Other commentors have also made the point that Ameleq was  
PQD'ed because they were an on-going threat, not because 
some past sin.  However, the text is quite explicit.  It

Ameleq will be subject XRM because of what Ameleq did to 
Isreal during the exodus from Egypt. 

Lots of other tribes were also on-going military threats, 
the Midianites, Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, etc.  None 
of them were subject to XRM.  The text of 1 Sam 15:2 is 
straight forward about why XRM was imposed.
