Leaving all the moral issues of Penance's disgusting "origin" aside, I'm offended by the fact that the US government would offer Bullseye ten million dollars and then dump him on a different country. His reward should be that he doesn't get immediately executed. And the plane ticket out of the US? Where's the destination? Whichever country they send him to should immediately sever diplomatic relations with the US. How would you like it if your neighbor dumped his garbage over the fence into your yard?

Sorry, but I'm not impressed by the concept or the writing, as shown in this preview.

...yeah, but this mirrors the American Govt in real life... this is the level they are prepared to stoop too. Look at Saddam Hussein... he fought a proxy war with Iran for 8 years, with the backing of the Americans, British, French, etc (where do ya think he got all the weapons from???) This shattered both countries, no one ever gave him any assistance to rebuild, so he went into Kuwait to get some funds... Now he's been executed BEFORE all of his trials so that it wont be put on public record which western countries / companies SOLD HIM the gas he used on the Kurds in 1988... gee thats convenient!!!

How many Dictators and Despots have the West (Americans / British, etc) supported from one time to another, only to turn on them once their usefulness had dried up... also, look at Mugabe in Zimbabwe, he's been plundering the land and posessions of the whites there, but does anyone care... NO... cos there is no Oil there!

...it might be unpleasant and distasteful, but its a reflection of how things happen in the real world... in particular, the American Govt.

...It used to be that the ends never justify the mean... but Pres Bush has ignored that... and thats what we are seeing in the Thunderbolts
