A military jury decided this week to recommend the death sentence for convicted Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who killed 13 people and wounded another 32 when he opened fire on a building packed with unarmed soldiers and civilians in 2009.

    Who cares what Nidal Hasan wants?

    Some say murderer Nidal Hasan should not have been given the death penalty, because that is what he wants, to achieve martyrdom.

    I could care less what he wants.

    The fascist/terrorists, imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, are martyrs to their cause.

    Who cares, except for those very few fascist/terrorists who have no need for martyrs to continue in their hatred based campaigns of murdering good, innocent people, as Hasan did?

    Why don’t we pay attention to what is more important, that being why we give the sanctions that we do – justice.

    Why do some care more about what Hasan wants that what standards we live by?

    I could care less if Hasan thinks he will be a martyr, with either execution or incarceration.

    Hasan will soon be forgotten, as we continue making additional “martyrs” every day out of hatred based fascist/terrorists.

    It is the standards of America that we should stand by, not the sick beliefs of zealots who revel in murdering innocents.

    Murderous terrorists want to be martyrs? Line up. Justice will be served.
