    It's one thing to see a still picture of a militant next to a civilian with a blerb about ISIS demands and then the talking head goes on about how it's the other political party's fault and you should vote for his guy. It's quite another to remove all the media commentary completely, see the interaction between the militant and the civilian, hear thew civilian's last words, and then hear the civilian's screams of pain and see their blood and watch them die. The murdered person becomes real me. He's not a picture and blerb and a shameless political plug followed by a commercial brake full of products you need to buy or you won't get that rase and that girl won't **** you and you'll be fat and miserable and alone call now operators are standing by.......he's a real human being.

    And now he's dead.

    And I watched him die.

    That makes the whole ISIS thing real to me, it makes me care, it makes me want to care on a basic human level, not a political bias level.

    So you use such videos to feed your emotional response, and this helps your intellectual understanding how?

    It's about feeling a connection to another human being.

    I have no desire to see another human lose their life.

    I am not interested in watching a vicious, disgusting murder. What I AM interested in is finishing jihadism for good, starting with the creatures in this movement. If people in cities that are harboring these savages--Raqqah, Mosul, Fallujah, or anyplace else--do not turn them out or kill them themselves, they are aiding war criminals and should be considered sympathetic to them.

    Re: Beheadings: View or Ignore?

    I've viewed a couple of them and to say they are disturbing is a understatement. The first one I seen actually stuck with me and " bothered" me for damn near a week! The reason I've actually viewed these horrific acts is to look at pure evil and to solidify my hatred for it! I truly believe anyone over the age of 14yrs old should have to view this evil so they fully understand what civilization is up against. And I will say this, anyone who says they are pro-choice I challenge you to watch an abortion video, you will not, I repeat you will not be the same after you view it.

    I have no interest whatsoever in watching a beheading. Why would I?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Blog me! YouTube me! VidMe me!

    Re: Beheadings: View or Ignore?

    The war and media has left me a bit desensitized on gore. I can watch beheadings with the intent to critically evaluate whether it is true.

    I do not like what I see, but I dislike lies even more. I have not been able to watch the proceeding of US civilian beheading from start to finish in these 2 last occasions. The latest one that I saw was an ISIS Iraqi captive being beheaded while held from about 10 men. The captive had completely submitted to death while watching the camera.

    Re: Beheadings: View or Ignore?

    I agree with the link. I'm not giving these websites hits and encouraging them to smear this trash around the next time it happens.

    I don't need to see someone's frickin' head get cut off. I've seen enough crap in my life and I don't need to be any more blunted than I am. That is not entertainment. I don't need to see a naked actress without her consent. If I want to see a female body, well, that's pretty easy for me to sort out, isn't it, and I don't have to violate anyone's privacy to do it.

    Re: Beheadings: View or Ignore?

    Would anyone here want the world or their family see them die in a gruesome way? That stuff sticks with you and never goes away. I haven't watched it and don't plan on it. I don't need to watch someone be murdered to make myself believe murder exists.
