That's right set him free... in the middle of Hudson's Bay or anywhere at 10,000 feet less a parachute.
Seriously though. Why should Khadr's return make us so angry? That is the real question. What does it matter where this character is kept? -Guantanamo. -Club Ed. -Alert. -Hell. All of these are great places to keep Omar Khadr.
The trouble is that deep down we know that plans are being drawn as you read this to free that worthless scum. You know it. The trouble is that we don't trust our "Justice" system to keep him locked up at all.
The American government does not trust their own "Justice" system, hence the creation of Guantanamo in the first place. Guantanamo is under US control but outside of a judge's jurisdiction. Even the Obama administration has stumbled upon some vital truth about Guantanamo terrorists to make them go back on their pre-election promises to close the place. I don't really blame them for tossing this hot potato at us.
What the left is planning to do is to make Omar Khadr into the next Maher Arar. The big difference being that while Arar was innocent, Khadr is an actual Al Qeada terrorist with blood on his hands.
Right and wrong don't matter in politics or law, at least with the enemy. They won't hesitate to turn this evil-doer into the victim. Romeo Dallaire is pioneering this approach calling Khadr a "child soldier."
I'm sorry but Dallaire has a screw loose. Thank you for your service and all of that, but service has become a bit of a participation trophy in our society. I greatly admire many of the brave men and women who serve but any one of them can tell you that not every one who ever wore a uniform deserved to. I'm sure you can think of at least one person who didn't deserve the privilege.
The Liberal government that made Romeo Dallaire sit there and watch a genocide has created an individual so riddled with guilt he sees the cause of Omar Khadr as some kind of personal redemption. What kind of mental scars could be so deep as to advocate the freedom of an enemy traitor let loose in your own country? Dallaire is the victim and he doesn't even know it. This is along side the very same bastard politicians who did it to him. I simply can't imagine that kind of pain. I don't want to imagine it, but there it is.
One of those bastards is our old friend Bob Rae. Rae once called the staffers of the PMO terrorists. Law abiding, tax paying, loyal sons of Canada are terrorists to Bob Rae, but an actual terrorist like Omar Khadr is just a victim.
Khadr is a grenade throwing, bomb making killer victim. This is the line they will use to set him loose, but it gets worse. The same line will be used to give him a great big tax payer cheque. Betraying your country, killing our allies, possibly killing our own troops with road side bombs, can win you the lottery in this country.
Good people can toil away their whole lives and not win as big as the left wants Khadr to win. It makes me want to find Galt's Gulch. I love myself too much to try and impose justice on this scum bag but I can't pay taxes to Omar Khadr. I can't.
I just came home from Texas yesterday. Believe it or not the subject of Omar Khadr happened to come up during my trip. They had never heard of him but they spied something on my desktop that prompted them to ask "who's Omar Khadr?" When I finished telling them, they completely agreed with me. Every breath Khadr takes is stolen from the good people of the earth.
It makes me wonder at how easily the left dismisses Khadr's own victims and their families. Do they not matter because they are Americans maybe? You have to wonder. Perhaps the left thinks Americans had it coming? Don't be afraid to ask these questions. Goodness knows the enemy bigots will be calling us racists in short order.
I do realize that whatever happens the Khadr case is a political fork for the Conservatives. Politically we win, even if we lose. There is too much emotion bound up in this story. It's like the Long Gun Registry to the power of ten. It's sure to energize the base for decades and fuel the angst against a system of law that has totally lost sight of right and wrong.
It all keeps reminding me of a quote I saw on a t-shirt down in the Lone Star State.
"you may all go to hell and I will go to Texas" - Davy Crockett
It's too damn hot in Texas! Liberals and assorted leftards will not drive me out of the home I love. Should I just go back to sleep, forget politics and stay away from large crowds? No way. Canada and the good people in it are worth fighting for.
