Beheading 

A public fucking beheading. You've gotta be fucking kidding me. I have about as much faith in humanity right now as...there's nothing infintesimal enough to compare to.

One sick fucking stunt after another. One thing is certain. We can't expect Al-Qaida to be the good guys here. And we're not doing a very good job of being the good guys ourselves. If we want to win this "war," we HAVE TO BE THE GOOD GUYS!

We can't expect the people responsible for 9/11 to respond to our abuse in any way except how they did, with sick fucking sadism. But we can't use that sadism as an excuse for our own or we all lose.

You can "moral equivalence" me all you want, but tell that to the innocent guy we picked up and threw in Abu Ghraib and sodomized with a flashlight. You think he and his family are on our side now? Is that a heart and mind won? We have to rise above the filth we are fighting, and by that I DON'T mean the Iraqi people, I mean the people we should have been fighting the whole time we've been fucking around in Iraq wasting lives and money: the people who just cut off a man's head for a revenge video.

This goes on in his name on both sides of a fight and people still think there's a god. I pity the naivete...

UPDATE: On being the good guys, check out this post by Josh Marshall. Right on point...and big ups to Senators Graham, McCain, and Warner for reminding me that there are good, smart Republicans still around despite all the Inhofes, DeLays, Cheneys and Rumsfelds...
