The Nick Berg Video

It appears that the Nick Berg video is making its way across the internet, and the heavily interlinked nature of the blogosphere is driving google traffic the blogosphere's way.

WARIRA771LR.jpgOne of the things few people are commenting on is how the unsurpassed level of media technology is affecting warfare. We saw live battles at all times of day and night during the initial heavy-combat phase of the war. My most vivid memory of that phase was Bob Arnot's live narration of a firefight in which he pulled a civilian family into a foxhole.

What happens when media footage that was once only available to elites, military personnel, and politicians becomes widely available to the everyday joe at the click of a mouse? Does it affect the likeliness of war or peace?

I don't know the answer to that, but I can't see it being a negative. People tend to fight when they see the world as a fixed sum-game. People tend to cooperate when they see the mutual benefits of cooperation. Perhaps the small positive from the disguisting images of Abu Gharib and the proliferation of the Nick Berg video on the internet is that the world sees the awesome gruesomeness of war, and perhaps marginally shows it the benefits of cooperation and peace.

Update: We do not have the video. You can try some of the links above .

This video is just proof to

This video is just proof to leave the middle east. I dont care to see it, nor would ever view if possible. But through the tragic comes the horrify sorry of war. Yet another reason to say to hell with iraq.

To Tony on May 16th post. I

To Tony on May 16th post. I resent your post and I am one well-educated liberal Korean Vet that has patriotism, honor, pride and responsibility to duty and I can express myself without the gutter language that you used - maybe typical marine? Iraq was never, is not presently and will never be a threat to this country. We have no business being there and unless people get off their lazy butts and get this Bush gang out of office, this country will never survive.

me gustaria tener una copia

me gustaria tener una copia del video del decapitacion de nick berg
muchas gracias

you know people you worry

you know people you worry about george bush well when we do get this weak liberal in office you people feel like the next terrorist attack over here will probebly kill more then a couple thousand of us so now we take it to um in afganistan an iraq an all this winning liberal bullshit hmmm you no homeland security is scrambling to save our ass and all you hear is all the winning.I saw jessie jackson on CNN the other day and one of or former Generals listens to him wail and throw shots at our own Government.When the General told him he did not have a clue to whats going on Ole Jessie sat back an shut up hmmm ,I thought now thats a first.

I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE

I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE THE VIDEO
OF NICK BERG. $$$$$$$$$$ TO THE ONE
WHO EMAILS THE VIDEO TO ME.

This is the first chance I

This is the first chance I have to use a american computer. I am afraid of what America can do, but I have not been mistreated....yet.

I would just like to say a

I would just like to say a couple things. Islam is not a violent religion, what is a violent religion is Islamic Fundamentalism. Not all Muslims are the same there are different types of Muslims. I also want to say to the people that think that we have no business being in Iraq, if we don't have any business being there then why is it we had any business being in Europe during World War II??? Germany didn't attack us Japan did, so why were we there? Could it be that the people of Europe were at the whim of a fascist dictator who not only oppressed his own people but the people of other countries. I don't give two shits if bush wasn't telling the whole truth about WMDs, if there is a leader of a country who is killing his own people for no reason then he shouldn't be in power. The 10th anniversary of the Rwanda mass killings just took place and you know what happened? Bill Clinton and Kofi Annan just said "I'm sorry this happened...We should've done something." FUCK THAT! For all of you who complain about the US try living in an Eastern Bloc country under Soviet Rule,try living in a country where you are run over by a tank for protesting, or try living in a country where you are killed by the thousands because you have different beliefs from the ruler of that country. Maybe then you will know that some people have been through.

ALL I SAY IS THAT, AS LONG

ALL I SAY IS THAT, AS LONG AS A REPUBLICAN IS IN WASHINGTON AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, DONT EXPECT MORE, BUT A WAR...look at the records of presidency and you will see!.
Two wars already under the BUSH Presidency (1993 IRAQ,KUWAIT, SOMALIA) and (2003 IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN).

ENOUGH OF THIS! ALREADY! NO MORE WARS PLEASE!

To those of you who have

To those of you who have asked to have the Nick Berg Video emailed to you, most of you can never recieve it because the video is larger than your mail server will allow. While others have received their copy via email from me.

