    You mean following a formal and just trial, or "executed" by the overthrowers?

    I'm thinking the Romanian, uh, but can't remember how to spell his name.

    coups or loss-of-life in self defense count. . ."formal and just trial" is not on the table though.

    Romania is warm but according to my sources there is another candidate.

    Milosevic wasn't executed. Or was he? I've been in a cave these past three years, I'm sorry to say.

    Nicolae Ceausescu was executed on December 25th 1989 but there has been at least one other head-of-state "executed" since then. . .

    This was a sitting head, and not a former head?

    Heh, no New Year's Eve countdown for him, eh?

    Tom, ready to go to Iraq and start the "Sadaam sightings"? I'll bet with you roaming the countryside, Sadaam would log more than Elvis!

    Now that Saddam is officially the latest . . .I think the previous winner was Mohammad Najibullah of Afghanistan who incidentally met a particularly grisly end at the hands of the Taliban that unseated him:

    but maybe I'm missing someone in Africa?

    The President of Rwanda was shot down in his airplane in 1996 but I don't think it should count as an execution. But I was thinking maybe someone in Somalia or Sudan? Liberia? Sierra Leon?

    Yeah, that's what I was thinkin' of. And, I do think it was Congolese related. Did you follow all the Hutu/Tutsi conflict, from the get-go?

    You can get news about anywhere if you're willing to dig for it. Even in pre-Internet days. But you know that.

    I remember having difficulty keeping up with my part of the USA when I was in Belgium in '86-'87. But I could dig for it, and I did. Southeast news events weren't really in the papers there, but D.C. was. Wonder why?
