It’s full steam ahead, demonstrating for the much more civilized nations of the western world the uncivil, Old Testament Hammurabi “eye for an eye” Babylonian vengeance of the United States of America, as the several states commit Premeditated Murder in our name.

One would think that our expressed repulsion in America to the human rights records of nations like Iran, Iraq, China, Pakistan, Afghanistan, North Korea, might give us pause to reflect on our unseemly similarity to them. They execute their citizens, too.

Most of the civilized world has turned away from such barbarism. They have embraced a different Old Testament lesson, delivered by Moses from God: “Thou shalt not kill.”
