Thoughts Lead To Appreciation
Lashing out in retaliation is frequently uncoordinated without thought of its consequences let alone its benefits, such that revenge reverberates to strike the vengeful.
The grief of the people and government of Jordan is perfectly understandable and justified.
The gruesome murder of a Jordanian pilot through burning is not only irrational, but also unconscionable and inordinate.
The Islamic State ~IS through their horrid action shocked even me.
Perhaps, the Islamic State In Iraq And Syria ~ISIS/ ISIL have reached a new low in their determination to horrify.
Nevertheless, the retaliatory execution of Sajida Mubarak Atrous Al-Rishawi by the authorities in Jordan solves nothing.
Why was she not executed as soon as she was sentenced to death in 2006?
I thought the case was closed until her name resurfaced in a prisoner exchange demand by the Islamic State?
The government of Jordan of their own volition chose to prolong the inevitable.
The same pattern was adopted by the Pakistani government just less two months earlier when in December 2014, the Pakistani Taliban massacred 145 school children and their teachers.
In revenge, Pakistan hurriedly commenced the execution of Pakistani Taliban prisoners.
Was Pakistani Prime Minister thinking at all by ordering executions of Taliban since the Peshawar Massacre?
What had kept the prisoners alive all these while that was nullified with the massacre at Peshawar?
