So I did some Googling and found that video of Nick Berg being beheaded a couple of weeks ago. The version I found is five and a half minutes long, and most of it is devoted to the hooded thugs reading some statement in Arabic.
As I watched it, it occured to me to wonder why these idiots persist with this kidnapping and maiming nonsense. The world-view these wackjobs have is so completely alien to me that it's totally incomprehensible.
There's a part of me that serious wouldn't mind us pulling out of the country and letting them live in the stone age some more. Apparently it's absolutely impossible for these people to do anything other than shout and shoot and torture and murder.
Normal people do not strap dyanamite to themselves and go shopping.
What the fuck?
