The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

The Commonality of Murderousness

See if you can catch what all of these pictures have in common.

Bush said Saddam Hussein could have been hanged in a 'more dignified way' and one his closest Arab allies said on Friday a video of Shi'ite officials taunting him on the gallows was 'barbaric'.

I've got the big reveal, following the fold!

Intrestingly enough, I explicitly searched for protests based out of my favorite little dictatorship, and the only thing I could come up with was this surprising little gem:

After a quarter-century of remorseless brutality that killed countless thousands and led Iraq into disastrous wars against the United States and Iran, Saddam was executed before sunrise Saturday for crimes against humanity.(AP Photo/Hasan Sarbakhshian)

(What can I say? For once, my finely honed sense of sarcasm fails me!)

In any case, the big reveal should probably be obvious by now. All of these protests, taking place around the world, are committed by members of the "Religion of Peace," all of whom are mourning the death of a murderous thug. Now that's not to say that there aren't "Good Muslims" out there, but with all the attention the cowardly press gives the bad ones, it certainly makes the presence of any good ones far less obvious.

(On a positive note, I think I'm finally beginning to understand where the old English appelation, "savages," came from. Too bad the English are too cowardly to continue using the label, considering how remarkably appropriate it remains today.)

As an aside, someone in the Israeli government probably ought to smack Olmert with a little clue-stick: There is no negotiating with people who would rather see you dead, even if they find it politically expedient (i.e., they are not strong enough) to withhold their hostility from public view... for now.
