Vic Toews says public safety trumps the speedy return of convicted terrorist and murderer Omar Khadr to Canada.
Canoe news is new to the news, relatively speaking, so may they are acting like a young child. Oh yes I remember my daughter as a little princess, asking daddy for something. When I said yes she only asked once. When I said no, she would ask over and over again hopping I would change my mind or trying to wear me down.
If anything asking the same question over and over again irritates me. As this question is doing.
From the Mods: It's a popular debate topic and we get a lot of people viewing the old responses. That's why it gets recycled. But we take your point. We'll let this one drop off shortly.

He didnt sign a confession. He signed a document that said in exchange for an 8 year sentence he would plead guilty.
Mrs-Brigand, 2012-08-26 18:02:38
Point being you said ..
"If he has to come home let him serve out his full 40 year term"
He was not sentenced to 40 years so there is no 40 year sentence to be served fully
Mrs-Brigand, 2012-08-26 10:20:28
Not at all.Of course he was a murderer the second he killed.DUH!
Omar though, who by the Americans own admission, must likely did not kill the occupier Speers, did not commit treason.
And come on FUOM. We know by your own admission you use different ID's. Now try and start posting something even close to the topic..PLEASE
"They don't even have to release him after those 8 years are up"
Yea. They do
Mrs-Brigand, 2012-08-26 10:18:36
They don't even have to release him after those 8 years are up due to his illegal enemy combatant status (ie foreign fighter/mercenary).

What exactly is your point M-B? That I expressed a wish that Khadr would serve the sentence the jury recommended rather than the one given to him via the plea bargain? Then yup, you've got me. I'd love to see this smug little turd's balloon popped when he returns to Canada to find that he is not going to get out of prison anytime soon.
Is it likely to happen? Of course not. Nor is it likely that my REAL wish -- that Khadr will stumble across a JTF2 training exercise in a dark alley some night -- will ever come true either. Too bad.
I suspect most people recognized my comment for what it was. Having made your reply to it, why you are intent on dragging out that Khadr is only 8 years guilty instead of 40 years guilty is not clear to me.

Actually, that one warped an old old moniker I used a few times "FedUpSenior" into FUOM (FedUpOldMan?) which either illustrates her hatred of seniors in general or, as you suspect, a euphemism for a rude and unprintable alternative to "BegonOldMan" - which, in reality, IS (as the "F" word) the last bastion of the verbally challenged.
As I predicted, she is now lumping our two names together - but every now and then the Mods will either set her straight, or simply delete her post.
But really, I could not possibly care less one way or the other. As for the Khadr situation, your analogy to Bernardo makes perfect sense - to someone capable of grasping the concept. You are, unfortunately, wasting your time with that one because history shows it simply refuses to see logic in favour of stirring up excrement.

The relevant sections of the criminal code are clear, as have been posted verbatim in previous posts, and there is evidence of "de facto" guilt. If one examines the known, and admitted, actions of Khadr they consitute treason.
I only hope that Toews is keeping the charge of treason as a welcome home surprise present for him.

I really do not understand your argument here, and invite you to read the Criminal Code of Canada as outlined previously to understand what can constitute treason. It is indeed simple.
