Victory at last, victory at last, great God almighty, victory at last!

What a spectacular way to punctuate the ending of a less than adequate “Jihad Martyr.” On Wednesday, Al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui was sentenced to life in prison, not the death penalty, and I for one can think of no other way to disgrace, humiliate, and dispose of such a despicable character. No martyrdom. No virgins. No glory. Only shame and disgrace as the little engineer that couldn’t. There is joy in Mudville tonight!

This disgraceful coward could not even apply his terroristic traits properly, much less beg for the death he so richly deserved in order to get to his reward of virgins, etc., that his extremist views promised him. Quite the opposite; he will go down in history as the one who couldn’t, the one who taunted America during his four year trial, and in the end the one who thanked some God (obviously not Allah), for his salvation in declaring, “America, you lost. I won.”

He clapped his hands as he was escorted away like a giddy little schoolgirl. He couldn’t even hold to his demented view of his faith and express his desire to be a martyr. He has betrayed all, and we absolutely win. He has replaced honor and respect on the Muslim community by deferring to natural instincts and renouncing his distorted view of the Koran. Short of resurrecting the countless victims he had a hand on, this is at least a poetic justice for now.

Watch out for “Bubba” in jail, Zack. I hear he has an affinity for bald guys.

    I hope the man goes into the general population. He’ll be dead far quicker than he would have been should the jury have chosen death. And if any of his cellmates read this Blog, I hope they use pork fat for lube.

  • Hunter

    Seriously, if anybody on either side of the political spectrum wanted this man to die by death penalty, you are playing into their hands. Giving this man a respectable death, giving him martyrdom, giving respect to his beliefs, it would only encourage others. Let him live his life in a depressing cell, or to lose his life by some two-bit criminal shiv him in the lunch-line. To give him the death penalty would just make him out to be something other than than the headline-hunting, wannabe that he is.

  • Alex

    I sometimes can’t help but feel that this all plays like the script to another Hollywood gem and you can’t give your paid actors the death penalty. Closure at any price. I hope i’m wrong.

  • http://pjordansr.blogspot.com Paul Jordan, Sr.

    Alex, Alex, Alex, any other puke but this one, I might agree, but to dole out the death penalty to this putrid wretch would only serve to “rally the cause” These guys want to die, they live to die, 72 virgins and all. By jailing him, we deny that expression, and the beautiful exclamation point is the way he actually coveted life at the end of the trial. What a French National phony!

  • Alex

    Hi Paul. I agree we denied him all those things by giving him life and the irony of his last minute rant is not lost on me. But it just got me thinking.
    a)Was he, on any conscious level, denied the death penalty so as to deny him his “reward”.
    b)This is great hollywood.
    I think what we have a is a combination of the two. A risk taken to give us b) by engineering a).
    Soon everybody gets to understand what he lost by not geting the death penalty, so that the final outcome does not offend anybody. Prolife is happy and those wanting him dead now believe he has been dealt a worse blow. Genius! but just a thought.

    “Let the punishment fit the crime”

    By fate, science, or intelligent design, I think we have achieved that here.

  • Alex

    Well said, and enough i suspect. Thanks Paul.

  • Ruvy in Jerusalem

    I generally with Silas (comment #1). The thing that bothers me is that those others who ought to be there with the fellow aren’t also in jail. Perhaps the Almighty has something for “fun” reserved for them.

  • http://pjordansr.blogspot.com Paul Jordan, Sr.

    Ruvy
    I can only dream that ‘Bubba’ gets to visit them as well someday.

  • RedTard

    I think what he got is much worse than death. Solitary confinement for life is sick. After a couple years he’ll be begging for the needle.

    There won’t be a chance for Bubba or inmate interaction he’ll be locked in a cell by himself until he dies. He will get one hour a day outside his cell to exercise but that will be solitary as well.

    The US wins both ways, he gets a punishment arguably worse than death and doesn’t score martyr points.

  • http://pjordansr.blogspot.com Paul Jordan, Sr.

    Yes Red,

    If ‘Bubba’ is nothing more than a cockroach that taunts him, I will still be happy.

  • zingzing

    redtard–while i agree with most of what you have to say here, “The US wins both ways” is absolutely false. we didn’t win jack. nada. but shit, now we’re playing to lose it seems, gambling the fate of the world for some big money oil payout.

  • http://pjordansr.blogspot.com Paul Jordan, Sr.

    zingzing,

    “”The US wins both ways” is absolutely false. we didn’t win jack. nada. but shit, now we’re playing to lose it seems, gambling the fate of the world for some big money oil payout.”

    How does this fit in with Moussaoui, and martyrdom denial, etc.? I thoght Red Tard hit it pretty close to the head.

    Well, then they should spin him in circles before placing him in a round cell, and deny him info on which way is East.

