Ummm....

This isn't meant to spark any political discussion, finger pointing, blame, or whatever, so you can save it... this time... That said, I can't even BEGIN to fathom how fucking scared out of my balls I would be:

a. being a prisoner of war
b. sitting on the floor while the Iraqis read a four minute statement while videotaping it, and wondering what it's leading up to.
c. realizing that I was now going to DIE by having my HEAD cut off.

Pro-war or anti-war... conservative or liberal... peace loving hippie or angry and vengeful patriot... humanist or pessimistic cynic... It doesn't matter who or what you are, you gotta know that that shit is seriously fucked. At that one moment, when the knife comes out and they grab him by the hair, I feel worse for that guy than I have ever felt for anyone ever.

It makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it. I just wish he would have gotten out of there when the gov't warned him. Just awful.

I was just talking about that to someone, and I whole-heartedly agree. Just fucking awful. Did you see the video? I couldn't watch that.

I just watched the video.

I'm done screaming. I'm almost done crying. I feel numb all over and seriously sick to my stomach.

How the hell can one person do that to another person!?!?!

propaganda
I guarantee that's happened more than just that one time and at the hands of American soldiers too. I'm pissed that it's being made such a big deal when the other crimes of war are taking a backseat. I can't believe those American soldiers can rape women on they're own side let alone on the other side, but that was barely in the papers. Besides, I've heard plenty of comments from people that the tape was doctored and the man was already dead before they cut his head off. I'm sure they killed him, but he may not have died by beheading. The American media is notorious for being biased, so I'm just saying that I wouldn't 100% believe what they tell you.
