All-around multicolor suicidal idiocy
Mohammed Taheri-Azar, who attempted a suicide car attack at Univ of North Carolina in 2006, was sentenced to 33 years in civil court.
Just to raise my blood pressure, not that it matters, let's imagine a Jap pilot who attempts a kamikaze dive-bombing on Seattle in 1943. He runs out of gas, lands in the Olympic Peninsula, survives the landing. What would happen after that? First of all, the Ground Observer Corps
would track his flight, and would determine quickly that he was a Jap. Then a small military contingent would find the plane, using the coordinates determined by GOC. Then he'd either be shot on sight or taken to a POW camp for intensive interrogation.
In 2008 we give an enemy soldier a nice gentle trial and a nice gentle sentence in a nice cushy Fed prison, where he will be free to proselytize black prisoners, recruit them into Allah's Army.

We deserve to lose this war. Ordinary Americans don't deserve it, but our alleged so-called "government" deserves to lose it, and deserves to be seen accurately as a corrupt moronic Quisling, to serve as a lesson to future democracies. If there are any.

The big point here:
War is not a jury trial.
In war you do not presume innocence.
In war you do not distinguish between attempt and success.
In war, nearly all bullets and bombs are failures. That's how it goes.
Mohammed Taheri-Azar is an enemy soldier.
He was deadly serious about his kamikaze attack.
He intended to kill as many infidels as he could.
His estimate of necessary projectile velocity was wrong, but that is utterly and totally irrelevant in war. He pulled the trigger, and that's the only thing that matters.
