Truest statement of the week

On February 21st, al- Maliki, in Wild West (or rather Wild East) mode, announced bounties of up to $25,000 (30 million Iraqi Dinars) to any one who kills or captures a “foreign terrorist.”   So much for “… the development of a modern, accountable, and professional Iraqi military capable of defending Iraq and its borders.” Extrajudicial punishment, of course, is a feature of politically repressive regimes, resorted to without the permission of a Court or legal authority.
