    I hope the delay isn't some ridiculous or cruel power play and it's for a legitimate reason that is in the best interests of the men.

    It is because the 'execution island' is full at the moment.

    Those two will be executed, especially now that Tony Abbott opened his big mouth.

    The new President will want to save face and agreeing to clemency would be seen as a sign of weakness and of being threatened by Australia.

    Quite frankly, I wish all this attention was directed to present dire issues in child protection that we are facing. I find that a subject far more worthy of our energy.

    These two men make me sick. I don't classify what they have done as a "mistake". Lacking good judgement yes, but a mistake is something done without thinking properly. Whether they were under the influence at the time or not, there would have been time in the build up to consider the ramifications of their actions.

    I hate them as had they had gotten away with it I am certain they would have continued to destroy others' lives for the continued pay off.

    They are selfish men,who clearly didn't properly consider the effect of their actions on all the truly innocent around them-the vulnerable, their families, their friends, the Aus public.

    I have been physically sick and so saddened when I first heard about this case FOR these 9; I don't know why. THEY made their choices.

    I whole heartedly do not believe in the death penalty and am terrified at the thought of what these men go through daily of late having their fate played with before them as if it's a game. I do not for a minute think that is fair. (I don't think it's my place to decide whether that is deserved however).

    Make no mistake though, from the very minimal - the sleepless nights I'm experiencing stressing about this to the families and vulnerable individuals who have to suffer through drug addiction and their poor, poor loved ones..,I hate them.

    It's not our country or our laws, every Australian knows the laws over there,, it's an epidemic for their country. Worse than ours, does that justify the sentence, maybe not. They aren't in Australia. ....end of story

    I wonder how many of those begging for the lives of Myuran and Andrew have lost someone to drugs. Those 2 have had no thought forcthe victims of their filthy trade. They need to be executed and Australia needs to stop interfering in Indonesia's justice system.