  • Joey

    He’s not going into general population.

    Besides, we don’t send people to prison to get raped, or to endure the punishment of general population. That would be cruel and unusual punishment. Unfortunately that is exactly what prison has become.

    Send them to prison the receive their punishment, not to pay for their mistakes.

    Kind of a double whammy, and it certainly is not the original intent of the penal system.

    It’s a disgrace. All prisoners should be locked down hard. The debt to society would be better paid if the additional “punishment” didn’t include “jailhouse justice.”

  • zingzing

    Paul: “How does this fit in with Moussaoui, and martyrdom denial, etc.?”

    are you kidding? what the hell did we win? the right to take of some crazy man for the next 40 years? big whoop! the right to bury thousands of people? yeah! fun! we didn’t win shit. sure, moussaoui didn’t win either, but to claim that we won anything is just silly.

  • steve

    usually im one for the death penalty…but I would rather let this low-life rot in a 6×8 23 hours a day

  • http://pjordansr.blogspot.com Paul Jordan, Sr.

    Ok zingzing,

    The sky is falling, the world is ending and we are all doomed to eternal damnation. Take no solace from the little victories along the way and hide safely here in blogland, lest you venture out to face the real world once again. 9/11 is over, we are at War. Both physically and spiritually, look around, read some comments, it will be ok, and if for you it won’t? Well it will be what it will be. Move on.

    steve says it well, above.
    “let this low-life rot in a 6×8 23 hours a day”

    That 6×8 is there and paid for whether it is attended or not, an I personally feel some sense of pride in our judicial system to use it well.

  • mike

    The only virgin he will be seeing will be Palmela Handerson.

  • zingzing

    so… instead of, you know, the lives of… how many people have died because of 9/11 and this war?… lots of people, you’d rather have some idiot rotting in jail?

    weigh those options. we won what now?

    i’m not particularily upset about 9/11 anymore, so i don’t really need “solace” in this “little [piece of shit] victory.” i just don’t think that putting some guy who, at best, played a small part in what happened. there are tons of other people more directly involved who we haven’t caught. like bin laden. that would be something. this guy is nothing. he’s a piece of shit that the media holds up as some sort of big bad man. fuck off. he’s just a little bit player who wanted some glory, and he got it… he just wanted attention… he didn’t want to die or be a martyr.

    nobody “won” jack here. it’s a lose-lose situation. let him rot. great. he should be in jail. just don’t think it’s some great victory for america or something. it’s rabbit pellets. it means nothing.

  • zingzing

    hrm. i fucked that up. paragraph 3, sentence 2 should read “i just don’t think that putting some guy in jail who, at best, played a small part in what happened is some great fucking coup.” or something like that.

  • http://pjordansr.blogspot.com Paul Jordan, Sr.

    You said the words of victory and you didn’t even notice.

    “this guy is nothing. he’s a piece of shit that the media holds up as some sort of big bad man. fuck off. he’s just a little bit player who wanted some glory, and he got it… he just wanted attention… he didn’t want to die or be a martyr.”

    And it is exactly for this reason, this “peice of shit” should not have gotten the death penalty, you were correct in saying, “he didn’t want to die or be a martyr.” But the very second this guy would have been put to death, regardless of his true religious colors, the “Jihad” assholes of the world would have raised a banner with his name in batle cry, the likes of which Bin Laden only dreams of. So, no, this does not put 3000 people back on earth, but it damn sure influences the number of remaining souls here on earth that will not die in this pukes name!

  • zingzing

    that’s true. but it still isn’t a victory, it just prevents other, unrelated losses. yeah for us! this isn’t a game, so there is no winner. we’ve already lost more than we could ever hope to gain in the future.

  • zingzing

    so no, i do not consider this a victory. it’s just more suffering.

  • http://pjordansr.blogspot.com Paul Jordan, Sr.

    zing,

    “it just prevents other, unrelated losses. yeah for us!”

    Are you daft man? “just prevents”? That is a Good Thing

    “this isn’t a game, so there is no winner”

    Again, are you serious? Of course it’s a game! An ugly game for power between religions, ideals, countries, and yes, money. All wars are a game to the warlords, and “Yes Virginia”, someone ALWAYS loses, and someone ALWAYS wins. Do you study history, or just react “from the gut” like Colbert?

