Delon Armitage suspended for dangerous tackle on Chris Paterson

Just a precision: Ledesma was not out of the Tournament. But Gonzalo Tiesi, outside centre, was: http://dai.ly/nY1Jb2 after this dangerous late tackle, by the same Courtney Lawes.

Delon Armitage suspended for dangerous tackle on Chris Paterson

Please some explanations here:
- Courtney Lawes against Argentina: the argentinan being hit had his tournament over, it was clearly done on purpose. Results: no card, 2 weeks suspension.
- High Tackle, dangerous, by Armitage, against Scotland. Paterson clearly hit, on the ground. Result: no card, 1 week suspension
- "Spear" tackle by Hufanga against France, not so dangerous as the player is not injured. Results: yellow card, 5 weeks suspension
- Same "spear" tackle by Estebanez against Tonga, not so dangerous as the player is not injured. Results: yellow card, 3 weeks suspension

I can admit that any of these decisions, taken independently, would be acceptable. Clearly. But please, bring some consistency in here!!! Why so unfair? What are they doing to avoid being suspended during long time as the others?
