P-R-I-C-K-S

Sometimes that is the only word that applies:

Video Seems to Show Beheading of American

CAIRO, Egypt - A video posted Tuesday on an Islamic militant Web site showed the beheading of an American civilian in Iraq, and said the execution was carried out by an al-Qaida affiliated group...

"My name is Nick Berg, my father's name is Michael, my mother's name is Susan," the man said on the video. "I have a brother and sister, David and Sarah. I live in ... Philadelphia."

After reading a statement, the men were seen pulling the man to his side and putting a large knife to his neck. A scream sounded as the men cut his head off, shouting "Allahu Akbar!" - "God is great." They then held the head out before the camera.

Berg's family said they knew their son had been decapitated, but didn't know the details of the killing. When told of the video by an Associated Press reporter, Berg's father, Michael, and his two siblings hugged and cried.

I'll let you decide if my subject is in reference to the people working for Al Qeada or the Associated Press.


Update: The video is now available.

Thank you, and I hope to hear from you. Frankly, the execution of Nick Berg was so revolting, chilling according to the audio tape that I did hear.

habatt:

If the Americans are that OUTRAGED.They should get out there and vote for an administration which will lead the human race rather than degrade it. I am sorry but the American public has themselves to blame fro electing Morons for there leaders.

Shadow:

I saw the video, it is an OUTRAGE. The descriptions of how it was done in NO way compare to what you see. Claiming the photos taken of the man on a leash and an American Woman holding it, as well as other photos, while still inappropriate, in NO WAY compare to the Horror of the Murder of Nick Berg or an excuse for any such behavior to such as that to occur. May God be with Nick Bergs family at this time, my thoughts and prayers are with them.

Chas:

I dare anyone who has watched this absolutely sickening video of Nick Berg's execution to question why we, as Americans, are fighting this war in Iraq and on terrorism. This video, which is by far the most atrocious and horrific image I have ever seen, just serves as a unfortunate reminder to us why we are doing what we're doing. These animals have no regard for life and will do anything they can to further their sadistic causes. I applaud President Bush, his administration and our soldiers for having the guts to do what's right. I am also outraged by the fact that the media all over the world still chooses to focus on the prison scandal, yet barely anyone expresses their anger over the Nick Berg execution. WAKE UP! OPEN YOUR EYES, PEOPLE! It is not difficult to discern who the real bad people are here. All I can say is that if there should come a day where those killers are brought before justice, I hope we show no mercy. God Bless America.

Malcolm:

Some of your commentors are of the opinion that the Arabs will never like Americans. They are quite right and the reason is quite simple: America gives blind support to Israel (the Middle East modern day nazis) and turns a blind eye to their failure to impliment UN resolutions.
There will NEVER be an Arab democracy no matter how often the right wing nutters in the US say it. America will soon pull out of Iraq and a new dictator who hates America will emerge. Wanna bet?

Nahhh.. those nutty Mohammedans will devolve into a bloody civil war that will last a decade at least - and I say that will be Providence at work.

People:

The world has forgotten that we are all people. Religion doesn't matter, caring about people matters. World terrorism will never end, but you can choose to enforce hate and keep this circle going on, or change yourself.

Punishments come in the afterlife, and so do rewards. If you don't agree with that statement then just keep it to yourself because I and several others do.

My prayers go out to the Berg family.

If anyone doesn't see Islam as evil after watching the Berg video and seeing the Towers fall, then they're living in a dream world.

FEE:

I WAS REALLY P-ED AT FIRST. AFTER SEEING THE VIDEO, I COULD BARELY SLEEP--ONLY THE VISIONS OVER AND OVER.

BUT, THEN I GOT A CALL FROM MY MOM TO REWATCH IT. THAT POOR MAN WAS DEAD WHEN THEY BEHEADED HIM. THAT IS WHY THERE WAS NO BLOOD SPURTING FROM HIS VEINS. THAT WOULD ACCOUNT FOR THE ALMOST 11 HOUR GAP BETWEEN WHEN IT STARTED AND WHEN THEY BEHEADED HIM. IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY, THEY STARTED TAPING AT 2 SOMETHING. THE BEHEADING WAS AT 13:00 HOURS.

MY ONLY PRAYER IS THAT THEY DID NOT TORTURE HIM

Joy:

The horrible acts of a few do not mean that the entire religion abides by the "cowards'" rules. So...Cyril...open your eyes and realize...just because a Catholic priest molests a child does not mean that ALL Catholic priests are molesters. Get a grip. George Bush is doing a great job & all I know is I look up to him for taking on "the world" and I know I could not handle it. God Bless our nation and the fighters and the believers...God have mercy on the unbelievers' souls.

