Terror trials Controversies:

After much hue and cry, the U.S. has decided not to hold the terror trials in New York City after all. Why it was selected in the first place is a Mystery. It was said that since the 9/11 attacks happened in New York, then the trials should be held there right near the World Trade Center site. The U.S. has decided to provide USD 200 million for the trial.

There is a huge controversy going on about these trials. There are as many arguments against it as there are for it. Some argue that these terrorists should be tried in Military courts because they are enemy combatants, some say they should be tried in Civilian courts since they killed Civilians. Then there is this controversy about whether it should be held in the U.S. or outside the U.S.

Regardless of what one thinks about these trials, the question is why to have this trial in the first place. In this economy when we are so much in debt, do we really have extra 200 million to set aside for these people to put them on trial and for what. They have already shown their hatred of the U.S. and if given a chance they will do it again. What will this trial accomplish in the first place that we are a law abiding nation and we believe in dealing with these terrorists in a civilized manner. They don’t care about our justice system or for that matter our civilized ways. They have vowed to destroy us in the first place and this will be an excellent venue for them to vent their extremist propaganda for the whole world to see.
