    You’ve been watching too many Hollywood movies and Fantazing about them .

    I quote you the words of a lady of the last war the most decorated woman of that war I believe and recently discussed by us who think we are all experts , but in truth only have our own opinions
    Nancy Wake... The third woman however, was entirely different. She proudly supported the nazis..it was unthinkable to release her..That left only one option ..Nancy ..had no hestitation in making it happen. “ I am sorry, she told the woman ...you will have to be shot immediately, and I would like you to prepare for that”. Nancy recalls , “ I went to organise the firing squad”..they the marquis drew the line at executing one of them (a Woman) in cold blood , and initially refused outright to do so. “ if you don’t , I will , Nancy threatened , and meant it...they reluctantly agreed. Nancy sat under a tree to have her usual breakfast of stale croissants and coffee... the sound of shots rang around the forest as the now shattered and naked body of the woman ... crashed to the ground...
    What are your feelings on that one. Different people will have different views. If whatever they are do you consider yourself able to make that decision ? If the answer is no, then you have no right to question decisions others make , in fact you are unfit to make any rational decisions in any warlike or any other disasteruous situation you are only putting forward theory’s of what you yourself think. Another question what do you think the family of the executed woman felt like , no one seemed to have asked ? JS

    A few weeks ago they arrested a, I think a Taiwanese National shifting $350,000 worth of the drug ice into a warehouse in Sydney, the police said that they had saved the lives of around 150 Australian people, the bloke, caught red handed will probably serve around forty years in prison
    what for? It will cost the public $millions to keep him there, he is guilty of attempted murder of 150 people, hang him, shoot him, whatever.

    Not certain if you are on the same thread or whom you address but, in reality:

    Wake was appointed a Chevalier (knight) of the Legion of Honour in 1970 and was promoted to Officer of the Legion of Honour in 1988. Shortly after the war, she was recommended for decorations in Australia but was turned down. Decades later, Australia offered to award her medals but she refused, saying: "The last time there was a suggestion of that I told the government they could stick their medals where the monkey stuck his nuts. The thing is if they gave me a medal now, it wouldn't be love so I don't want anything from them." It was not until February 2004 that Wake was made a Companion of the Order of Australia.

    In April 2006, she was awarded the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services' Association's highest honour, the RSA Badge in Gold.

    Wake's medals are on display in the Second World War gallery at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. On 3 June 2010, a "heritage pylon" paying tribute to Wake was unveiled on Oriental Parade in Wellington, New Zealand, near the place of her birth.

    Yes we are aware of all that Keith. Medals are pieces of whatever that is not in dispute the question is a question of morality and decision making , would you be able to make it ? If you say no , then you can only lie at others feet who can, and recognise your own capabilities .JS

    I was once told by a lawyer, there is no connection between the law and justice.

    If you break the law, even a speeding fine, you must pay the price.
    So if you commit murder, be it single or as an act of terrorism then you must pay the price.
    If that price is capital punishment then so be it.

    Apart from the odd sudden act of passion leading to death most are premeditated, with modern scientific knowledge it is possible to be exact on the time, means and finding the culprit.
    Why should society then keep them alive, they have compromised their right to live by taking the life of another.

    WOKE and others are helping to create a soft society where any person can literally get away with murder.

    It is and never will be a deterrent but if it removes some of the dross from the planet then go for it.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
