Rule 308, applied

welcome news from London. although i expect, just based on the article, that it was really "rule 9" that was applied, the principle is the same. a gratifying spectacle, as we used to say at VMI. the casual observer might wonder what deterrent value it will have. the answer is none; these enemy operatives cannot be deterred from their purpose, they can only be stopped. the only deterrent in this case is that this one individual has been well and fully deterred.

it reminds me of one of ltcol cooper's pithier observations: "in 1492 we threw the moors out of spain; apparently we didn't throw them far enough."
