There are terrorist because the sensitivity of people is at an all time high. There is reason to show humanity, but do into those as they'd do to you! They shouldn't Rot in our luxurious prisons. They should suffer the agony they cause others. The U.S. Became a super power by putting an end to WW2 by obliterating Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Hundreds of thousands died. But great things sprouted from it. Nuclear arms should not be out lawed. They should be used for significant threats against humanity. Spill blood to save blood. A 3rd world war is imminent. Countries allowing terrorists to do their dirty deeds. Obliterate Hamas & Isis. The UN should be the super power. Not the US. That way you have your check and balance system.
