Good riddance

Good riddance
: We are better off to be rid of him:

Abu Abbas, the leader of the Palestinian group that hijacked the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro in 1985 and killed a U.S. citizen, died in U.S. custody yesterday, a U.S. Defense Department official said.

    But don’t you see?! He died in US custody, which obviously means that we killed him! Torture, Geneva Conventions! War Crimes! *Breaks down sobbing*
    I need my Michael Moore plushie…

    Do you really think that?
    Practically all religions–not only the Western ones, but Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism–have institutionalized mechanisms for restoring sinners to full standing.

    Check out the Democratic Underground. It’s all a plot by the Evil Bush Empire.

    When I heard about Abbas’ death on the radio late last night, my visceral reaction was “Good!” Then I thought about it some more and nothing changed.

    The only flaw in this is that he appears to have died of natural causes. That just seems unfair.

    Hey alex moon are that retarded. michael moore is a fool and could care less about you or the things he rants about. He’s just trying to make a buck like everyone else. As for abu abbas, people will kill me for saying this, but it might be unfortunate that he passed. He had reformed and could have possibly been of some use in convincing the young towards passive resistence. All this behind bars though.
