  • Iran terrorism compensation case divides Supreme Court

    This should be interesting........

    WASHINGTON The Supreme Court was torn Wednesday over how to help victims of terrorism recover financial damages from Iran without letting Congress dictate that result to an independent judiciary.

    With some $2 billion in assets controlled by Iran in a U.S. bank hanging in the balance for survivors of the 1983 bombing of a Marine Corps barracks in Beirut and other terrorist attacks, some justices balked at rubber-stamping a 2012 law aimed at freeing up the money.

    It appeared the court would find a way to rule in favor of the American victims the families of those killed in the attacks and others who were injured. But the result could be an acknowledgement that Congress can pass laws that decide lawsuits.

    Terrorists gave up any rights they might have had when they decided to operate outside the laws of civilization.

    Time to stop worrying about the rights of the guilty and worry more about the rights of the victims.

      Agreed. We ought to take any funds and any future funds form them till they toss out the mullahs. Now if they change governments that'd pose a new equation. Say if the Greens won and there was a newly elected government...

      What if they chose the same clowns to lead them? Kinda like us and shillery or russia and putin. Scary thought eh?

      Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman
