considering the fact that...the internet is open, any information you input is subject to collection by anyone else who cares to do so.
Considering that I wasn't talking about the internet...
Considering the fact that cell phones are open transmittors and receptors of radio frequencies, any time you talk on one, you open yourself up to ANYONE collecting what you have said and heard.
Considering that I'm talking about land lines as well as cell... and that laws had been put in place since the Nixon Administration to prevent eavesdropping.
If your kids were killed by a person, whom the world can't decide is a combatant, or soldier, because they have no borders, and are not addressed in the Geneva convention statutes, would you want them to be set free?
Don't be ridiculous! Would I want a murderer set free?! Let me think about that for a nano secNO!
But wait... how do we know what these detainees did? There's been no trial, no evidence, no eye-witness testimony. Are you willing to toss out centuries of legal precedent? If you think these people are terrorist, show me the evidence! If you think these people are murderers, show me the evidence! And if you can't, then send them back to the country where you found them, safe haven or not.
Who is going to protect you? You? How?
Who is going to protect you Q? Sure, you might be able to deal with the drunken sot in the pub, but what about the gang on the street? What about the person who wakes you up in the middle of the night with a gun to your head?
Protection is a pipe dream. For every scenario that you see yourself whipping out your pistol and disarming the masked bad guy, there's many more where people are taken by surprise, or out-gunned, or so taken with rage, that in an argument they shoot the loved ones they were supposedly meant to protect.
The truth (according to the insurance company) is that vast majority of us will live to ripe old ages, more concerned with our lumbago than midnight prowlers. So I will take my chances, unarmed, counting on the police and fire department, like most citizens. While you, on the other hand, will fight off street gangs single-handedly and douse your house fires with a garden hose as you casually wave-off the fire truck.
The world can have only so many super-heros. I'd hate to wade in on your turf.
