They also have TV ads that I have seen on the Fox News Channel. I have to say that it is slick marketing. It presents the "facts" in a context that is hard to be against (as if Jesus is telling us all personally to join the Sierra Club). I would like to see some talk show hosts address who is behind it and expose their agenda.
Hugging is good - but beheading is baaaaaaaaaad, mmmmkay?
Joking aside, when are these people going to get it?
Anyway, prayers for a lost soul. Tom's last moments really must have been bad, but he lived like he wanted to and everyone sees the result. His murder ultimately re-justifies our presence in Iraq.
I read this morning somewhere that his hands were tied behind him and he had been shot in the head. There was evidence of torture by electric cables (beaten by them it was thought).
And here's a link to the site of the delusional leftist organization he belonged to. Interesting reading.
PROFOUND words of WISDOM!
A TREMENDOUS ADDITION TO THIS THREAD!
THANK YOU for sharing that!
I don't know. Someone put that photo on the song thread I did for the human shield adventure.
Good point, and maybe it is time to unleash the nukes of war on Iran and the rest of the muskie enclaves.
As I See It,
Prayers for his family,Guess Rush was wrong on this one.

Nothing changed except our regards for the graciousness of his captors. Will anyone learn?
"Read the link I provide about his sponsor (or cover) organization. He was no friend of America, our troops or our way of life. His citizenship seems to have been by fortune of birth and nothing more - as it is for all travelers."
To be honest I don't care. Having the wrong political ideas doesn't warrent a violent death at the hands of muslim radicals. My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Mr. Fox.
"Christian Peacemaker Teams had been working in Iraq since October 2002"
Oddly enough, we didn't invade Iraq until Spring 2003.
Quite frankly, given our forces track record of finding these hostages, I have begun to simply believe them dead once they are taken. It's not a knock against our men and women in uniform, they are simply not trained to find the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When will we learn, let's use some airpower and decimate them...?
The Presbyterian Church USA is trying to get people to divest from Isreal in protest of the wall. These liberal denominations are naively dangerous.
The terrorists haven't won anything .. in fact this treatment of an American will just solidify our troops even more. The terrorist's action prove they cannot be dealth with except TO KILL THEM before THEY KILL US.
I was responding to a knee-jerk, "nuke 'em all"-type reaction that has since been deleted by a Mod.
As far as I can tell, Mr. Fox went over there as a war prostester...to encourage "the resistance"....basically to help the enemy and further undermine our WOT. The "resistance" killed him anyway. This tells me, maybe not everyone else, that the terrorists are out to kill infidels and the infidels politics do not matter.
It could have just been a misunderstanding, however, and miscommunication due to the language barrier....heh heh heh
But terrorists neither fear nor respect the defeatists and deluded peacenik leftists who seek to mollify and "understand" them. For them they have nothing but contempt.
