    I guess, in the end my original comment said this was expected. Not that I wanted him to die or anything. It's all in vain, the ME was a ****hole, is a ****hole, and will always be a ****hole so long as the plague of humanity called Islam still exists.

    You are wrong. This is about trying to shock people...to create so much horror that they will insist their governments withdraw completely. It is the CORE and FOUNDATION of TERRORism. they EXPECT people to not have the stomach for the fight. The perptrators arent shocked. They arent horrified. To them, this is a great and glorious cause.

    Do you have access to Google? If so...select 'Images' and look up "ISIS beheading children" if you want to see your enemy. Look at what they find noble and glorious. It will help you to understand just how sanitary and clean and strictly for public relations these beheadings of journalists and aid workers have been. They are COUNTING on idiots to blame this act on the presidents and premiers and prim ministers. They are counting on shock and horror and media cries for withdrawal. They are counting on people claiming "its all our own fault".

    This isnt unique. We literally picked up the pieces after Saddams troops went into Kuwait and that was a state military.

    It helps if you know who you are dealing with.

    Kind of a silly statement you just made. Not every aid worker is dying, many are saving lives and making a difference.

    In the ME? In the heart of ISIS?

    How much is many?

    How many lives are saved in this warzone?

    How many are saved temporarily just to die later?

    They are trying to provoke the western world (specifically us) into over responding. ISIS is a horrible, brutal, and sadistic group. They are not the only one. Latin American drug gangs like Los Zetas have beheaded far more rivals than ISIS has. Hell nuns have been murdered in South America for trying to save the rainforest. The world has a lot of depraved groups in it, we can't be drawn into a war every time one of them tries to provoke us.

    You quantify heroism based on the quality of life? What is YOURS worth? Should rescue personnel assess that before they decide to help you, heaven forbid you need it?

    The Latin cartels continue to grow and expand now into the US because people continue to allow them to. Brilliant maneuver, that whole ignore them and hoping they will go away tactic. Makes it difficult to breath what with sand in your nostrils and all.

    I wish we had the intellingence to hit them from an unconventional method that they have never even thought of.
    They're trying to draw us all in for some reason. My guess is some kind of religious revelation is telling them to do that to have the mother of all battles where they will beat or drain the west.
