Margaret Hassan murdered by AQ in Iraq

A video released today shows the murder of CARE worker Margaret Hassan in Iraq.

The Irish family of aid worker Margaret Hassan taken hostage in Iraq have said they believe she is dead.

Their statement followed reports in Iraq of a video reportedly showing her murder.

Hassan was kidnapped by AQ-affiliated terrorists more than a month ago. She subsequently appeared in several videotaped messages pleading for the British government to acquiese to the monsters' demands to withdraw their troops in exchange for her life.

Downing Street did not, and does not, as a matter of policy, negotiate with terrorists.

The body of a blond-haired woman was found on the streets of Fallujah by US Marines engaged in battle there. It is widely thought that the body is that of Hassan, but no confirmation has been made as of the present.

Margaret Hassan had brownish hair. There was a blonde Polish woman in her 50's who was kidnapped as well. Most likely its her body.

No shock really is it. Two things: Mad men who won't allow democracy to prevail in their country because it's not in their interests. The other thing is the portrayal of US troops murdering "innocent" Iraqi injured men.

My first reaction was, typical US army... they have been seen torturing, abusing etc. My thought afterwards was, "what if the man pretending to be asleep had actually pulled a gun or blown up himself?"

But these two things only make the situation worse. And I don't know the answer. I don't think we can leave the Iraqi people to their own devices, most of them will want peace, question is... Can the US deliver? Do they have the skills needed? It's more than just blowing people's heads of, even though, sadly that probably has to happen.

No getting away from it though, there's some really sick people in Iraq and it's a Muslim thing to them but that is not how we see it here in England.

Uh... Yeah.

Let's be clear on one thing. We have no idea who is killing these people. Ask yourself this: Why in the world would a fanatical terrorist leader need to cover his face? We obviously know that it is him, right, so why bother with the charade? You people make me laugh. You watch the news and believe what the networks tell you despite the fact that you'd never heard of these supposed perpetrators until recently, can't speak "their" language, and even if you had and could, couldn't know for sure that the audio matched the video in the cases where the murders were taped. Afterall, their mouths are covered, remember? Get your heads out of your collective asses sheeple.

Yeah, right. After all, these guys are just people of peace. The arab world hasn't produced any people or done anything that should give us the impression that they might have tendencies toward violence. All of those suicide bombers are just jews or American CIA agents pretending to be arabs. The 9/11 hijackers were just agents hired by the Bush administration to stir up hatred against the innocent arab world. The takeover of the elementary school in Chechia was by American CIA agents pretending to be arabs. Of course its all America's evil doings with the assist of Isreal......Yeah, right. You need to pull your head out of Arafat's ass 'Wake Up'.
