I agree completely. While I don't think the supreme pepperoni cares a bit about what the world thinks, it seems to me that the same can't be said about everyone in the establishment. It is harder to beat an old lady's head in with a baton if you think the whole world is watching. Thus the efforts by the guard to blackmail the families of martyrs into silence in exchange for the bodies of their loved ones. Ahmamadmax's heart is made of coal, and a crusty old lump of coal at that. I think the only thing that would make his heart soften is if he felt that the guard was going wobbly on him. Take a look at the old pics of him during the hostage crisis. He doesn't look to me like the kind of guy who gives two shakes of a fat rat's ass what the world's opinion of him is.
