The Enemy of our Enemy

This one comes via the infallible Cursor:
"Iyad Allawi, the new Prime Minister of Iraq, pulled a pistol and executed as many as six suspected insurgents at a Baghdad police station, just days before Washington handed control of the country to his interim government, according to two people who allege they witnessed the killings.

They say the prisoners - handcuffed and blindfolded - were lined up against a wall in a courtyard adjacent to the maximum-security cell block in which they were held at the Al-Amariyah security centre, in the city's south-western suburbs.

They say Dr Allawi told onlookers the victims had each killed as many as 50 Iraqis and they "deserved worse than death"."
Full story here.
It's one thing to sit in the comfort of our respective dens, and make clever witticisms to each other about what an evil bastard he is, but our compadres in Iraq have a whole different ballgame going on. 
And remember:  We're doing this to make America safer.
