Yes, it is true. Remember the Bali Bombers? These were the terrorists who bombed a night club in Indonesia killing scores of people. The Indonesians are using this case to prove they know how to fight terror as well or better than anyone. First, the terrorists got a trial. Now, very soon these terrorists are going to be shot. Read about it here. http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,24067751-2,00.html I've longed believed, ever since reading about Indonesia caning vandals, that Indonesia has a lot teach the USA about how to deal with criminals. What do you say?

I completely agree with their methods. My idea of being tough on crime is to actually punish the criminals, not lock them up to be fed and allowed to watch TV, lift weights, and all of that other cushy life things they enjoy at our expense. If a crime requires Capital Punishment, then do so... swiftly and publicly... as a deterent and warning to others. Everything else should be hard labor... or maybe public floggings ... whatever it tales to make crime expensice and unappealing to the criminals.

The Chinese sure have a winner with sending the criminal's family a bill for the bullet. The occaisional executioner's bullet to the back of the head of a rapist in a soccer stadium filled with people who turned out just to watch is good, too. This could easily be adapted to the USA. How many criminals could be executed during a super bowl half time? You could even have a ticket drawing for the privilage of pulling the trigger on each criminal. Imagine it! With each trigger squeeze the country and even the world becomes a slightly better place. Instead of the football leaque having to spend money for a half time show, they could do a pay for view of the executions and make money.

I do wonder why we do not use the lessons that John "Blackjack" Pershing taught us. During the Philippine-American war American soldiers were being attacked by Philippine Moro Muslim guerrillas. Pershing commanding the US troops order captured Muslim guerrillas to be shot with a bullet dipped into pig fat and then buried underneath a pig. Now I know that sound harsh but let us remember that Muslims believe that touching a pig makes them unclean and will prevent them from going to heaven. That means no virgins, and no reason to get yourself killed.

You have touched upon a bit of the difference between the military of then and now. Then success was the standard by which an officer's effectiveness was judged. Today, more important than anything is to be politically correct. You can not be insensitive to an enemy's religious beliefs. Not that I agree with this by any means.

Very much deserved. People sometimes forget here in the USA what a great country is Indonesia. We need the reminder you provided.

Indonesia is one of the most populated Muslim nations yet it is also a progressive, flourishing nation and this piece of news amply proves why. I do believe that Indonesians have truly succeeded in separating the mosque and the government. Even today in their various national promos, they depict dance and drama from their Hindu past which they are not ashamed of. They may have embraced Islam but they know what their culture and heritage is. They also know how important tourism and other allied industries are to put food daily into the mouth of average Indonesians. They have acted with determination and strong willpower and I hope other Islamic nations take a lesson from them. In the process, they are also projecting Islam as a religion that has no place for terrorists and killers of innocent people.

Indonesia is certainly a Muslim country the USA should be able to get along with. Hopefully, other nations of all kinds will learn from their example.
