I placed this link to this April 13th, 2008 episode of PBS Secrets of the Dead" because it deals with the Aztecs. The episode offers new insight into the beginning of the Spanish conquest of the Aztecs. Please do not watch, if you are adverse to violence

I always wondred why the Mejicas didn't give the Invading Spaniards the same treatment...

You are welcome John, I'm glad everyone is enjoying it. However, History sometimes can shock and shake us up a bit, perhaps as a reminder to let go of all forms violence before we as a collective humanity become consumed by our own penchant for violence, and eventually destroy ourselves.

I can't decide what was worse, Aztec human sacrifice or the Spanish Inquisition burning women at the stake after torturing them with red-hot iron and half drowning them on the ducking stool?

Pogle, yes it would be a very hard call.
