It is a matter of time; Genocidaires can't hide forever

The souls of those in whose cruel deaths she had such a prominent role will rest a little easier from now on, even as she herself has enough time on her hands to contemplate the ultimate irony: The bill for her involvement in the extermination of the innocents she thought she had wiped forever off the surface of the earth has in the end come back home to her.

The souls of those in whose cruel deaths she had such a prominent role will rest a little easier from now on, even as she herself has enough time on her hands to contemplate the ultimate irony: The bill for her involvement in the extermination of the innocents she thought she had wiped forever off the surface of the earth has in the end come back home to her.
 
Let her fellow genocidaires reflect on this karma and wonder when the same bill might eventually be delivered to them, for it will eventually; it is just a matter of time.
