Unu, Heloise, I was being a bit sarcastic, but I was honestly hoping Unu was joking. As I stated in my first post, I come from a family that has spend many years and many careers defending and protecting this country in many capacities. I have many friends who have done the same. To see some putz who has no regard or respect for this country and what is necessary to keep it and its population (that’s both of you) safe especially when he works in a field that shows him everyday what is necessary and actively works against its security for personal gain really really pisses me off. (I made a similar pit thread regarding White Sands spies a while back.)
By actively undermining the national security, I believe that he directly forfeits all the rights and protections that this country provides his sorry ass. That means full protection under the law, whatever.
There is a reason the founding fathers of this country included treason in the constitution and mentioned a punishment - and no other crimes. They were writing a document to establish a government to create a country. They understood that any act of treason serves to undermine and destroy that government actively or passively. They understood this so well that they put it in writing in the constitution and even spelled out a punishment. Let me say this again, because it’s real important.
Any act of treason serves to undermine and weaken the governments ability in its function to provide security.
The death penalty for him is fine with me. So is sending him to an “allied” country and letting him serve his sentence there is fine with me. Maybe Pakistan or something.
Rysdad, maybe suggesting that Unu give up his citizenship is a bit much. Perhaps (s)he’s overseas for nonpolitical reasons.