No thanks necessary, I just want to show our real enemy (and its not President Bush) and what they plan to do to everyone who is not Muslim.

I have copies of this burned on a CD.

Look for it on Ebay...

Send me the video.Av been

Send me the video.Av been searching for it in many search engines but couldnt find it.

I would like to see the

I would like to see the video, I think all americans would feel better as why our military are protecting us in fighting this war.

It was the one of the most

It was the one of the most shocking news that
i ever heard in my life about Nick Berg's death..
and i was wondering why this young, innocent american had to die? and i was searching for the
answers...and here i am.....................,
As i saw some of the comments that have been posted in here....I could say that some of you
have no respects for a dead man,Nick Berg...,
you should respect his death and innocent soul
in heaven..,i have not seen the video because
i am scared of watching it and because you
should respect his brave death....either the guy
was on the video was Nick Berg or no...the fact
is he was killed by some animals...you should take
it as a lesson and a sign that you should not fight anymore,you are fighting for nothing......,
these animals who took his soul deserve the same,
and Nick Berg was a young,innocent great man as
i saw what they say in an articles who gave up his
soul away for all americans and all the human beings in the world...i am not an american citizen nor Iraqi,but i pray for all innocent people that wants a peace back in the world...
i pray for Nick Berg who sleeps in peace......,
he is an american hero forever..............

All compassions go to nick

All compassions go to nick and his very terrify death. So many conspiricy theorist out here, and no one was there to actually prove what happened. Could just be a proganda effort to place blam on the US, one way to prove a point by other countries whom are scared of freedom. And what of those whom serve there now, my friends and family? Rather should thoughts return to there well being and safe return from this F.U.B.A.R mess of the middle east. But I you did not serve, refuse to, or wish to ignore the facts of what is happening then it is time for a wake up call. Anyone whom is not Islamic is the enemy, thaught by the guy on the loud speaker at the Mosk. This is the way of the land, and no others have any say for it is sack religious to listen to believes from no muslims. May we all indure this with quickness and justice of those whom commit crimes against others (Both sides of the mirror.)

I want to see the video.

I want to see the video.

I say this to all who read

I say this to all who read this page war is not the answer to peace. A innocent man died trying to make a buck and help rebuild a Country. We are all hurt by what we seen but less not point the blame at each other. This is war and not peace and now its in our home thanks to technology, never seen before in history, but do to technology now we see how ugly it can be.

In reply to Ray Ray, if you

In reply to Ray Ray, if you were struck on the nose would you defend yourself??? If you knew without a doubt you could prevent the death of those who died in the World Trade Center by the death of the 17 muslims, would you kill them?

I know I would...

It is through war that frees us from tyrants, despots and dictators. It was a was that started this county, it was though war that Mexico was freed of the French (May 5th) and the Spaniards(Sept 16th), for it was through war that the French gained their freedom as well. So, war can be the answer!!!

And one further note, it was a war that ended slavery!!!

We are at war for our boarders, langauge and culture for without these we have no nation.

The next time you are punched in the nose, don't strike back as see how quickly you win your conflict through peace.

OBITUARY Today we mourn the

OBITUARY

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend by the name of Common Sense who has been with us for many years.

No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such value lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm and that life isn't always fair.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not kids, are in charge).

His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place.

Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student; but, could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and
wanted to have an abortion.

Finally, Common sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot, she spilled a bit in her lap, and was awarded a huge settlement

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason He is survived by two stepbrothers; My Rights and Ima Whiner.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

The Nick Berg is phony. Here is a link to a site that breaks it down frame by frame. Any skeptics should rally see this.

Se eu fosse presidente dos

Se eu fosse presidente dos EUA, retiraria minhas tropas do Iraque para que n?o repetisse o Vietn? e n?o provocasse ainda mais a ira do povo iraquiano, sendo que o mesmo j? alimenta um ?dio que vai durar durante muitos anos contra os americanos e que poder? resultar em mais e mais atentados ao povo americano e o de seus aliados. Deveriam os americanos espelharem-se no Brasil, um pa?s que apesar de toda a pobreza e dificuldades enfrentadas, ? um povo alegre, feliz, trabalhador e que respeita cren?as, religi?es e ra?as diferentes dentro de um conv?vio social. Um pa?s que ? avesso a qualquer tipo de guerra, n?o por n?o possuir um arsenal que pudesse realmente resguardar a sua soberania em um guerra contra outros pa?ses, mas sim porque faz parte de sua ?ndole pac?fica. Ambos s?o culpados dessas atrocidades cometidas durante a ocupa??o do Iraque, os americanos e os iraquianos adeptos de Sadan Hussein.

