Is NOTHING sacred to these lowlifes?

My God, just how low can these predators sink?

When the body of Kim Sun-il was found 35 km west of Baghdad toward Falluja at 5:20 p.m. (10:22 p.m. Korean time) on June 22, it was discovered that a booby trap had been installed in his body.

“A booby trap was placed in Kim’s body,” reported CNN, quoting Pentagon sources. A booby trap is an explosive device, which is designed to blow up on contact. It appears that Iraqi insurgents were hoping to kill coalition forces or rescuers recovering Kim’s body. Outrage at the brutality of a terrorist organization that abducted Kim exploded after people learned that Kim’s body had been booby-trapped.

I'm completely speechless. When you think they have committed the most heinous attrocity one can commit to a single human being, they sink even lower. And all in the name of their "god."
UPDATE: The video of Kim's beheading has started circulating: http://www.hostinganime.com/iraqnews2/ - As with the two prior cases (Berg & Johnson), the video is beyond brutal to watch; WATCH AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Truly truly evil.

Like someone said on FR, I hope the Koreans send in 10,000 troops (or more) because of this beheading.

Abu Graib, my ass.

There are some people in this world who do not believe that the U.S. will do anything due to our "pulling our punches" thus far. The time has come for this country to abandon all restraint and take a cue from the Afghan Military, who cut off the heads of some Taliban soldiers for cutting off the hands of an Afghan soldier. The longer we continue to sit on our hands and take the "high road", the longer this mess will go on. I may not be in your camp on all political issues, but this goes beyond that.

We are not purposly targeting children or any other innocents with the expressed intent to cause terror.
War is hell, shit happens.
Our enemy on the other hand is trying to make a spectacle of thier own brutallity to try and terrorize us.
If your morally equivelent ass can't fathom the difference, you sir are the "stupid sociopathic moron."

Sefton --

Perhaps, but when I get spammed, I take action. He wants to spam so damn bad, he can get his own blog. He ain't using mine for it.

Censorship, in this case, only sucks because I can't see what sefton was responding to.

So it's a mild irritant, unlike what I presume was a major irritant that got removed.
