Terrorists have been executed

23-12-2003, 05:00
A short while ago Rebeland was the victim of a horrendous attack. It was later confirmed that the BoN terrorist organization was responsible for the attacks. After the capture of 100 + BoN terrorists they stood due process in my country and were found guilty. As a deterent to other terrorists, they were publically executed (hanging, decapitation etc...ad infinitum). We hope that this is interpreted by the world as an intolerance to terrorism everywhere. Thank you for your help.

You yourself commited the acts of terrorism in this crime.
"(hanging, decapitation etc..." you related to the terrorists yourself by doing such acts, and your country has and will be shunned from our nation from this day forth.

How would your country act upon such barbaric beings if hundreds of your citizens were killed because of them? I shall have you know that they were tried in Rebeland's courts, as well as International Courts.

I commend Rebeland for executing terrorists which commited (as far as my intell shows) treason against an independent nation. Xrobb would of handled this situation not too differently if it happened to us. Don't worry about others comdeming you for your actions. You did what any sensible nation would of done. If there's a problem, stop it at its source!

trea┬Ěson P Pronunciation Key (trzn)
n.
Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
A betrayal of trust or confidence

The BoN members were from my country. So it wouldn't be treason. And second, we never gave you permission to execute Doujin citizens, be that they terrorists or not. We regret ever assisting you.

The execution of terrorists responsible for attacking a nation is the right of the nation that was attacked. I presume that sufficient evidence was presented to prove that the men standing trial for the said terrorism were indeed guilty? With great power, such as control of a nation, comes great responsibility.

You pubically executed 100+? You can't just decapitate a guy after convicting a group of people! They might not all have been guilty. The ones who were terrorists, but had not had enough evidence to prove they did anything wrong, should have been sent to trial to determine if that person ALONE was guilty. And even if they were a terrorist, and killed no man, why not just sentence them to prison. And public Execution by hanging and decapitation? That's a bit barbaric.

You have my backing. Execution is prime if it was your citizens who were killed due to terrorism.

We applaude Rebeland for waging war against terrorists. However we do not agree that the punishment being so barbaric was called for.
23-12-2003, 06:21
Its either be barbaric, and prevent this from happening again, or go easy on them and invite other terrorist attacks. It's either their lives or your citizens, I don't think that it's that hard of a decision.

And sorry about saying that it was treason, my intell isnt that great...

But publically executed and so brutally? If you're going to kill them, don't revert to Ancient-Medieval tactics. Hanging and beheading are examples of that. If you give them something like the lethal injection or firing squad, they will still die, even if it is going a bit easy on them.

The method of execution, as said, was too barbaric. Death by 'firing squad'....in this case it's more like death by stationary gattling guns (NOTE: 100 persons) would have been more appropriate. As far as public execution...big no no. Children...women...and just the intelligence in doing so. As far as the trail...I should hope it was a military tribunal. Because technically only military courts can hear such cases and rule in such a manner on them, plus it makes it more just. The tribunal should have consisted of the country which was attacked, the country in which the bulk of the terrorists are citizens in, and another country that is fair and bias, that has been picked by both nations/or another closely related country. Also, this is a long process, because you must hold a sub-trial for each person. Last, the tribunal consisting of 7 persons, would have to have a 4/7 rule in order to convict them, and a 5/7 rule in order to execute them.
Anywho...just thought I'd fill all of you in on that last part for future reference..pretending anyone cared.

The Holy Empire of Type R Intrepids commends Rebeland for his actions in punishing those that terroized his people and land. My empire does not condone such behavior by terrorists. It was all over this mornings news paper!

I notice that very many objections are based on the fact that the 100+ members of the terrorist group implicated were publicly executed.

We do not know that they were unjustly convicted. The spokesman for Rebeland has said they were convicted through due process, and it is a bit hasty (to say the least) to accuse his nation's courts of miscarriage of justice simply because they handled a large number of cases. How many suspects were acquitted? That might help us form an opinion. Whatever the case, the fact of Rebeland's government endorsing capital punishment is not sufficient grounds for leveling the accusation of terrorism.

In addition, I notice much scorn was directed toward the method of execution. While the Confederacy that I represent is not fond of capital punishment and the sentence of death is not handed down, if such a punishment is accepted in Rebeland, the courts of that nation have only acted as they saw fit to deliver justice. We may find public execution distasteful, but it doesn't justify accusations of terrorism.

But the criminals were tried together, not for individual crimes. If they had been tried for individual crimes many lives, terrorist or not, would have been saved. As most people know, only people involved in ONE act can be tried in a military court. And if tried in a international court were is the evidence to the case?

You don't have to do the barbaric acts you commited, live in exile, life inprisonment with phycoartric help, and other options were not even considered in your courts.

100+ men are not to be murdered in public. As mentioned before, women, children, and other people would have been there, so not only did you execute terrorists from another country, you said before that it is a sign to terrorists, but you united terrorists as terrorists united America on the September 11th bombings.

The United Empire of Colerica commends your nation for eliminating your terrorist problem. We did a very similar thing to the GLA terrorists that were in our country. And we still await the trial and conviction of the Eric Ledger.....

The PFM government strongly condemns the execution of freedom fighters. Rebeland and Colerica will no longer be sheltered from terrorist attacks based from PFM lands.
24-12-2003, 03:53
Let me put a few of your questions/concerns to rest. First off, each terrorist was individually interrogated, and tried in a legitimate court. Second, Doujin, when you handed over the terrorists you gave me the right to try them in my country (because of the atrocity they commited) and in turn gave me the freedom to do with them as I saw fit after they were sentenced. These terrorists were human beings, but they threw their lives away after they decided to kill INNOCENT Rebelandi citizens.
P.S. There were two men who were associated with the BoN organization that merely received 5 year prison sentences, not death!
24-12-2003, 03:56
P.S.S. My mistake, only thirty men were publicly executed. Forty were given life sentences, and thirty have been sent to Rebelandville for further questioning.

On further examination, the United Empire of Colerica withdraws its previous statement. We have no stance on this issue...

OOC: I'm still young...PFM is smaller than me, but it's part of A-Corp...the last thing I need to do is tick them off...

((In regards to the US barabaric executions. Utah and five other states allow death by firing squad and/or death by hanging. Three of the six states are in the process of changing that however. And yes, state and federal branches of goverment can do so, but because these people were foreign and committed terroristic crimes they can NOT, only a military or congressional hearing can convict them.))

I'm sure
And I know of the six states and firing squads and stuff but do they decapitate them, or do so publicly.

I was simply misinformed. And nothing more....