You know what...you people are f**king blind!!!!!Our GOVERNMENT knew N. Berg was there, and the family of N. Berg has the proof, but yet you supporters of our piece of shit government want to believe what they spoon feed you!!!! Come on, there is so much more to this story then what is being told, cant you all see it? The Iraqi Police had detained Berg, um, if I am wrong, correct me...isnt the coalition in charge of the police in Iraq? How did our precioucs gov. not know he was there, and was he really involved in something we all dont know about?????? How can any 1 man sit there with 5 god damn bastards with ak 47s and masks behind him not knowing something evil was about to happen, and all Berg could do was sit and wiggle his toes????????? Look at the big picture here...something is not right with the whole thing and it smells of BUSH"s lame ass cabinet lackeys...I dont believe a god damn word they say at this point....time for a change and a revolution!!!!

chris:

What liberal losers. Nick Berg did not deserve this nor did America. All you losers from Europe forget we saved your asses. And all u sissy's in America can leave. The best thing for this war is a Nuke on the middle east. Kill the Animals. We need to create a large reward for anyone who destroys a middle eastern contry. They are not worthy of life.

chris:

Gabe:

America we reape what we sow! We've been giving Israel billions of dollars for years, and they turn around and bribe our politians with it and we pass anything they (Israeli lobby in Washington wants) and we've helped to destabalize the Mid East for decades and crapped all over the Arab people and their supposed to thank us? No, Bush (the checkenhawk)is a mental midget and allows Cheney and Ashcroft to bitch slap him. Most of the 9-11 gang were Saudis so we invade Iraq, the country that Bin Laden WASN'T welcome in because Saddam hated him. You filthy cowardly rednecks that want to call arabs "animals" ought to put your ass where your mouth is and JOIN UP! If you're so brave go join up and fight or shut the fuck up! Don't worry though if you don't have the balls to go there Bush will be inviting you to go in 2005 if he's re-elected, there will be a draft and this time our women will be asked to fight and wait until they take our sisters and daughters prisoners, I don't want to think about it. Sad part is that Kerry probably doesn't have the balls to go against what the Israeli lobby wants either and will continue this insanity. People you can't win a guerilla war and nuclear weapons will foul the atmosphere of the Earth and it'll be the beginning of the end for us too. There's no easy answer but the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. The only different result we're getting is U.S. soldiers aren't re-upping and many are killing themselves.
God Help Us, we're now in up to our necks-Thanks King George!

Kenny:

Fuck all those fucking muslim, arab, and iraq fuckers! They fucking killed an American, and yet our fucking government is trying to change regulations on how we treat Iraq prisoners! Fuck the Iraq prisoners we should cut all there fucking dicks off and let them bleed to death slowly and then send it to all those terrorist bastards showing them that America doesn't give a fuck about Iraq or terrorists. This is a fucking disgrace, and our dumb government is allowing all of this to happen. Bush needs to get his ass into gear and start making those bastards pay for all the American lives they've taken!

Pat/Ron:

Let's evacuate Iraq of all foreign forces, any women and children who want out and then drop a nuclear bomb on the rest! I have seen the video, it is heartbreaking, vile, pure evil! The Iragi's are not stepping in to stop these terrorists, it is always the Americans. Let's get out and drop a bomb!

What I saw was degrading, humiliating, it was like killing a pig. It is a crying shame that these people are worse than animals. What these dogs did, this happened in Vietnam, all they did was bring Vietnam back.

Scott:

Stop the bullshit, stop the groundwar and occupation. Pull out or troops and drop the big one. Give them some time to think it over... give them 48 hours to turm in the leaders responsible for these attacks and then nuke them again and again and again until their surrender or until they are no loger there to pose a threat. We can rebuild that place, and start by educating the survivors that they need to learn how to act in a civilized word and thank us for setting them free. No more of this anti-American bullshit. Do those assholes realize if it wasn't for us, they'd still be under the rule of a sadistic tyrant? We don't want their country, we want them to take care of themselve and let us get the hell out of there.

All of the Islamiteís that approve of this barbarism should have the same treatment and go straight to Hell to be tormented for all eternity! I for one would be glad to sent this bunch there myself.

John:

Thank God I live in a free society. It's unfortunate that all the money we have given the Middle East has not gone to provide for their people. You'd think they'd get it by now. It seems like a lost cause, the people will never understand freedom and democracy, or handle it without supervision, or be able to bury their religous ego long enough to understand multicultural human rights.

John