  • zingzing

    sure, it’s a good thing. jesus christ, you’re fucking turning everything i say all around, just to fit into some fucking purpose that i can’t figure out. no, we did not WIN anything. you call this a game, fine. call it a game. what does that prove? i call it a war, a stupid fucking war with no real fucking point.

    do i study history? is this history already? i suppose so… no, i don’t study history, and yes, i react. do you study linguistics? do you comprehend english? THIS IS NOT A VICTORY FOR ANYONE. get it? what have you gained? safety? hell, no. future prevention of death? not really. maybe. possibly. you can’t say.

    you’re not really making your point very well. if all wars have winners and losers, who won in world war I? us? naw, we died in trenches like everyone else. world war II? yes, the jews won out in the end! EVERYONE LOSES IN WAR. it’s really fucking simple. that’s what i’m saying.

    if you want to wave the flag and weep happy tears because this guy is in jail, if you want to feel safer because this guy is in jail, if you want to yell “rot!” at him and clench your fist in victory, go ahead. i don’t give a fuck. it doesn’t improve our situation one little bit. just don’t tell me to be happy-happy about this. it’s nothing to be happy about, or even relieved about.

    don’t you feel the least bit like you’re being manipulated by someone? the press maybe… the administration? hmm? it seems a little fishy to me.

    go wave your flag and praise america! woo-hoo!

  • http://pjordansr.blogspot.com Paul Jordan, Sr.

    zingzing says:

    “you’re not really making your point very well.”

    Well let me reiterate my point, since you obviously missed it in the post above.

    “What a spectacular way to punctuate the ending of a less than adequate “Jihad Martyr.” On Wednesday, Al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui was sentenced to life in prison, not the death penalty, and I for one can think of no other way to disgrace, humiliate, and dispose of such a despicable character.”

    While I have enjoyed the extra traffic to my post, I must say in advance, I won’t be responding to your comments on this post anymore, I feel like we’ve just about covered it and I will let you go and take a much needed Valium. (Waiving flag as I wave goodbye)

  • zingzing

    fuckin hell. i completely agree that his sentence was the correct thing to do. i’ve said it a lot of times already. it’s getting fucking stupid how many times i have to say it. read!

    you go bask in your “victory.” i don’t want to talk anymore either. you obviously have no clue what i am talking about, and you don’t bother to respond to any of my questions anyway… so what’s the goddamn point.

    have fun.

  • http://musical-guru.blogspot.com Michael J. West

    Everyone in this argument has points that are correct. I personally agree with Paul and RedTard that we did win with Moussaoui’s life imprisonment. But I also think that that win is incredibly hollow.

    We’ve convicted and jailed someone who was, at best, tangentially involved in 9/11. Regardless of what Moussaoui knew and didn’t tell, he’s a scapegoat. He’s the closest we can get to prosecuting someone involved in 9/11, and he’s not all that close in the big picture so we trump him and his trial up as much as we can.

    Still, the fact was that he was prepared to do murder and die for the cause, and he admitted as much. That’s the most important reason to put him into prison for life. That’s the best victory that America gets out of this.

    Have we won justice for 9/11, even in the most vague sense? No. Giving Moussaoui justice is a weak stand-in for giving justice to the real culprits behind 9/11.

  • http://pjordansr.blogspot.com Paul Jordan, Sr.

    Well put Michael,

    And that is the point I make in saying “the little victories along the way”. They by no means win ‘the war’, but every once in a while we have to take solace in the miniscule gains in order to prevent our total despair. These are bleak times on some fronts, but not on all.

    Thanks for the comment.

  • zingzing

    i’d bet there’s some terrorist watching al-jazeera in tehran (or maybe cnn in toledo) chuckling and saying to his bud, “look at ’em runnin’ scaird, the pussies. you and i both know they want to kill him. stupid americans.” they’re probably getting a little thrill out of it all.

    i just don’t care at all about this. it makes no difference.

  • zingzing

    jesus christ… i’ve been saying the same goddamn thing for the last two days. you just wanted to argue.

  • http://musical-guru.blogspot.com Michael J. West

    Put it another way: remember Melville’s description of Ahab’s obsession with Moby Dick?

    “And he piled upon the whale’s white hump the sum of all his rage and hatred from days old and present, had his chest been a cannon, he would have shot his heart upon it.”

    America is Ahab; Moussaoui is Moby Dick.

  • zingzing

    pessimism vs. optimism. malaise vs. hope. eyes wide open vs. false pride.

  • http://musical-guru.blogspot.com Michael J. West

    For the opposite extreme you can also listen to Michael Savage, who says that Moussaoui’s lawyers and the judge that didn’t give him death should all be tried for sedition.

  • Arch Conservative

    “America is Ahab; Moussaoui is Moby Dick.”

    In that case hopefully the gaurds and warden will look the other way every day when they allow other inmates into Moussaoui’s cell to beat the shit out of him.

  • zingzing

    oh god…

  • http://pjordansr.blogspot.com Paul Jordan, Sr.

    “oh god…”

    The first word out of Moussaoui’s mouth when he realizes what his reality is now.

  • zingzing

    i thought it was something completely different.
