WASHINGTON - President Bush on Monday approved the execution of an Army private, the first time in over a half-century that a president has affirmed a death sentence for a member of the U.S. military.
With his signature from the Oval Office, Bush said yes to the military's request to execute Ronald A. Gray, the White House confirmed. Gray had had been convicted in connection with a spree of four murders and eight rapes in the Fayetteville, N.C., area over eight months in the late 1980s while stationed at Fort Bragg.
Now let's hope the death sentence will be applied to those who deserted durring the current conflict and ran like little Eyelids to Canada.

No dilemma. He had his day in court...now it's time to pay the piper.
Eyelids, Zathras is saying that deserters should be shot. I agree.
