Unlawful enemy combatants!
By their own pronouncements the jihadi of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula [AQAP] place themselves outside of all normal legal protections. All means fair and foul can be used to combat the evil doers.
As extracted from Freeper:
"Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has just published its latest issue of Inspire magazine."
"It contains some items of particular interest and concern to Westerners"
• "AQAP is now advising Muslims in the West to target people in their homes."
• "They suggest using technology to plan home assassinations, such as Google Earth, small drones and cameras."
• "The magazine contains new detailed instructions on new types of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) inside of books, attached to automobiles with magnets and attached to doors in homes."
• "AQAP calls on “Knife Revolutionaries” to conduct knife attacks specifically on Americans, such as been happening in Israel over the past year or so."
AQAP UNLAWFUL ENEMY COMBATANTS. DURING A TIME OF WAR NOT CARRYING THEIR WEAPONS OPENLY. NOT WEARING A UNIFORM OR BADGE OF RANK IDENTIFIABLE AT A DISTANCE. ATTACKING IN A WANTON AND PREMEDITATED MANNER CIVILIANS.
Hostis humani generis. Common enemies of all mankind!
"Hostis humani generis (Latin for 'enemy of mankind') is a legal term of art that originates in admiralty law. Before the adoption of public international law, pirates and slavers were already held to be beyond legal protection and so could be dealt with by any nation, even one that had not been directly attacked."
"A comparison can be made between this concept and the common law 'writ of outlawry', which declared a person outside the King's law, a literal out-law, subject to the violence of anyone. The ancient Roman civil law concept of proscription, and the status of homo sacer conveyed by proscription may also be similar."
THE JIHADI AND THE TERRORISTS BEST DEFINED AS A NUISANCE? UNLESS THEY OBTAIN AND DETERMINE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION OF WHATEVER SORT.
Damned by their own very words and advocacy.
