So you have a plan to attack and conduct a terrorism act against America. With full intent to kill and destroy as many people as you can. You help plan and conduct the plan against an organization with mischievous intent backed with evil. You committed your crimes in an especially heinous, cruel or depraved manner; and you committed your crimes knowing others besides the intended victims might die; and that you used substantial planning or premeditation. You conduct these acts and become convicted of several terrorism-related counts, including conspiring with Al Qaeda to commit acts of terrorism and conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction. Your mission is carried out and successful. You however have been thumbed and found guilty of being a participant or just dumb enough to get caught. Now, tried, because of special technicalities, you receive a lesser penalty. The appropriate charge would be death. You receive life in prison. A charge that is also shared with robbers and drug offenders. You will cost the American tax payers aprx $33,000 a year from now until your sorry excuse for a life is extinguished. As you leave the court room you claim you are triumphant and a winnerâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦ "America, you lost. I won," Moussaoui said, clapping his hands as he was led out of the courtroom after the verdict was read. Beginning back in Oct of 2001, America rounded up numerous possible suspects involved with the attacks of 9-11. One was Zacarias Moussaoui A burly, French-born Moroccan with a shaved head and a history of Muslim radicalism, Moussaoui, 33, entered the United States last February and immediately began trying to learn to fly. He washed out of flight school in Norman, Okla., and moved on to the Pan Am International Flying Academy in Eagan, Minn., where he paid $8,000 to use flight simulators designed to train commercial pilots. His instructors became suspicious, and the school called the FBI, which detained Moussaoui on Aug. 17 on immigration charges. Held as a material witness after Sept. 11, he has been in jail ever since. His phase is over and he will feel as a winner. Is he? Families expressed how he is a wanna be terrorist, not the real martyr, terrorists he portrays. He believes he is among the ranks of Osama and other scumbags but actually he isnâ€™t even on the same team. He is fortunate he isnâ€™t being tried in a different era. In a different time when criminals that commit such treason or terrorists acts against specific countrys, they are dismembered and hung throughout the streets. In other countryâ€™s as the one he represents, they hold beheadings as a normal ritual. Boy would the left wingers have a shit fit with that, but I bet it would make other wanna be scumbags think twice. Martyrism is only accurate if they are killed when doing a â€œgod like â€œaction as Allah sees it. Being sliced and diced for being found guilty in a court of law for terrorists acts doesnâ€™t fall under those parameters. (Court documents cane be found here) (Last transmission from flight 93 here) I think its a bunch of BS that we wasted the tax payers money on this wasted bag of bones. Would the same result have happened if it were joe public? Nope. He would have gotten the death penaltyâ€¦..or dismembered. Going to reevaluate penalties for persons committing terroristâ€™s acts against America. Iâ€™ll take along a cigar. Semper Fidelis Capt B The President of the United States takes pleasure in presenting the Bronze Star Medal to Lance Corporal Anderson, Untied States Marine Corps for service as set forth in the following citation: For heroic achievement in connection with combat operations against the enemy as a Fire Team Leader, 1st Platoon, Kilo Company, 3d Battalion, 6th Marines, 2d Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward) in support of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM 04-06 on 19 October 2005. On this day, Lance Corporal Anderson was serving as point man for a patrol in support of urban clearing operations. As the patrol approached its designated blocking position, a vehicle pulled out of an alley to the front and approached towards the patrol. As Lance Corporal Anderson stood his ground and fired into the windshield, causing the car to swerve away from the patrol and detonate prematurely. Shrapnel from the resulting explosion mortally wounded Lance Corporal Anderson and severely injured five others. Lance Corporal Andersonâ€™s immediate actions and willingness to sacrifice himself directly contributed to saving many lives and enabled his unit to continue its mission. By his zealous initiative, courageous actions, and exceptional dedication to duty, Lance Corporal Anderson reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Because of his decision and actions to act quickly and kill the driver of the Suicide Vehicle Born Improvised Explosive Device he without a doubt saved numerous lives with in his platoon and innocent bystanders. Itâ€™s a shame this type of event is never mentioned in the news, news papers, magazines etc. Why couldnâ€™t any media program offer a segment of heroâ€™s and print these brave Marines storys???? Because the chose not to. Lance Cpl. Dux A. Lopez, an Administrative Clerk for Headquarters and Service Company, 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, watches closely at traffic for possible threats to the base. The battalion reppelled a large complex attack by insurgents on April 17 in Ramadi, the capital of Al Anbar province. The entire complex attack lasted approximately five hours and was the second largest attack on the battalion since April 8. No serious U.S. casualties were reported from the attack. Photo by Cpl. Joseph DiGirolamoAR RAMADI, Iraq - Cpl. Erick L. Calkins was leading his fire team during a stormy day in Ramadi when he heard the blast."It was a huge explosion ... I knew it hit close by," said Calkins, from 1st Platoon, Company I, 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment.A dump truck full of explosives had rammed into one of the battalion"s observation posts in another part of the Anbar provincial capitol, touching off a complex attack the Marines described as something straight out of the movies."It was rainy, stormy and windy, and they still attacked us with everything they had," said Lance Cpl. Richard R. Ricketts, a mortarman with the interior guard force of the battalion"s Headquarters and Service Company.Just moments after the initial blast, multiple mortar rounds rained down on the Ramadi Government Center, and insurgents poured on heavy small-arms fire from several nearby buildings, including a mosque.Meanwhile, at several other sights throughout the city, insurgents attacked Marines" positions with car bombs, rocket-propelled grenades, heavy machineguns, mortars, and small arms fire.There was only one course of action for the Marines of 3/8 -- they responded."The Marines didn"t hesitate," said Corp. Michael F. Anziano, an infantryman attached to 3/8"s intelligence section at the Government Center. Anziano, a 28-year-old from Strafford, Conn., helped re-supply Marines with ammunition during the fight, and later took up position on the rooftop to return fire against the insurgents."Everyone on post used accurate fire and the right weapon system for the right situation," he said.As the fighting progressed, the Marines observed insurgents setting up a mortar position several hundred yards from the Government Center. They immediately concentrated fire on the enemy position, killing three insurgents before they could employ the mortars."We disrupted their coordinated attack," Anziano said. "We returned fire, preventing them from using accurate indirect fire and from maneuvering against us."Meanwhile, the interior guard force at Hurricane Point also had their hands full, as insurgents attacked their posts with small arms fire from nearby houses while mortar rounds impacted inside the base."We took up positions all over camp to fight the enemy," said Ricketts, a 21-year-old from Orlando, Fla. The fight at Hurricane Point lasted approximately 45 minutes, according to 1st Lt. John A. Dalby, company executive officer for Headquarters and Service Company."Our guys played a small role, but it was a vital role and they did a superb job," said Dalby, a 25-year-old from Arnold, Md.When all was said and done, the Marines had successfully repelled the complex attack, sustaining only minor injuries and destroying four insurgent car bombs before they could be used against their intended targets."It felt like the battle went on for hours," Anziano said. "It was pretty hectic, but everything was well organized and the communication among the Marines was great."It was a hard-learned lesson for the insurgents that rainy April day in Ramadi: even their best laid plans won"t survive contact with the Marines of 3/8.
