Catching up on things that bugged me this week...

Oh great, more live executions.
The special criminal court in the south-eastern city of Kut yesterday handed down death sentences to three members of extremist organisation Ansar al-Sunna.

I am so over dead people. Enough already with the death penalty. Just abolish the damn thing.

Members of the public attending the trial applauded the sentence and shouted "Long live justice." The court said the three men would be executed within 10 days.
Some things never change.

The death sentence, by hanging, was widely practised in Iraq under Saddam Hussein... Iraqi interim administration prime minister Iyad Allawi announced its reintroduction in June 2004.
Rest of the article here, kidnappers release hostages unharmed but Allawi sanctions killing rampage anyway. Is something wrong with this picture? No, war always looks this way. Hideous.
