Religion of Peace: Coping with Terrorists, the Pakistani Way

Pakistan has come up with a revolutionary way of dealing with murdering, low-life terrorists: give them what they want:

PESHAWAR, Pakistan – The government agreed to impose Islamic law and suspend a military offensive across much of northwest Pakistan on Monday in concessions aimed at pacifying the Taliban insurgency spreading from the border region to the country's interior.


"Our whole struggle is for the enforcement of Shariah (Islamic) law," Swat Taliban spokesman Muslim Khan said. "If this really brings us the implementation of Shariah, we will fully cooperate with it."


...the main changes were included in existing laws stipulating Islamic justice that have never been enforced. They allow for Muslim clerics to advise judges when hearing cases, but do not ban female education or mention other strict interpretations of Shariah espoused by the Taliban in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Hey, it works with pirates, right? I mean, paying ransoms has all but eliminated piracy near Somalia, hasn't it? Right? Hello?

Giving the terrorists what they want will work - until they want something else, anyway. After all, why not just take the coward's route. I mean, if you have no spine, no dignity, no values, and no regard for your people, it's a great solution.

Me, I'm for killing them. Bullets are cheap. Sacrificing your sovereignty and freedom is expensive.

As Ben Franklin said, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. "

Let's just hope the President and our Congress are too busy wasting our money to try this one.
