the entire EU, UN are a bunch of whining parasites that do nothing besides get in the way of an absolute resolve.
The EU is not at any level yet of real political bite to its member countries, it is still a rich mans club designed tofill the overfilled pockets of businesses. Although it does have some political sway, it takes so long for anything to get decidede that most member states go and create their own ruling anyway.
In the case of this terrorist, the French have every right to appeal against the death of their citizen in a barbaric legal system. I am sure the Americans love it when one of their citizens gets executed in the far east for drugs smuggling.
But also, would the death penalty actually stop these sorts of people? If the bloke was executed, then it would be more likely to make a martyr out of him, which would then create more people like him. This is a vicious circle that can only be got out once we learn to stop killing these people.