What is Gustauo trying to say??? Reguardless if the nick berg video is a phony or actual, its a bad effort of proganda by the iraq militants whom are killing those whom wish to help. And now time to see how to resolve and go home. PIL SUNG

In reply to Ben, I'm sure

In reply to Ben, I'm sure Nick's dad and family is glad to hear that his murder was staged and a hoax...This will be really comforting to know that Nick Berg is really alive and well somewhere in Iraq.

For you information, 14 of the 15 major conflicts going on today are Muslim vs. their neighbor. For their mission is clear, you must either convert or be killed there is no middle ground or compromise in their mind. Do you still believe that they are a religion of peace?

Please e-mail me the video

Please e-mail me the video for nick berg...
good viedo thanks

Vincent Jankowski, you are

Vincent Jankowski, you are an ignorant bastard. Was that language really necessary? You can't even spell properly, I'd suggest you refrain from making ignorant comments, especially if you can't use proper English. Calling them "niggers"? At least use the correct derogatory racial slur, you fucking shithead!

I would really like to see

I would really like to see the video of Nick Bergs horrible death. If someone could please email it to me, if they have it. Thank You
a very concerned person.

First of all I did see the

First of all I did see the video and it was the most disturbing thing I have ever seen. I don't think I will ever be able to get his screams out of my head. I have nightmares about it. Second not one of you knows why Bush is fighting now or who is really at fault and who isn't. Every one of you is entitled to your opinions and it seems pretty ignorant to tell someone they are wrong and you are right because you know or understand more.

My prayers go out to all the soldiers and the Berg family. Someone should have done something about this way before 9/11 and maybe this blog and these problems wouldn't be happening...maybe it would not be so out of control. Who knows...no one did anything and here we are. That's life in the Big Tee Pee

i would just like to say it

i would just like to say it was sooooooo wrong for what these sick stupid arabs did.I have only heard about the video and would like to see it for myself if possible.so if it can please be emailed to me that would be great..thanx

I don't know if any of you

I don't know if any of you noticed, but Nick Berg's own father said war is not the answer. How can anyone on this site honestly say that after the way the abu gharib prisoners were treated we shouldn't have expected any retaliation from any terrorist organizations.

I read a post further up on this site that exclaimed:

?OH ITS FAKE BECAUSE THE LEADER WAS WEARING A GOLD RING WHICH IS AGAINST ISLAMIC RELIGION??.HE?S A FRIGGAN RADICAL. IN SHORT THEY?RE REBELS. SINCE WHEN DO REBELS DO WHAT THEIR TOLD?"

Radicals are NOT rebels, they are extremists of their beliefs, therefore wearing gold would entirely contradict their beliefs.

Also what is up with this generalization of arab nations, people are expressing their opinions on the war and they instantly jump to such descriptions of the people such as "monkey nigger" or "towel heads" ?

I guess no one takes into consideration that the U.S. should expect at least one death thats broadcasted all over television and the internet when they invade another country, bomb it to hell and call it liberation.

To add to the glory of America's part in this farce of a war, Bush is pulling out.

CNN reports that Iraq has a new president in collaboration with the U.S.. The new president is an AMERICAN, does it not seem odd to anyone that the president orginally chosen for Iraq was actually Iraqi? He was later assasinated, that was what brought on the switch.

Instead of jumping to racist remarks on Arab culture, do some research, read up a bit, and don't believe every single thing the media is telling you.

The media gives you news you want not news you need, and watchdog media doesn't exist anymore, so its your job to find these things out before you go and make false accusations based not on fact but mere opinions.

the video hurts, it makes me

the video hurts, it makes me proud we have people fighting those bastards, this video has completely changed my look towards the arabs.
If u do see the video, be ready for the gore.
im proud to be an American.

