gaddafi is dead.
i'm failing to see how that's a good thing.
i didn't know we were a 'string 'em up with a rope' bunch of people.
i foolishly thought we had progressed from that and had some respect for the rule of law.
if gaddafi was in the wrong, he should have been tried.
but trials are so yesterday, right?
instead it's kill 'em, kill 'em right away. osama bin laden, anwar al-awlaki, etc.
we don't do trials anymore, we just kill, kill, kill.
and howl at the moon.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
