    Not that anyone really cares, except insofar as they might be able to use this to condemn Bush... Heaven knows Michael Moore is much more important than some contractor.

    Yes, that was sarcasm.

    Sorry, I am very angry right now.

    My prayers are with his family.

    One thing is certain with this latest murder of the Amer.

    clearly, the terrorist do not fear G.W. Bush or they would not have

    beheaded this second American. I am sure the terrorists want

    G.W. to get 4 more years.......they have been very sucessful

    with him at the helm of state and they don't want to change

    their good luck. Bush and company have very poor judgement

    and this loss is yet another example of this.

    The only thing that could possibly be worse than another American hostage being beheaded would be to learn that an Iraqi prisoner was forced to wear a dog collar, or was otherwise humiliated. No, I'm guessing that Paul Johnson will be no more of a blip on the media's radar screen that Nick Berg was.

    Seems fair to me. We don't hear ANYTHING about most of the Iraqis who are shot up. It's lousy luck for Johnson, of course, but if you sow the wind...

    I did say "anyone", not "Dems".

    And I think PalmHarborTchr'r response supports my thesis.

    Which was? (Sorry, I didn't pick up on any "thesis" here, just a distasteful implication.)

    Well, you are wrong about a blip on the radar as CNN, FoxHole News et
    al are covering this big time. Keep in mind that the Saudi govt. does
    beheadings every Friday morning and has done this for years. To these
    guys beheadings are standard operating proceedure. Clearly they are
    not afraid of Bush and Chaney...not one bit. There is a 30% unemployment
    rate in Saudi Arabia...they should have been training their own people
    to maintain helos, oil rigs etc instead of importing labor from the US,
    India, England etc.

    How come the Nick Berg beheading video was not shown as prominently as the AbuGharib prison photos?

    The only reason the media's radar screen blipped for a beheading was because Daniel Pearl was one of them.

    Prayers for the family of Paul Johnson. :(

    May the murderers of Paul Johnson get to meet Allah, post haste. :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Maybe, if their own people can maintain helos, oil rigs, etc, more economically than importing labor from abroad, they would have done so by now.

    Local labor is almost always, Ivory-99.9%, cheaper than labor that you had to import. But its not 'cheap' if you are not getting the results that you expect.

    Good point? The Saudi beheadings are done by government after the condemned has been convicted. In these cases, the beheadings are done against criminals.

    What was Paul Johnson convicted of?

    politics aside, you're talking about still photos (and not all of them, only the more tame ones) vs. a video of a beheading. there is a difference.

    Once again, it's all about the pictures.

    Where is the "sigh face"? We need a "sigh face."

    Being an infidel, defiling the land of the two shrines, aiding and abetting other infidels in despoiling Muslim lands of their resources - you name it.

    Better than who?
    Justice for Paul Johnson indicates that these murderers should get their just punishment.
    Worm food is a good start.

    Bush forgot

    Just saw Bush talk about the beheading on FoxHole News..........Bush

    got the guy's name wrong and only used a first name. This guy can't

    do the most simple things like remembering a victim's name.

    Four more years of this dummy???? :eek:

    murder, murder, murder. Killing someone for killing someone is revenge, not justice. It makes you just as bad as the person was for the original murder.

    Did you even bother to watch the video?
    Bush clearly called him "Paul Johnson".
    This is a place for facts, and not lies.

    I don't even understand how this is a political issue. There are groups of radical thugs out there that want to murder both you and me, and all you can do is use Paul's murder as a reason to condem Bush...
