not for the squeamish

I saw this around 3:00 on yahoo. They said there were pictures on the Al-Qaida website. It’s pretty fucked up.

This is f*cking wrong. I really feel like retaliating in some way, but it would only bring more violence. God Damn Islamic extremist bastards.

I was watching the news a few days ago where the family of Paul Johnson were pleading to the terrorists not to kill him. It was his son and his son’s wife that were on TV. It’s so sad because his son’s wife was pregnant, and the son wanted his dad to return home so he could see his grandchild. My heart goes out to the family.

I saw the pictures off of Michael Savage’s (political commentator) website. It must be really hard for the family to see them.

I hate to break it down in such simple minded way, but seriously, it feels like retaliation is necessary. I hate to say it, but it really does. I dont see any other answer thats gonna get through to AL-quedas heads. Seems like violence is gonna be the answer again.

Hideous acts like this just serve to unite all peace loving nations against the terrorists!

(eventually maybe even the the leaders of the democratic party will join in-sorry I had to)

How sad for the family that they lost their family member and now they have this reminder online for everyone to see.

I saw the pics on Drudge’s site. I think this was a real beheading - tons of blood.

It leaves me with an empty numbness - Retaliation is necessary, but at who?

Al-qaeda, which is a logical target, should be demolished.

But what about Saudi Arabia? Most of the 9/11 murderers were Saudi, Americans are not safe there any more, and they are supposed to be our partners in the war on terror.

I don’t trust them, and I think they know far more about what is going on in the terrorist circles than they are letting us in on.

I’m a civilian in Kuwait and when I heard that Paul Johnson got beheaded, it just really fucked me up. I’m so close to where all of the shit is happening, in between Iraq and Saudi is not so comfy but I chose to do this for me and my family. I know it was my choice to work out here as a civilian as many others, but I don’t complain. I can’t help it but to stop and think about what happened to him and the grief his family is going through. My first thought was,“Bomb whomever you see fit to be bombed, answer questions later,” why should America try to be a fucking role model for other countries. We need to set examples of our power so those against us think first before messing with us. Forget that ‘leading by example’ bullshit. Someone once said, ‘We’re a major world power! We should then act like one!’ And I believe we should. My thoughts are a bit rambled so please forigve me. It just pisses me off that we’re not doing as much as I think we should be doing regarding retaliation to those that harm us and protecting our American Civilians in the Middle East that are supporting our military. Fuckin muslim-al qaeda-extremist. They use their religion as an excuse to do things in the name of ‘Allah.’ There, I’ve spoken.

I think a nice thank you to G W Bush should be in order. I mean after all his administration sure has crushed Al- Qaida haven’t they and to top it off there is no evidence Iraq was in on the 9/11 attacks and now we have two innocent civilians beheaded while Bush is president. Tell me something Republican lovers how do you feel about Bush now?

I heard some cops were shot recently here in America. Damn that Bush for not stopping all the gang violence too.

Seriously, explain the Bush bashing. Tell me one person who could have eliminated the entire Al-Qaeda problem by now. Blaming Bush for this is like blaming him for not curing cancer yet.

We are talking about a secret organization hiding all over the world. If you ever see any videos they put out, 90% of the people are hiding behind masks. How are we to ever know who they are?

Please keep the blame on the level of reality. If there was a way to stop this, explain exactly how. (Actually I can think of some ways, but nobody in their right mind would approve.)

LeanCarlosBrown-

I’ve wondered if civilian workers in the Middle East would now consider it to be too much of a risk to stay there after this latest tragedy to an American. Have you heard of anyone leaving because of this or are most willing to stay the course?

Please stay safe, fellow T-friend!

Am I the only one who finds it a bit odd that the Saudi officials were able to find and kill Mr. Johnson’s captors so quickly AFTER his murder? :-/

LeanCarlos, you are SO right. These people need to be communicated with in their own language. Please be careful of yourself and your family, sir.

Are kidding me that Bush isn’t to blame for all the botched up shit going on now? Explain why we still haven’t caught Bin-Laden. Explain why Bush let Bin-Laden’s children leave this country on 9/11. Explain why Bush after being told about the first tower being hit still kept on reading to a group of school children. Explain where the Iraqi ties to Al-Quida are when none have been found! The reality is is that Bush rightfully deserves tons of blame and that Bush supports seem to treat him like he is God and is infallible and I hope that you The Mage do not fall into this catagorey!

Do you read newspapers? Do you watch the news?

Please say that you don’t, because if you admit to watching/reading anything remotely associated with the topics you are ranting about, then you are a fool.

Rainjack what’s wrong did I say something bad about your god? Don’t be such a blind loyalist.

Rainjack,
I’d be willing to bet that you and the rest of the Bush cronies will not go see Fahrenheit 9/11 and see the truth about Bush.

Wasted Years. That really is an appropriate name for you. You’ve wasted your years.

Did it ever occur to you that you’re just a shill for the OTHER propaganda machine? Of course not. You’ve chosen your side in a battle of liars and bastards. It doesn’t matter which side you take, because they’re BOTH wrong in one manner or another.

The only way to come close to being “right” is to think for yourself and not play other’s propaganda games.

I could see F-9/11 a million times never see a shread of this ‘truth’ you speak of.

If you are going to use Moore as your reference, then godspeed and I hope your doctors find a cure soon.
