No, it’s Al Queda that is suffering revenge attacks by the USA. As for Al-Awlaki - he’s a 14th. Amendment citizen who had no allegiance to the US. He went overseas to attack and kill Americans. He’s (was) a combatant, not a private citizen of a country he disavowed.

Yeah, right.

So the people who hate us and are trying to kill us are going to have more reason to hate us and want to kill us.

Like they’re not trying their damndest already.

At least this way they have reason to fear us. I’ve read some expert opinions that killing off their experienced, talented senior leadership does have an effect. The replacements may be motivated and enthusiastic but they don’t have the moxie.

Meanwhile, that many more talented guys have reason to rethink their career choices and maybe decide to take up nonviolent pursuits.

Actually this is my only problem with this. These guys are like shark’s teeth and we need to kill the shark. Otherwise, 40 years from now, we’ll be seeing news of another dead muzzy in an endless line of dead muzzies.

Total war. Leave them devastated and starving and they’ll be too busy struggling to survive, to look for revenge. In fact they need to be afraid to seek revenge.

Actually I’m a bit surprised. I figured Al-Awlaki would be a strong candidate to replace Biden on the 012 ticket.

Is it possible that the government and those who profit from this 10 year WOT BS work overtime to try to keep the sheeple afraid. If we forget and get lax will they come up with a new reason or “Patriot Act v3.0” as a reason to strip away more of our rights?

Live Free or Die (NH State motto)....We’re turning into a police state, and in lieu of that I will take my chances with the so called terrorists.

He declared war on the USA by his actions and deeds. That made him a combatant though not necessarily of any country. If you were to go overseas and start attacking American troops what do you think would happen to you? You think the FBI will come for you? And again, he was a 14th. Amendment citizen with no allegiance to the US whatsoever.

He declared war on the USA

But Congress did not declare war. So unless there is a clear and present danger, an imminent threat he was assassinated.

Another one was just arrested this week. So you think we should ignore terrorists?

If only you had let Awlaki alone, the Islamfascists would just have been satisfied with Jihaad attacks against the Great Satan. But now that you gone and bagged you a cleric, there’ll be revenge Jihaad attacks against the Great Satan. Nice going. Now you’ve put your foot in it. What WERE you thinking?/sarc

No we shouldn’t ignore them but we shouldn’t lose what is most important, and that is our freedom and liberty, and we should never permit our nation to become a police state where every citizen is constantly under a net and scanned, monitored, data profiled, and treated as a potential suspect. Otherwise we’ve lost and both the terrorists and those wanting to hijack our freedom have won.

Actually, I don't think he was living in a cave. Even bin laden was not living in a cave, or even a man cave. Most of those guys are not living in caves or riding on donkeys. They have reasonably decent accommodations and transportation.

These radicals are uncivilized savages and they are determined to either convert us or kill us. They have stated their goal is to have the flag of Islam flying over the WH. That may not be a far-fetched dream considering who is occupying it but I fear Ron Paul will be worse. At least Obama approved the killing of bin Laden and Al Zawahairi. Paul wants to protect them.

he’s a 14th. Amendment citizen

I've seen this phrase more than once today. Kinda makes my skin crawl.

You start poopooing amendments and next thing I'll be hearing is the left saying that I have a "2nd Amendment gun". If one amendment is less than, all are in danger.

Now, if we can get rid of "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside." tomorrow, I'd be pleased.

Even though the man was evil, can you imagine how Hitler would have handled the situation? You kill one of his, he kills the entire town you came from. And ruthless as it is,it doesn’t have to be done often to get respect. It’s the only thing muzzies understand, anyway.

Oh no!

Our so called leaders had THEIR leaders killed. Oh no... will they now go after our leaders? Oh no. Golly, this could be horrible, really, really horrible for sure......oh no.

If they try it, our leaders will send in Obama’s Special Rainbow Team, wearing butt-less leather pants and packing purses... that’ll teach ‘em.

I don’t worry about the terrorists, it’s our own government that’s killing our country, stealing our children’s futures and our way of life.

No, they never loved the United States. What it means is the usual list of suspects — Homeland Security, ICE, FBI, TSA, etc. are working overtime to facilitate a Muslim attack but in a way not to be blamed for it. Standby.

Nothing wrong with that phraze in the 14th, it just needs to be read correctly:
"...and subject to the jurisdiction thereof..."
Those born in the US to parents that are citizens of another country, are subject to the jurisdiction of that country, not the US.

Thus, illegal alien criminal invading colonists from Mexico that have a child in the US are subject to the jurisdiction of Mexico, therefor their child is also. And a citizen of Mexico, not the US.

Same for all the mid eastern women flying into Dearborn, MI to have "citizen" babies.

The are not citizens, just future terrorists similar to the one killed the other day.

Obama is making a big show of fighting terrorism, while with the other hand he is welcoming terrorists to this country, either by birth or by freeing mid eastern terrorists that come across the southern border.

The guy they killed was interviewed by the FBI 4 times, and let go.

Even though he was requiting terrorists in Mosques and speeches all over also.

And just the other day 2 terrorists crossed over the border, were caught and charged with a crime, and bailed out so they can kill us.

Thanks, but no thanks Obama and crew.
