I'm Confused

I have no problem with Saddam and his cronies getting the death penalty. I'm not bothered by the particular method of their execution either. Hanging is fine with me. I don't even lose sleep when one of these hangings is handled so amateurishly it results in decapitation. But when a member of the government we're supporting refers to that decapitation as an "act of God", I have to call for a quick time-out and ask for a clarification.

Hey Basem, did you mean "act of God" as in Force Majeure or did you mean "act of God" as in God's will? I hope it's not the latter because I'm pretty sure we've pledged to hunt down and crush all those who are into the whole "decapitation-as-divine justice" thing.
