John Work’s latest post “America Still Blindfolded By PC As Jihad Rages On” made a lot of good points: Are we at war or not?

It seems to me that if we are at war, or if we are attacked by those who are at war with us, we need to treat these people as prisoners of war. As such, they should have rights only as human beings, but treated as enemies not criminals.

They should not enjoy the rights of American citizens. Rights our sons and daughters put on the line, against the likes of them, for us.

The objective in capturing enemies is to gain as much information from them as possible, to prevent further threats, and eliminate that threat. Period.

The objective in capturing criminals is punishment (or rehabilitation into society if you’re a liberal). How does that apply with enemy combatants?

It doesn’t. By combining the two, we make a mockery of our justice system, and cripple our defenses, all to please the PC gods.
