Funny Old World

In Syria we took Jihadi John out with a drone. No problem. We have squads of armed police who take people out whenever deemed necessary. No problem. All these events are necessarily circumstantial. “Mad dog? Take it out.” No Problem. But now the UK wants to help two gentlemen get a fair trial in America and we get all the usual suspects jumping up and down and crying “Foul!” Drones and police squads don’t take no mind, if you’re gentle, if you’re kind… but American justice?
