You know, the last Iraq war didn't see anyone burned at the stake or even fired, really, over here. Strangely, both the Pashtun nationalist movement that may or may not be properly called 'Taliban' and the current set of enemies du jour in Iraq benefited from US funds/arms. If we're stuck enjoying the police state 'necessitated' by the new toys sold to it, it really should be executing about one traitor a week. ...starting in Feith's old office... Glorious 1937 again!
Demand your Bread and Circuses... ...wisely.
Another neat trick for those potentially not about to defend themselves is to be certain to park with the cam facing elsewhere. And, for the sake of audio and riling up fellow officers, keep asking the non-defender ~'why are you' questions.

The hand wringing over the ~'apparent' beheadings is a bit much. Surely the high thugs can critique them for other things...their poor singing voices, for example.
Active Duty last year protested that they didn't join to fight for AQ... What could possibly have changed?
Where could one confirm the fact of an 'Assad Dynasty' extent for a millennium or so? My impression was that surnames were a pretty recent thing in the region?

Jeffrey Carr, founder and CEO of Taia Global Inc., discusses why information security (InfoSec) companies are quick to blame China – often with little evidence – for hacking/espionage operations; Mandiant’s weak case against Chinese hacker group “A.P.T. Number 12″ for infiltrating the New York Times; and why critical thinking leads to the truth more often than the “gut feelings” of experts.
