At The Risk Of Seeming Vindictive

The name of this blog "With Malice Toward None" is from Abraham Lincoln's second inaugural address given just weeks before he died.
"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."
Words to live by. Unfortunately in living these words sometime it is necessary to bear great malice towards some. One such individual is Hezballah terrorist and convicted murderer Mohammed Ali Hamadi, who was released from a German prison last week. You may remember that Hamadi is responsible for the murder of US Navy diver Robert Dean Stethem June 15, 1985. I won't go into the barbarity of the crime or the heroism of the victim they are both well chronicled here:
Last I checked the US Navy had several groups of crazy bastards whose thing in life is finding SOBs like Hamadi and shooting them in the head. I think it would send an important message to those who wish us harm and those who actively oppose us, that murdering a US citizen will get you killed.
