This is something to be happy about?

I’m sorry, America. I just can’t get excited about the news that the U.S. has found and killed Sadam Hussein’s sons, Uday and Qusay. I’m sure they were really bad guys. I’m sure many Iraqis are glad they are dead. Ding Dong and all. But killing people, no matter how heinous their crimes, is not something I can cheer about. It makes me sad. It makes me sad that we have such a cavalier attitude. I’m not saying the US did the wrong thing. Frankly, I’m not even sure that right and wrong are relevant distinctions here. I’m just saying that taking someone else’s life is not something to celebrate. That’s all.
