    well, if cooking a guy alive doesn't piss you off, posting a video shouldn't either.

    It definitely is sensationalism. I was at work, and all the conservative, Fox News viewers were really pissed off after the news broke. They want to go to war. This video really upset them, and this man's death is being used to push a cause. I wonder, what do they really know about the young man and his life?

    I would guess, nothing.

    I don't watch the news much, but I watch enough to know this story was heavily covered and little to nothing was said out of respect for him or his memory. I read an article about him online, and I felt that was more important than remembering him by the video in OP. He was a newlywed. I think he married 6 months before flying on his mission. He always wanted to be a fighter pilot, and he was a devout Muslim. People said he committed large sections of the Quran to memory. His family and ancestral tribe was loyal to the monarch for centuries. He died fighting ISIS.

    I am so sad for him and his family. It is so tragic. I am glad the people of Jordan have rallied behind the family. The media could be doing a better job of covering the story without sensationalism.

    that's the only way to subvert this "fear and hysteria" you speak of ... to simply not report on any of these stories whatsoever.

    I mean, i have no problem with someone who choose not to watch it for whatever reason.. but choosing not to watch it is a far cry from not wanting it shown to anyone at all.... I don't find such censorship to be cool whatsoever.

    I've seen the video... i was no more pissed off after watching it than i was when i read it in print...such images don't really have too much of an effect on me... beheadings, war deaths, sniper kills, etc etc... no big deal to me
    oddly enough, i can't watch kids crash on bikes or skateboards , though... not sure why, but i hate those "fail" videos.... I've no clue why i'm weird that way
    It's all good, i understand where you are coming from. I'd just like to reiterate what i said in my first post. I'm clearly not suggesting that the stories aren't reported on at all.

    I absolutely support discussions relating to the threat that IS pose and the reporting and sharing of information associated with current events, everyone should be paying attention to what the current situation is, but i simply will not aid them by spreading their heinous propaganda and buoying their cause.
    I'm just not a fan of the victims being used as propoganda tools, which is clearly what IS is doing. No issues at all with their deaths being reported in MSM but it is completeley unnecessary to show full details of their executions. We already know IS is really, really bad, we don't need to see executions to convince us.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    are you going to now come out in opposition to even reporting on the story, or are you going to backtrack from this retarded comment?
    The only reason why Karl Rove showed the video is to gin up even more hatred toward Obama and Clinton with their audience, if that's possible.
    And yes, you already knew that.

    And using the word retarded is clearly non-Libertarian of you .

    well, as long as you aren't calling for censorship, it's all good with me....everyone should be free to make the choice for themselves.

    I'm not sure. This is different from us making public a legal execution (which I'm against). But I'm not sure.

    Then you are denying that Karl Rove decides what will be shown on FOX.
    And you are denying that there is a link to showing this video and FOX's 24/7 mantra of everything Obama has done wrong in the ME.
    While yer also denying the link to Clinton, who FOX refers to as the third term of Obama.

    I won't ask you if yer ok--that's yer thing to do ?

    Why are you defending using the word retard toward another poster in this forum?
    I stand by my comment that true Libertarians don't feel this way.

    And why in the world would you bring up my wife in any post anywhere on this forum?
    Let alone having my wife get me to a doctor because you've diagnosed me as "something is not right"--your words !
