Yesterday, a federal judge sentenced three nuns to prison for their anti-nuclear "protest" escapade where they broke into a ICBM compound. Downtown in Denver there was a group of idiots protesting the convictions of the three. I had some fun ridiculing a group of the protestors on the 16th Street Mall during lunch - they lived up to my expectations of ignorance and inarticulateness quite well.

One of the themes of the defenders of these women, and it appeared in Diane Carmen's incoherent Sunday column (not on their website yet) as well, is that these women did little or no damage. The court found that they had done approx. $3,000 worth of damage to a fence to enter the site. But that claim is of course complete nonsense. These women breached the security of a location holding nuclear weapons. The idea that they did no damage is offensively stupid. The U.S. Air Force response to their security breach couldn't be tallied for the court but was no doubt far more than $3,000.

The claim that their actions did no harm to the national security of our country is equally ludicrous. In this day and age, the idea that a breach of security of a nuclear weapons site is harmless ought to make any sane human aghast.

I'm happy to see these three loons doing real prison time for their outrageous stunt.
