Death penalty for terrorists

I know it won't happen in Australia any time soon but I believe there is a strong argument for bringing back the death penalty for those convicted of terrorist offences in Australia. As there is no prospect of rehabilitation for such offenders, the safety of society can only be guaranteed by their permanent removal. Happily, most of these scum are shot dead by police but for the terrorists who survive or failed plotters who are apprehended it would surely be a favourable outcome to see them swinging at the end of a rope.

Blowin, my point is if that driver were a muslim the world would have called it a terrorist attack and Trump and Turnbull would have been all over the media condemning the attack adding its a threat to our beliefs, values and way of life. All we got was a limp statement from Trump condemning "both"sides. Why? what's the difference in the terrorism? As by way of background I have friends in London who have been caught up in both of the recent "terrorist" attacks where vehicles were used to kill "innocent" people just like in Charlottesville and they all see the double standard here.

No one was calling it an existential threat when the black sniper killed those coppers in my link either .

Maybe , like I said , it's the fact of the sheer volume of attacks , deaths and countries involved that make Islamic terrorism a true existential threat in the same manner as US military terrorism.

But do domestic hate crimes in the US rate in the same category ?

Nope.

PS Why have you got terrorist and innocent in inverted commas ?

You don't think that your friends caught up in the terrorist attacks were innocent ?

Blowin,

Its worth looking up how the US Justice Dept defines a hate crime and then flip over to the FBI's website for how they define terrorism. Different words and meanings but their is a strong convergence of the definitions.

I'm glad everyone is on the same page regarding the what Terrorism actually IS. It seems to be a governments justification to do whatever it wants without any self-reflection of its own actions whatsoever.

Google machine is equally vague.

terrorism
ˈtɛrərɪzəm/Submit
noun
the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
"the fight against terrorism"

In my view, every school shooting that's ever occurred in the USA should be classified as terrorism but the overall theme of this is to blame it on mental health.
Also, how do you split "political aim" from "religious aim" in a country where the government has bugger all separation between church and state? Maybe they just reserve the use of "terrorism" for people that use bombs rather than firearms in order to appease the gun companies? Not sure if that theory has any weight to it as its only just really occurred to me but seems to make sense so far, at least in the US of A anyway.

Will Spud Dutton be laying charges or launch an investigation into the Commonwealth bank re' terrorist money laundering?
Shouldn't he do so, to "keep Australians safe"?

Terrible news today that Khaled Sharrouf and his sons were killed by a coalition airstrike. Condolences to his loving family and IS. I also feel for Gaz, sheepshagger, andym and the other terrorism apologists on this site who must be dealing with unimaginable sorrow at this difficult time.

Nice one peen, you must be happy to get a few bites out of a comment like that.

I won't grieve for him, but before you celebrate too hard here's a picture of his kids. No doubt if there's any left alive they're better off without him but I think it's sad that they never had a chance at life.

The news confirmed that the two boys have been blown to bits along with Khaled Sharrouf. Killing kids shouldn't be celebrated just because they were hanging out with their dad, even if he had groomed them to be monsters.

Bottoms up though peen we're winnin the war on Obama Bin Hussein & Saddam Jong Assad Yeeeeeeehhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaw!!!!!!!

Mort, dude dont worry about internet cowards like weener.
He says stuff online he wouldn't dare say face to face. That's the epitome of a net coward. There are those here I disagree with quite strongly, but their words are comparable to a face to face conversation. That gains respect for what its worth.
But then there's weener and a few others.

"But then there's weener and a few others."

Doggo, I reckon 'weener' IS a few others. One more at least. Used to be a 'SurferFuk'. And still 'bloviates' under his other as we speak!

The Weeeeen offers not much in the way of commentary on 'political' threads really (apart from this glorious one), though he's always chucked out an exasperated comment now and then (see above). He does comment on a fair few of the more 'surfing' oriented ones.

His bloviating other is on here 24/7.

They do share the same mind-set of course.

Of all the western countries why does Europe seem to get so many radical islam terrorist attacks?

Is it poor counter terrorism measures or is it to do with a bigger percentage of muslims?

You would expect the USA would be the big target in the west with their involvement in the middle east, but apart from 9/11 off all the western countries it seems Europe gets more terrorist attacks.

interesting read

https://www.vice.com/en_au/article/vbgvb3/why-arent-there-more-terrorist...

http://time.com/4268579/brussels-attacks-islamist-terrorism-isis/

But i cant stop thinking maybe peoples fears are correct that basically the more apples you bring in the more chance of bad apples..

USA less than 1% are muslims

(European countries with major terrorist attacks since 9/11)

UK about 5%

France over 5%

Spain 4%

Belgium 4%

Germany 5%

Major western countries without proper attacks

Canada= 3%

Australia= 2.5%

NZ=1%

Would be interested to see the different ethnicity of make up in each country whom is muslim also, its quite clear that Islam in itself is not so much a problem but different countries and ethnicity's practise forms of Islam that are closer to radical islam than other forms.

While there may possibly be some scrap of truth in that the basic premise it ignores: the incidence of home-grown terrorism; terrorist acts perpetrated by right wing nationalists in the US; and statistically all the European countries quoted would be far safer places to live in terms of gun and other forms of violence inflicted on the innocent public. Finally, it would be my guess that citizens of the European countries quoted wouldn't be rushing on mass to immigrate to the US on any grounds.
