Castro: Al-Zarqawi Killing a 'Barbarity'

HAVANA -- President Fidel Castro called the U.S. airstrike that killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi a "barbarity," saying he should have been put on trial.
Feeling a little nervous there, Fido?
The United States acted as "judge and jury" against the leader of the al-Qaida in Iraq, Castro said late Friday.
Yes ... and???
"They bragged, they were practically drunk with happiness."
Yes ... and???
"The accused cannot just be eliminated," he told a literacy conference. "This barbarity cannot be done."
Hmm ... looks like we just did. Care to make something of it, Mr. Castro?
The U.S. military has said al-Zarqawi initially survived the dropping of two 500-pound bombs on his hide-out Wednesday, but died a short time later.
Initially survived? Hmm ... we must be losing our touch. Of course, why not let the bastard suffer a little like those people whose heads he sawed off on TV? Seems like a bit of poetic justice to me.
Castro said if Cuba used the same logic, it could bomb the United States to kill its No. 1 enemy, Luis Posada Carriles, who is being held in El Paso, Texas on immigration charges.
Now THAT's rich. Cuba could bomb the US. Well, of course it could. Then again, I'm not sure ol' Fido would be satisfied with the outcome.
The communist government accuses the Cuban-born Posada of masterminding numerous violent attacks against the island, including the bombing of a Cuban airliner that killed 73 people in 1976. Posada denies involvement in the bombing of the plane.
I have no idea why this was incuded in the article. This criminal has, to the best of my knowledge, nothing to do with Zarqawi or why we blew his sorry ass into oblivion. As far as what he's accused of by Cuba, isn't it convenient Mr. Castro suddenly gives a flying fuck about Cubans being killed?

I say we kill all of the terrorists, including Fido Castro.
