When thinking how to punish terrorists, the murder of Edward II springs to mind.

Edward II (the foolish), an English king of the early 14th century, was murdered by his political enemies. Not wanting any visible signs of foul play, his murderers devised an ingenious way to go about it. They put a tube up his rectum, and they then inserted a red hot poker into the tube and into his bowels until he died. It was said his screams were heard for miles. He was also gay, so it was thought the manner of his death showed great wit.

I think this would be the perfect way to end the lives of captured terrorists. You see, if you execute them, they will be regarded as martyrs by fellow Muslims. Indeed, many terrorist choose to be terrorists so that they can be martyrs and go to paradise. However, if they knew that martyrdom could take this form, they might think otherwise. Quite frankly, having a tube stuck up your a$$ and then having a red hot poker inserted into that tube is not a glamorous way to go.

Think of a hypothetical terrorist, Mohammed. (sic)
He is a rather confused young man, who is enraged by western treatment of the Islamic world. Also, there is not much he can hope to be in life otherwise, so he wants to be a hero for the struggle and be remembered as a martyr. So it's fine if he goes fighting the Americans in Iraq or the Europeans in Europe, and gets captured, and executed. But what if his execution looks like the one I just described? Would he want to be rembered as having been a$$ raped to death? It is something worth thinking about. After all if it is good enough for a king of England, it is surely good enough for a fanatical turbanhead.

Bury them in pig fat.

What your saying though is actually quite sick, i dont mean how Edward II died just what your saying on a whole. Youll be pointiing out various torture methods to use on terrorists next.

Yes, slow asphyxiation in a foul, forbidden substance.

No, I am quite serious. Old paradigms no longer apply. The terrorists are not afraid of death, in fact they think it an honor. They are killing our people, and that demands punishment. If they are imprisoned, that is not punishment enough. If they are killed, they regard it as martyrdom, and perhaps they even enjoy thinking about death and the "virgins of paradise." Justice has to be served. They are *terrorists*, they think nothing of killing or death. Let them have a taste of what they serve to others. Don't start a fire if you can't take the heat.

If they are killed, they should buried in pig fat. This prevents them becoming a martyr or going to heaven or some ****. The Russians have recently started doing it(or threatening to do it) to Chechen terrorists.

This way, they cant see suicide bombing as a way to paradise and the seventy seven virgins blahblahblah.

The people that oppose this method on human rights grounds should simply be buried alive(just kidding!)

I don't know if that would work. These people tend to twist things to fit their world view, I'm sure they'd find an excuse somwhere in the Koran that says its okay if you touch pigs if you do it for Allah and so on. On the other hand, you can't argue with heated pokers in your rectum.


BTW, can you hear the song?

They say that a liberal society cannot survive when faced with those who do not share its values. Besides, like I said, if it was done to a king of England...\
When you kill others you agree to any reprecussions that might follow. It is as simple as that.

What are you talking about? The Dark ages were the best. You could live, unlike today, where you merely exist.

LOl, youre joking right?


@ Notan

The Dark ages ended about 200 years before Edwrad II was born. It depends what you mean by 'live' aswell, the poor were still poor back then you know, life was F-king hard and the majority of european populations would have existed rather than really lived.

Notan:
if you believe it is with this kind of thinking you're going to fight eficiently against terrorism, that means you didn't understand anything.
Fight against wahabi terror is also a ideological war.
To win this war we must be proud of what is good on our society: progress and human rights.
I couldn't be proud of my country if it treats its prisoners that way.

"To win this war we must be proud of what is good on our society: progress and human rights."

Unfortunately most Europeans feel the way you do. It sometimes seems to me that Europeans take pride in their defenslesness. As I said before, a liberal society cannot survive if faced with those who do not share its values. My only hope for my country and Europe as a whole is that the course of events will eventually show people the reality.

One more thing: this is obviously a war, this war against terrorism. Even the most liberal society becomes illiberal in a struggle to survive. Not an existentialist struggle, this war on terrorism, you say? Ironicaly, that's true for Americans. As for Europeans, take a look at your local school if you live in a city. Shrug

I'm far from certain you know how I feel and I certainly don't feel like most of the Europeans LOL.
Well on the fight against terror perhaps. I think we are not so bad in Europe on that matter.
But no, don't panic. There is really no need for torture.
