As you may have heard by now the Iraqi government has announced the resumption of punishment by execution for certain crimes. Included in these are the crimes of drug commerce and kidnapping. I hope this is a deterrent to atleast some of the kidnappers, as it is a much more prevalant problem than is reported. It seems that it is only reported when foreigners get kidnapped, but really anyone that has any money is in danger of being kidnapped for ransom. I hope the Iraqi government comes down hard on all offenders to send a message that tyranny will no longer be tolerated.
