ADOPT A TERRORIST
A Canadian female libertarian wrote a lot of letters to the Canadian government, complaining about the treatment of captive insurgents (terrorists) being held in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities. She demanded a response to her letter correspondence.
She received back the following reply:
National Defence Headquarters
M Gen George R. Pearkes Bldg.,15 NT
101 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa, ON K1A 0K2 Canada
Dear Concerned Citizen,
Thank you for your recent letter expressing your profound concern of treatment of the Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorists captured by Canadian Forces who were subsequently transferred to the Afghanistan Government and are currently being held by Afghan officials in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities.
Our administration takes these matters seriously and your opinions were heard loud and clear here in Ottawa . You will be pleased to learn, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new department here at the Department of National Defence, to be called ‘Libertarians Accept Responsibility for Killers’ program, or L.A.R.K. for short.
In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we have decided to divert one terrorist and place him in your personal care. Your personal detainee has been selected and is scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence in Toronto next Monday.
Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud (you can just call him Ahmed) is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint!
It will likely be necessary for you to hire some assistant caretakers. We will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with those you so strongly recommended in your letter. Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his ‘attitudinal problem’ will help him overcome these character flaws.
Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counselling and home schooling. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills at your next yoga group. Please advise any Jewish friends, neighbours or relatives about your house guest,as he might get agitated or even violent, but we are sure you can reason with him. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up,unless (in your opinion) this might offend him.
Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters (except sexually) since he views females as a subhuman form of property thereby having no rights,including refusal of his sexual demands. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him and he has been known to show violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the new dress code that he will “recommend” as more appropriate attire.
I’m sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka over time. Just remember that it is all part of ‘respecting his culture and religious beliefs’ as described in your letter.
Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. You take good care of Ahmed and remember we’ll be watching.
Good luck and God bless you,
Minister of National Defence
Surfacing of a video showing US Marines urinating on Taliban corpses http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/12/marines-urinating-taliban-video_n_1202139.html
has US Government and its various officers, politicians, etc., rushing to the media to denounce and disown the dastardly deed. At the same time when you surf the web you read comments from both sides of the spectrum.
While on the surface of it, the act is devoid of human decency and the condemnations seem genuine, reality is very different. If you had to make a choice between the Marines urinating on the enemy corpses and US Soldiers’s treatment of “living” Iraqi prisoners at Abu Gharib, what would you choose?
Again if you had to make a choice between the Marines urinating on the enemy corpses and US throwing Napalm bombs on Vietnam and Cambodia, what would you choose?
Or, if you had to make a choice between the Marines urinating on the enemy corpses and US decimating half a million Japanese in Hiroshima and Nagasaki what would you choose?
And the list goes on and on. So simple truth is that the response of the US Government, politicians and the public as selective and hypocritical.
While as a civilized society we may feel uneasy or outraged by this video, fact is that those who fight the war for us are facing and witnessing death and cruelty every day. They are killing and getting killed. It is foolhardy and delusional to expect totally civil behavior in such an environment.
While urinating on the corpses is bad, let us not forget that these followers of Islam have no compunction in slitting throats of captives, be they men or women (air hostesses of 9/11 flights), or blowing off planes and bombing crowded markets. And how about Bangladeshi soldiers gouging out the eyes of Bharat (India)’s soldiers and mutilating their bodies? How about Pakistan’s soldiers beheading Bharatiya soldiers and sending back their headless torso?
While US Marines’ behavior is an exception, that of Muslim soldiers and terrorists is not; they are uniformly cruel and barbaric. History of Islam bears testimony to that.
One can argue that yes, true but we do not have to be like them. The fact is, on a scale of 1 to 10000, US Marines’ act, as much as it jars our senses, is mere 1 and that of barbaric Islamists 10,000.

There, you have it!
