I think anyone can tell why I'm pissed about this without me specifying. Seriously, who must die to put an end to the stupidity? I'll level a city if I have to, it's within the realm of my super-powers. Someone deserves an ass kicking.
I'll go ahead and say that if this is true, whoever came up with this idea is insane. I won't say for certain that this arised from the dark and twisted corridors of Bush's brain, but c'mon! It's like some crazy nobility thing!
