For the record, I wasn't inferring you were acusing me of anything (hence the smilie after the sentence). Perhaps I took your sentence a bit too literally for your taste (If you sentence a man to death for a crime you yourself are guilty of, you are merely a hypocrite). Having said that, perhaps you'd like to kill/execute the soldiers carrying out the orders as well. Technically, they are guilty of the immorality you accuse their leadership of also. Or perhaps you'll permit the Nuremberg defense of "we were only following orders".

As to the rest of it, I simply don't agree with your premise that the death penalty is immoral. Neither do I advocate using it profigately. Still no need to get testy (...I'd encourage you to go off and self-analyse a little).
