Wow, that was quick! It takes forever to execute condemned prisoners in the USA. Outsourcing Saddam Hussein's execution guaranteed that there would be no lengthy appeals.

The European Union has banned the death penalty. Countries and territories still using capital punishment include Afghanistan, the Bahamas, China, Cuba, Egypt, India, Iran, Iraq, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, North and South Korea, Libya, Malaysia, Pakistan, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sudan, Syria, Thailand, Uganda, and Vietnam - and, of course, the United States of America.

Birds of a feather flock together.
