I have not watched the whole video because I don't want to experience what you are going through right now. The description of the video was plenty enough for me. I've had too much human brutaility for one lifetime.<p> Yes, it is in their culture. Nicholas Berg was Jewish. It's perfectly acceptable to radical Muslims to kill Jews by any means necessary. Because Mr Berg was Jewish, he felt it impairative that he help other, especially Muslims.<p>

I know how you feel, I watched it as well. And I went through the same exact emotional response. I don't think I've ever watched something that affected me so profoundly. Just like you I thought of just bombing the lot of them and starting fresh. It's been two days since I've watched it and I've calmed down a little. It's good to talk about it because those are the kind of emotions that, if left festering, lead to the brutal acts we witnessed. This whole world needs to change. Warring with the terrorists, it seems, has only bred more terror. I wish I knew the easy answer, but as we all know there is none. But Kevin don't let it overwhelm you, I think your signature says it all.

Kevin, I didn't watch it and don't want to but I think that your reaction is really important. You have an outlet and you have been trained to harness feelings of anger, or to find ways to express them, for people who have not been taught differently and may have seen their parents or children brutalized they will react with all that anger in equally destructive ways, and the cycle just continues for generations and generations. That is what has to change, it won't happen overnight but we have to keep trying to offer compassion and expressions of love, showing these young people who have been victims of war that there is another way, may help to stop the cycle. One person at a time... :cry:
