Karzai Government Carries Out Mass Executions

Whooee! Well friends an' foes, I ain't done much boogin' fer a spell but I seen somethin' yesterday that got me chewin' nails an' fartin' tacks. Our allies, the Hamid Karzai Warlords, Mullahs and Opium Growers Association, handed out the death penalty to 15 criminals. They shot 'em. They used a firin' squad.

Canada and the rest of the civilized world quit usin' the death penalty years ago. There's still a few totalitarian regimes like BushLand an' Red China where they still have it but mostly it's gone the way of slavery, torture and corporal punishment and other official acts of barbarism.

The warlords say they ain't got any intention of holdin' off on executions just on accounta some namby-pamby human rights advocates. Back in 2004, Karzai did say he was puttin' a moratorium on death sentences. Guess they lifted the moratorium.

One of the crimes they executed somebody for was adultery.

Those executed had been found guilty of crimes such as murder, kidnapping, rape, adultery and armed robbery.


The executions were in accordance with Afghanistan's constitution and its adoption of Sharia Law.
This week's executions were carried out in accordance with Islamic Sharia law and are a lesson to others who are taking advantage of unrest in the country, AFP cited state broadcaster Radio Television Afghanistan (RTA) as saying.
Karzai wants to bring the Taliban into his gummint. Why bother with formalities? They're already there. And our soldiers are dying for them.

Welcome back JimBobby!

And thats the question of the decade eh?
Why are Canadians dying in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan? Some would have us think its for human rights....Like the ones you outlined in your post, or the Women who are still setting themselves on
, because they feel so liberated.

Thankee fer the commentin', Pale One. The 15 executions sure as hell ain't been makin' much of a splash on the news or even in the boogs. I seen a news story that sez the guy executed fer adultery was also guilty of murderin' 3 people. But the president's quote that these executions will deter would-be adulterers is very disturbing.

1, 2, 3 What are we fightin' for?
