An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, a Libyan intelligence officer who was the only person ever convicted in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, died Sunday nearly three years after he was released from a Scottish prison to the outrage of the relatives of the attack’s 270 victims. He was 60.
Scotland released al-Megrahi on Aug. 20, 2009, on compassionate grounds to let him return home to die after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. At the time, doctors predicted he had only three months to live.
Anger over the release was further stoked by the hero’s welcome he received on his arrival in Libya — and by subsequent allegations that London had sought his release to preserve business interests in the oil-rich North African nation, strongly denied by the British and Scottish governments.
You’ll excuse me while I feel NO sympathy, not for him, not for his family, not for his fellow ‘countrymen’ and fellow muzzies. NONE. ZIP. ZILCH. If GB was actually a civilized country, the piece of male bovine excrement would have been shot….repeatedly so he could get the full impact of pain….with a very slow death. Hand, knee, foot, other knee…270 times. No vital organs! Well, you get the picture. Nope. Can’t come up with a single tear to shed, or the least bit of compassion.
Now, I’m sure some folks will question whether or not that would be a ‘civilized’ manner of execution. Well, when it comes to his manner of executing 270 innocent people….yeah… eye for an eye in this case! I am suppose to pray for my enemies. Well, I do. I pray garbage like him get their just judgement!
2 Daniel spoke, saying, “I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea.
3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.
4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
5 “And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’
6 “After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.
7 “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.
8 I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.
