Someone to the Right of Me!

Ralph Peters argues that the guys at Gitmo should have been killed before they got there.  A bit harsh even for me, though I agree with his reciprocal conception of rights.  Still, I think there is something to be said for that policy when it comes to the subset of terrorists called pirates about whom, given that they are captured on a ship that doesn't belong to them in the middle of the ocean, there is little question that they are guilty.  Though even then the Royal Navy brought most back for trial ashore.
