EUroweenie Hearts Bleeding Over Saddam's Death Sentence

The European Union is flying into a snit over the fact that an Iraqi court has found Saddam Hussein guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced him to death by hanging.
BRUSSELS, Nov 5 (Reuters) - The European Union urged Iraq on Sunday not to carry out the death sentence passed on Iraq's former leader Saddam Hussein after his conviction for crimes against humanity.

"The EU opposes capital punishment in all cases and under all circumstances, and it should not be carried out in this case either," Finland, current holder of the rotating EU presidency, said in a statement.
Apparently the "rotating presidency" business is a symbolic reference to Europe's current status of circling the toilet bowl as Islamist extremists burn their cities and murder their citizens with impunity.

The Iraqis have jurisdiction, and will ultimately decide Saddam's fate, but they don't seem to be in the mood for mincing nancy-boy measures with Saddam. However, the Euroweenies' pleas for the misunderstood Butcher of Baghdad have touched my heart, and I'd like to toss them a bone. I think that we should stop executing convicted serial killers here in the United States. I propose instead that they be Europe.
