Moussaoui Trial

9/11 jurors face complex life or death decisions

This is the title to the article revolving around the Moussaoui trial on CNN today. Is it really that complex of a decision though? Obviously capital punishment is no way to deal with religious zealots. If we kill Moussaoui we're just going to turn him into a martyr, if we place him behind bars he's going to cause much less damage than if he was alive. We would just be adding fuel to the fire. Nonetheless, the jury has yet to decide on the fate of Moussaoui, but you can be sure that there will be an article in the news for every day there is no verdict.

Also, If you haven't had the chance to pick up a book lately I suggest reading "Why Terrorism Works" by Alan Dershowitz. He gives great insight on ways we should be fighting terrorism and why it has been so succesful as of late. It's a good read.
