The fact that war criminals are now to be tried in civilian court does not bode well for your constitutional rights:
A LINE WILL BE CROSSED
If an enemy combatant can assert certain defenses, not in a Military Tribunal, which is the proper venue for war crimes, instead claiming certain protections such as the Fifth Amendment, Miranda Rights, etc., then the Rights of Citizens of this country will be reduced to the lowest common denominator. If war criminals are to enjoy the same rights as a U.S. Citizen, then they must be presumed Innocent until proven Guilty. This will give terrorists the equivalant of an "Open-Season Hunting License on defenseless, Law-Abiding Citizens.
If in fact, through some easily contrived loophole, they are exonerated, and are set free, the Legal Prescedent will have been set for any despot who arises in this Nation to try Legal Citizens under the new prescedent. In other words, Legal Citizens will be treated no differently than War Criminals. Such a state only exists in this Nation under the Executive Power to declare martial law, where ALL Rights are suspended. Gone will be the 2nd Amendment, Miranda Rights, the 5th Amendment-the entire Bill of Rights.
Conversely, the Justice System will have become a People's court, where you will be forced to prove your innocence. The burden will then be on YOU, not the State.
This new Prescedent will serve to allow opportunistic despots to rationalize, and to justify, your incarceration, or your execution, as an enemy of the State.
Americans, YOU ARE BETTER THAN THAT.
Better excercise your 2nd Amendment Right, NOW, while you still have it.
...and keep your powder dry.
God Save America
Your Uncle Sam

We are a nation that only knows the immediate needs of ones self. Other words, ME, ME, ME, ME! What is best for ME! How can I get something FREE! ME FIRST! I'm Important! Look At ME!
Well here we are. A Nation controlled by Socialists, Pacifists Liberals who are loaded down with Political Correctness. This policy Gives the most, is the most Understanding, allows the most, has Compassion and Tolerance and further, has special Privileges, Freedoms and Rights that, now, are being given out world wide. This is far in excess of what our Constitution and Bill Of Rights, which our founding fathers created, intended for us.
We have lost our will to fight or oppose issues, people, parties and governments who are undermining our rights, privileges, values and freedoms. Until very recent times, we had it too good. We didn't have to fight for anything! We earned what we wanted, or it was given to us, and everything was just fine. Most issues didn't effect us, those things always happened to other people in other nations in other parts of the world. It wouldn't and couldn't happen to ME!
Our Rights, Privileges, Freedoms and Values are all being diminished and/or destroyed, little by little, one at a time, and we are sleeping, literally, doing nothing about it. These changes are effecting us! They are REAL! They are here, today, NOW!
ALL Americans MUST FIGHT! Get up off your BUTTS and do something to correct this MESS and "GET AMERICA BACK ON TRACK"! Get behind individuals like Judge Napolitano.
No wonder our country is going down the tubes. Senators are now showing up drunk to pass legislation. Montana's Senator Max Baucus is drunk in the Senate Chamber and just wouldn't shut up even when asked to yield.
Is this what the Obama administration has planned for us, of course! We will fight, we are not going to lay down and let them stomp us to death. We are going to fight! We have nothing to lose, and everything to gain!
