Bali Bombers Executed

CILACAP, Indonesia – Indonesia executed three Islamic militants Saturday for helping plan and carry out the 2002 Bali bombings that killed 202 people, many of them foreign tourists, lawyers and relatives said.

Imam Samudra and brothers Amrozi Nurhasyim and Ali Ghufron were executed at 11:20 p.m. several miles from their high security prison on Nusakambangan island, said Qadar Faisal, one of their attorneys. Their bodies will be taken by helicopter to their home villages for burial, he said.

The Oct. 12, 2002 twin nightclub attacks — allegedly funded by al-Qaida and carried out by members of the Southeast Asian militant group Jemaah Islamiyah — thrust Indonesia onto the front lines in the war on terror.

The three never expressed remorse, saying the suicide bombings were meant to punish the U.S. and its Western allies for alleged atrocities in Afghanistan and elsewhere. They even taunted relatives of victims at their trials five years ago.

As 3 more scumbags get dispatched to hell, we can momentarily relish that vengeance and justice has been served while remembering that there are many more out there who seek to destroy us. May we have the resolve and fortitude to destroy them before they destroy us.
