Prisoners would be fed properly, receive medical attention, receive clean clothes and not be housed in extremely hot or cold conditions.
Cells could have natural day light and night time lighting during appropriate hours.
During the height of the Vietnam War, North Vietnamese just played games at the Paris peace talks to end the war. Richard Nixon carped bombed Hanoi on Christmas day and for days after, the North Vietnamese were ready to talk within days.
The only thing evil fears is the use is power to stop its reign of terror.
When prisoners are sent to jail for life without parole, they think nothing of killing fellow inmates or guards.
It is horrible to work among scumbag inmates, that is why it is nearly impossible to find bright young people willing to be correctional officers.
As a result of the Paris Peace accord:
All US POWs were released.
US forces withdrew in an orderly fashion
US promised air support to come to the aid of S. Vietnam if needed.
There was a truce between S. Vietnam and N. Vietnam.
End of the story, in 1974 Congress cut all military spending for the war and as they say, the rest is history.
Terrible mistake for the US to ever been in the Vietnam war.
The Vietnam War was the second in a long list of wars the US should have never been a part of, Korea being the first.
Unfortunately the list of unworthy wars is growing.
I'm not arguing that the war was a good idea inthe first place not that the eventual results were bad for the US-- but its clear the bombing is what brought the NVN into serious negotiations to allow an end to the war.
Are we talking history or the Death Penalty? O'M is feeling cocky because everything that went to referendum passed- which surprised the heck out of me, at least as far as expanded gambling went.
So I guess he figures that he can arrange for any referendum on the death penalty to go his way, too. So he can say Marylanders love him.
The only thing I would ever support the death penalty for is the highest crime of the land, treason. But nothing else.
Answer to number two is give me a time frame. Last forty, fifty, hundred? Im sure the answer is yes to executions before DNA evidence became available. After DNA answer is big NO.
The US mined their major harbors to shut down their war supplies from the Soviets.
That was a huge military act as Soviet merchant ships were purposely placed into a combat situation.
The whole point of this discussion is that bullies, tyrants, criminals, dictators understand pain and punishment, when delivered swiftly and forcefully.
The US hostages taken when our embassy was over run in Iran, were held captive for over 400 days. No amount of negotiations were going to get them released.
Ronald Reagan was about to take office and said he would do whatever it took to quickly end the hostage situations.
Just mere hours before Reagan was to take his oath of office, all of the hostages were released.
After 400 days of not suffering any consequences for taking these hostages, Iranian leaders decided they did not want to suffer severe pain from newly elected President Reagan.
Iran finally agreed to release the hostages after the US said it would release assets frozen in American and other banks, including the Bank of England, since the embassy was seized.
