The Right to Execute

And the interim president of Somalia says, “The US has a right to bombard terrorist suspects who attacked its embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.” Does it? Oh, good. That means that Haiti has a right to blow up the county jail Emmanuel Constant’s sitting in, since the US refuses to extradite the terrorist.

And hey, Nicaragua can drop some bombs on John Negroponte as a belated response to his part in the death squads in the ’80s. Iraq can bomb Rumsfeld for his role in the occupation of Fallujah General Hospital. Lebanon can bomb Sharon for Sabra/Shatila.

Or perhaps the US doesn’t have a right to execute foreign citizens with no trial. (Not to mention civilians caught in the crossfire.)
