Missing The Point

I beg your pardon?

This is what happens when context is forgotten.

The context is not the fact that Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi has terminal prostrate cancer. The context is that this piece of human flotsom was directly responsible for the brutal massacre of two hundred and seventy people.

Before Scottish justice minister, Kenny Macaskill releases al-Megrahi (if he chooses to do so) he should have to explain his rationale for doing so based on "compassionate grounds" to the families of every one of al-Megrah's victims.

Just in case you were wondering...
Com⋅pas⋅sion - {kuhm-pash-uhn} - a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.
