Obama? Or do we forget that some of the information that was obtained to find Bin Laden was from the Forbidden Fruit of Interrogation. In a place that Obama himself in last election say he was going to close down. Isn’t that part of the charge that President Bush and his cabinet have been condemned for? Or is the information that has been gotten from there still being used? They are still holding people there and I suppose they are not sitting around eating crumpets and drinking tea. I think it should have been with a jury of his peers. Where there are witnesses called for the defense, where there is a defense team in place. If this was some sort of International court then maybe what is found there would mean something.

I feel as bad as anybody that civilian casualties have happened. If terrorist would fight like men and not hide behind women and children. But the terrorist are to blame as much as our troops. If you are going to shoot at people then don’t run into an occupied house and then complain that we are shooting at women and children. How can they blame Bush and Cheney for that? The terrorists think nothing of putting a bomb in a market place and blowing up whomever happens to be there weather it is troops or women and children or any of their own people.

So its election time and now we are going to make a big deal out of pulling troops out. So Obama can win votes. I have not heard anything about closing Guantanamo Bay down. Four years is a long time to see that happen. That was one of his main Promises.

Hmm.., Obama was a not a woman, no Republican was going to be elected from that crop AND he was black...see "Symbolic...", I think he's batting 1.000 on "promises," there Bill. Had not The Navy killed Bin Laden, Mr. President would not be where he is. Forunately, Bill, he has no skill, so he will ALWAYS follow the Democrat Party Line. That's good,too. Nice piece, my friend.
