Chop, Chop

The high cost of being a Bush supporter was driven home to Nick Berg a few days ago when, after one of a group of masked men who were presumably, not part of the President Jesus Bush fan club, read out a statement, they pushed Berg to the floor and shouted "God is greatest" above his screams as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a top ally of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden of them sawed his head off with a large knife then held it aloft for the camera.

Berg was a supporter of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and of Bush administration policy. Well done.

Gruesome? Psshaw. One dead, dumb American who voluntarily went to a war zone like Iraq to "find work" and because he wanted to lend support to Bush's idiotic policy of invasion and destruction. Now multiply it by tens of thousands of dead Iraqi civilians, killed as a result of the American invasion, people who didn't "volunteer" to live in the middle of a war zone but who had it brought to them to "save" them from the morally bankrupt leadership of Saddam Hussein and to give them puppet leaders of a morally bankrupt American government, and then maybe we can strike up the violins.

In case you haven't seen it and want to, the video, as well as stills and stories, are provided by Information Clearning House.

As Kurt Vonnegut notes in Cold Turkey:

"One of the few good things about modern times: If you die horribly on television, you will not have died in vain. You will have entertained us."


Save The Truth!

In an unrelated event, Stratford Upon Avon - The Truth announced it's last post on Wednesday.

"Owing to the never-ending search for spondolicks plus the nut-crunching pressure I’m experiencing from Mrs G and her iron fist in a velvet glove, I think the time has come to give my baby, ‘Stratford upon Avon – The Truth’ a much needed rest."

We hope this is a temporary aberration, a moment of frustration or temporary insanity, but if not, hurry and get a final look as the site will only be up for another week.
