    The Beheading of a US Businessman in Iraq

    Captured on Video, The beheading of a US citizen by five terrorists?
    Can the situation in the Middle East get any worse? Of course it can and it will.

    There are no demands, no requests, and absolutely no fear, the terrorists just want a complete end of the whole western democratic world!

    What can be done?

    Well, we could go in and kill them all.

    Or we could pull out completely, and let them kill themselves.

    Either way, no justice is done.

    You don't think they would come after 'us', regardless if where in Iraq or not?.

    Its gone way beyond Iraq now.

    What a load of crap.

    Iraq had nothing to do with Bin Laden's terrorism. It also had no weapons of mass destruction. And Saddam Hussein was such an evil dictator, so loathed, that hundreds of thousands of Iraqis were prepared to die to keep the Americans out.

    The invasion of Iraq is not an attempt to spread democracy, eradicate WMDs or fight terrorism. It's an attempt to secure cheap oil for the US at the cost of tens of thousands (hundreds of thousands) of innocent Arab lives. Face it, you've been duped. Even americans are waking up to this now.

    The beheading wasn't nice, but neither is the senseless killing of tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis by US troops, all fighting not for democracy but for a pro-US government that gives the US nice cheap oil.

    That's what happens when you invade someone else's country and crap all over them: they fight back.

    We're the bad guys. Try at least entertaining the possibility and see where it leads you.

    Well said Paul In particular it's astonishing the cloud of ignorance has taken so long to dissipate.

    I saw the front pages of the herald sun today about the 100 odd Australian merceneries going to Iraq and how they discretely put rectangles to hide the eyes which were not covered by sunglasses.

    And I thinks to meself

    (greetings arosar)

    As if covering just the eyes hides the identity ...

    Why don't the photo retouche artists remove the whole head to make sure their identity is really hidden ...

    and to give them a BIG hint as to what may await them?

    The pictures of the naked Iraqis reminded me of scenes from Belsen and Auschwitz. I did chastize Paul last year for using comparisons with Nazi Germany, but I guess I was wrong.

    There is an ever so slight difference in scale.

    And boo phuckin hoo for the naked prisoners.
    Sadam has spoken out and condemened it as the work of amatuers, stating that the piles of naked men clearly were not dead.

    You might not realize it but most college kids go through worse stuff then that just to get accepted into a fraternity!

    And you just belittled the deaths of millions. Dave! Way to phuckin go!
    I could only imagine though what your opinions would be if it was 19 Saudis that flew planes into a packed Sydney Opera House.

    The face of our planet changed on 9/11.

    Our tough stance???

    It wasn't ours and it wasn't tough. It was our PM following your President without question because Australia's too scared to attempt an independent foreign policy.

    Polls have generally shown a small majority of Australians opposed to the war.

    I guess every country has there ostriches.
    Some just refuse to see the bad turn that the world has taken.

    And killing nearly 20000 people while turning Iraq from an awful but completely contained dictatorship into an unstable and resentful breeding ground for future terrorists where many more people will die solves this precisely how?

    Um yeah ... who said that first ... it was Rush Limbaugh, was it not. You a fan?

    That similar abuses occur in the frat system just proves that the frat system is immature, conformist and stupid. It's one of the things about USA culture I have never understood.
