Missouri Bows to Demands of EU.

The governor of Missouri announced Friday he would postpone the execution of convicted murderer Allen Nicklasson, who was originally scheduled to die Oct. 23.

This is the first time I've heard of anything quite like this. Now the EU is treating our States like some third world wanna-be country.

Especially since it has now worked on, at least, one occasion.

I think it's a good move by the governor. He's ensuring that the shipments of the drug continue to arrive at local hospitals while he seeks another (hopefully US-produced) product with which to execute his state's convicted killers.

This is what Washington meant, when he said, "Why forego the advantages of so peculiar a situation? Why quit our own to stand upon foreign ground? Why, by interweaving our destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rivalship, interest, humor, or caprice?"

It's time for a little jingoistic nationalism, I say.

Exactly. But I do wonder what others would have done if they were the governor. Kill the SOB and then simply have US hospitals do without propofol?

All well and good guys but now that this particular camel has it's nose in the tent, what is there to stop the EU from making similar demands going forward? Especially with so many of our politicians being so ready to kiss European ass.

I think you might be over-thinking this. The governor didn't "bow to demands" from the EU. He received an economic threat, and used the authority granted him by the people of the Great State of Missouri to buy some time to find another, possibly locally-sourced, product to use instead.

I don't see it as capitulation, but as pragmatism. The convicted killer is still sentenced to die, but, thanks to the good governor, nobody in the EU will profit from his execution.

Win-F'in-win.

PS. We should be using electricity produced from burning Marcellus and Utica Shale gas to electrocute death row inmates!

Actually not all that well and good. Given the situation the governor did the smart thing, given the facts as they are reported. While its fun to be critical comparing everything to some fantasy 'how it should be world', those who have the responsibility to act don't have that luxury.

Besides, nobody comes close to us in telling so many other countries what they can / can not do with so many of our exports as well as conditions of our aid.

Again, what would you guys have done?

What's to stop the EU from making similar demands for other things they don't like? Pro-Gun bill comes to his desk, the EU demands he veto it or else they won't ship any more widgets to the great state of Missouri.

When does it turn from pragmatism to extortion?

I agree with Streaker.

Also on a different note, now might be the time to invest in US companies who make a product exactly like or similar to propofol.
