Most likely UN and European left-wing self-righteousness.
They could execute a 113 a day and I couldn’t care less.
Who said that the Middle East produces two things: oil and dead bodies? That seems correct to me.
Well, at least they arent waterboarding them.........
Definitely. lowers the recidivism rate.....
