Hear me out, damn it. I bet that at least once a week or more
somewhere in this country some joker who has an outstanding warrant for traffic tickets or back support or who gets caught in the act of doing something stupid decides he is going to barricade himself somewhere and shoot it out, or threaten to shoot it out, with the police, or decides to try to run for it in a car or on foot. Yet in all these "terrorism" cases we never hear of anybody making a break for it or resisting arrest in the slightest. Since these terrorists all "hate us for our freedoms" and want to be martyrs so they can get up to heaven and do the nasty with those virgins, why is this? Since any "real deal" terrorist with knowledge of a plot can expect to be rendered and tortured, and probably would spill the beans, why the hell would they not fight to the death to avoid capture? Why do they go quietly? It can't be good for Al Queda recruiting to see these guys being hauled off meekly to the pokey and I doubt Osama would approve. Why would someone who is willing to blow up an airplane while he is on it and kill hundreds think twice about engaging in a fight to the finish with the authorities? Is it that they don't want to disturb the neighbors? Because they want to get their security deposit back at the end of the lease? Why don't these "evil ones" have cyanide capsules in hollowed out teeth? Do Muslims not read Ian Fleming? I will believe that true terrorists have been captured when I see some them put up at least as much resistance as the Symbionese Liberation Army did.

1. Why surrender?
If the plot had happened here, they would have all "resisted arrest" and been killed immediately.

4. Welcome to DU. There have been a number of "terrorist"
arrests in this country and no one was killed. If these folks were the "real deal" the government wouldn't want them dead and the terrorists would because dead men tell no tales.

2. It's because the whole thing is bullshit. The real terrorist guys
are apparently so bad ass that we can't get to them no matter how hard we try.
