We could firebomb them, kill everyone in their village when one of them turns to extremism, bomb their mosques, hell even mutilate their corpses and bury them in pig guts, and in the end we will be in the same situation the Soviets were in at the end of the 80s in Afghanistan. All we can do over there is contain them, prop-up brutal dictators that are somewhat friendly to the west and contain them, that is all we can do. This fiasco is the direct result of going into Iraq in the first place. Maybe in another thousand years or so they will catch up to the rest of the world.

    But the Soviets didn't hunt them.....not in the night, in the dark and when they fear most.

    There are suggestions that the executioner in the video (or at least the voiceover) had a British accent. A Westerner did this.

    Did anyone really expect anything better, a civil conversation perhaps? When will we learn that certain members of society can't be reasoned with?

    It is pointless to go after the terrorists themselves. They don't care about their own lives. We need to start eliminating the villages they come from. Yes, entire populations. It is not a matter of "sinking to their level", it is a matter of extermination of a dangerous parasite. The message needs to be clear: This ideology will not be tolerated by the rest of the world. Killing a few men in masks will not make it stop. They need to be allowed to see their entire families wiped from the earth. Of course the pacifists will claim it is over reaction, possible throw in a right wing war monger comment or two, possibly even declare it a religious war. It is none of these things. It is eradicating a disease that is not affected by reason.

    I am assuming you are being tongue-in-cheek with that. The Soviets were as brutal as you could get.

    I didn't say they(Soviets) weren't brutal.....I said they didn't hunt them in the night, in the dark.

    So they really never tried to make their enemy fear their worst.

    Right... I am sure that the Soviets only fought them during the daylight hours. At the end of daylight savings time the Islamists could sleep in an hour knowing they were safe in their beds until sunup....

    Sure, just go back to Old Testament tactics. That is why there was so much peace in the world back then....

    The problem is going in there in the first place. Had we left the dictator Saddam in power, he would still be contained and none of this would have ever happened.

    That really makes us no better than them if we were to allow that to happen and it will only spark more anger against us, needing then to kill more families and innocent people. Call me a pacifist all you want but atleast I don't sink to their level.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
