  1. The reason they are beheading victims now is that they are getting an audience. 10 soldiers blown up by a car bomb doesn’t get near the attention beheading a civilian does. We need to deny them the attention they seek.

  2. Yeah Mark, ignoring horror is a far better solution than changing American foreign policy. Let’s just plug our ears and watch more reality TV. That’ll show them show-off terrorists who’s boss….

  3. Spare me the sarcasm. I’ve seen the pictures of Paul Johnson, and I’ve watched the beheading of Daniel Pearl. I am very aware of how ruthless the enemy is, that we should not hold back on pursuing them. I want a few unspeakable things done to them in return! All I am saying is that the terrorists want to show shocking things to incite fear and that maybe we shouldn’t waste time on their propaganda any more than we would waste time with Nazi or Soviet or Palestinian propaganda. It is not plugging ones ears to turn your back on something that has no value.

    (and just for the record I don’t watch so-called “Reality TV". I find it just about as worthless as terrorist propaganda.)

    I realize this view is unpopular right now - people want to expose the face of evil. I think there is validity to that point as well, but I’m not so sold on it that I don’t recognize that playing it over and over just spreads their message for them.

  4. Evil knows no bounds, and I’m afraid it will get worse before it gets better. Maybe Bush will take this as a hint to get tougher in Iraq, get the job done and get the heck out of there. As for Kim, if he were truly saved, he’s in a much better place than we are.

  5. Mark L, I am with you. This is all done to put fear into us. We need to stop the ’showtime’ it has turned into. I wonder how many views the blogsite gets, that shows the beheading?

  6. Stephen:

    Does anybody really believe that changing American foreign policy will deter these idiots from their barbaric behavior? Isn’t that exactly what they want?

    Wow, now that‘ll be effective. Give the Jihadists reason to believe that beheading civilians is the most effective means of altering another nation’s foreign policy.

  7. Walden Bello; Professor of sociology and public administration at the University of the Philippines and executive director of Focus on the Global South; 6/8/04; lecture at UC � Irvine; http://www.tni.org/archives/bello/resistance.htm

    Unfortunately, these tactics have also included strategically planned car bombings and kidnappings that have harmed civilians along with US and Coalition combatants and mercenaries. Unfortunately, too, in the Islamic resistance�s effort to sap the will of the enemy by carrying the battle to the latter�s territory, it has included missions that deliberately target civilians, like the Madrid subway bombing that killed hundreds of innocents. Such acts are unjustifiable and deeply deplorable, but to those quick to condemn, one must point out that the indiscriminate killing of some10,000 Iraqi civilians by US troops in the first year of the occupation and the targeting of civilians in the siege of Falluja were on the same moral plane as these methods of the Iraqi and Islamic resistance. Indeed, the “American way of war” has always involved the killing and punishing of the civilian population. The bombing of Dresden, the firebombing of Tokyo, the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Operation Phoenix in Vietnam�all had the strategic objective of winning wars via the deliberate targeting of civilians. So please, spare us the moralizing about the so-called civilized conduct of war by the west of and the so-called barbarism of the Iraqi resistance.

  8. So, it is therefore justified to grab an innocent translator off the streets and saw his head off?

    Spare me the moral equivalency arguments.

    And I would note that one thing that has changed in US military doctrine, we did not in the war, nor in any recent one, deliberately target the civillian population so as to cow the regime. Professor Bello needs to review the situation of which he speaks.

    Further, while the bombing of Hiroshima was a horific act, how many more would have died in a large scale invasion of Japan? Such is the calculus of war.

    Along those lines: whose lives are Zarqawi trying to save by sawing the heads off of Berg and Kim?
