    Easy feller, I have plenty of criticism for the US justice system, too. I just thought we were talking about NK.

    Jesus, now you're comparing a flawed legal system in a democracy to the one in NK?

If it made sense, regardless of the morality, perhaps, but there's no evidence it's helping..... But just as rightie tighties want to hang on to many policies that have been tried and failed, y'all refuse to see reality. Not all seemingly logical ideas actually pan out, the death penalty is one.
    Ok, but this situation is the highest stakes of politics, not really representative or comparable to a judicial system. If this had been a discussion of average North Korean who steals food and his relative punishment by the state, okay, that has more validity but this is almost beyond the scope of your comparison.

    Our founding fathers openly and personally executed men believed to be guilty of treason or espionage, without trial. Somehow, we get spared that liberal "righteous indignation".

    Yeah, that's true. As much as liberals hate America, I doubt that they'd give Washington and Jefferson a pass on this.

    You're right, murder as REVENGE is inane. However, we're not talking about revenge, perhaps that's why you are so badly wrong on this issue... you don't have a clue what the hell you're talking about.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Although this isn't it, something as seemingly innocuous as this will be the black swan event that topples the world into World War III
    We'll never know until we can look back on it with 20/20 hindsight, that is those of us that are left will...

    So you are advocating for more speedy executions in the US, some soldier against the death penalty you are.
