...if you would like to execute people in Saudi Arabia:

[h=1]Saudis Consider Firing Squads for Executions[/h]

Saudi Arabia is considering firing squads as an alternative means of execution.



A special inter-ministerial committee has recommended that because of the scarcity of swordsmen and their unavailability in a number of regions the princes who govern Saudi provinces should be free to use firing squads, according to a statement from the committee, reported in Saudi newspapers on Sunday.


The few officially authorized swordsmen were so busy traveling between different regions to conduct executions that they sometimes arrived late, which causes security confusion complicated by the resulting spreading of rumors through modern technology, the statement noted.


Saudi Arabia is the only country that still executes criminals by beheading, carried out with a sword and conducted in public.

It's amazing to think that the US supports this country over all of the others in the middle east. The hypocrisy of our foreign policy is staggering.
