A short drop and a sudden stop.
Isn't that the penalty for treason?

1. In time of war, yes
Though there have been plenty of spies who are serving jail time despite being found guilty of treason. One fellow, I believe, was eventually extradited to Israel, but I don't know details.

2. The Kleptocracy spends lots of time telling us we are in wartime.
They may live (or not) to regret it. :evilgrin:

10. Look for a sudden about face on that claim
"No, it wasn't really a WAR sort of war - it was just a rhetoooro ... rhatiric ... rotary... a figure of speech."

5. been saying this since day one....
who ever leaked the name and outed an undercover cia is a traitor and if it is more than one person involved then its traitors.

traitors need to be hung from the neck until dead. end of story. no ifs, ands or buts.

6. Get that whole traitorous gang
to spend rest of their lives rebuilding the places they have destroyed. House by house, Street by street. Save their lives but give them good exercise.

8. England had an interesting approach to high treason until 1870
The full punishment for the crime of high treason was to be "hanged, drawn and quartered"

1.Dragged on a hurdle (a wooden frame) to the place of execution
2.Hanged by the neck, but removed before death
3.Disembowelled, and the genitalia and entrails burned before the victim's eyes; the heart was the last to be removed and was then shown to the victim before the entrails were burned.
4.Beheaded and the body divided into four parts (quartered).

I'm just saying.... :shrug:

13. I don't believe in the death penalty.
I'd gladly put my tax dollars toward making sure these people never see freedom again.

15. I'm with you on that one.
I have no taste for it at all. This group would come the closest I have ever come to actually thinking about it but still, make them do hard time.

Maybe every 6 months or so we could all go visit and tell them what we think of them. Now that might be fun.
