America: "Love it or leave it"

Hey, isn't that supposed to be a phrase of the [overly patriotic] reactionary right? Not anymore! It's also Kent Conrad's (D-North Dakota) new mantra:

Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) told that civilian courts are well-suited to prosecute al Qaeda terrorists and that "if people don't believe in our system, maybe they ought to go somewhere else.

Conrad also dismissed a question about the rights of terrorists captured on foreign battlefields and the rules of evidence in terms of a civilian court trial as not serious.

Check out the video here.

I wonder if Conrad thinks all those Nazi and Japanese POWs captured in battle should have been tried in our civilian court system. And, if so, does he think those who disagree with him should go live someplace else?