LOOK ON CONSUMPTION JUNCTION

LOOK ON CONSUMPTION JUNCTION VIDEOS ABOUT 6 PAGES DOWN, AND ABOUT 6 DOWN FROM THE TOP OF THE PAGE RAW AND HARDCORE IS THE HEADLINE THEN IN FINE PRINT TO THE RIGHT IT SAYS MUSLIMS DECAPITATE AN AMERICAN CLICK ON IT AND ULL SEE IT ITS A FU**ED UP WAY TO DIE. THE VIDEO IS NOT SO GREAT THE WAY IT WAS DOWNLOADED ITS A BIT SLOW AND OFF BY SOUND BUT ULL GET THE WHOLE THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I see a lot of people

I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan.

1. The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo, Noriega, Milosovich and the rest of those good ol' boys: We will never "interfere" again.

2. We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany, South Korea and the Philippines. They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one sneaking through holes in the fence.

3. All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of who or where they are. France would welcome them.

4. All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit. No one from a terrorist nation would be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5. No "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" (for "deport") and it's back home baby.

6. The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing non-polluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while.

7. Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go some place else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)

8. If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides, most of what we give them is stolen or given to the Army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.

9. Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island some place. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

10. All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer. The language we speak is ENGLISH.....learn it...or LEAVE...

Now, ain't that a winner of a plan..
The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying "Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses." She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, "You want a piece of me?"

buddy, pax americana, thats

buddy, pax americana, thats all this war is.

anyways why does this video

anyways why does this video change a person's look on all arabs, its disgusting that someone could go and make such a generalization on such a large mass of people. Not every single person of a middle eastern ethnicity is an extremist who wants to kill american soldiers.

If something like this video causes you to tell everyone that all arabs are bastards or "monkey niggers" then you were racist towards them for no reason before you even saw it.

also... geeze. what is up

also... geeze.

what is up with people saying that arabs shouldn't come to America and things such as that, when in reality America was first made up of aboriginals, so if you go back far enough, none of you belong there either (of course except for the aborignals)

and the language they spoke wasn't english, english was forced on them, a society they didn't want was forced on them, their land was taken away and now the U.S. is doing the exact same thing.

Bush is nothing but an oil tycoon.

In response to John, There

In response to John, There are fifteen (15) major conflicts in the world as we converse about the horrible death of Nick Berg. Fourteen (14) of these wars involve Muslims and their neighbor. How is that for a ?Religion of Peace???? All this video did was wake up a lot of people as to who Muslims really are and what they are all about. For its founder was a warrior not a victim!!! Please check the history books? Mohammad captures Mecca, Spain Under the Moors, Arabs conquer Jerusalem, Arabs conquer Cyprus and where were you when the Persians stormed Normandy?
Call them Moors, Persians, or Arabs, their religion is Muslim and they are out to convert you or kill you. Nick Berg, Daniel Pearl, and countless thousands (if not millions) have fallen to their blades.

How can you live in peace when they are out to kill you???

One futher note to

One futher note to John...Aboriginals live in Australia...

okay. I suppose this is what

okay. I suppose this is what america has come down to. Instead of watching an american boy get beheaded why dont we find those f'en pricks who did it? Think about your mother... if she died a horrible way would you wanrt to bear that it was ciculating all over the damn internet. so i hope you feel ashamed of yourselfs... im 17 years oild and i know the difference between human and in humane

one note to paul, aboriginal

one note to paul, aboriginal simply means that they were the first there, they're native indians.

the aboriginals in austrailia are australians, but most austrailians you see today migrated from britan and they're white, so, in reality white people have no more of a place in the u.s. than arabs, blacks, hispanic or any other ethnicity excluding the native indians.

oh, and paul, i'm iranian,

oh, and paul, i'm iranian, and i'm not out to kill anyone, i'm muslim and i'm not out to kill anyone.

If you look at the root of the muslim religion, otherwise known as zorastrian, there are only 3 simple rules, do good, act good, and be good.

really simple, the only reason people are beliving that muslims want to kill americans is because the context of the religion has been blown out of preportion, the same could be done to the bible or any other holy book.

Anyways, I had relatives in the wtcs who were killed but war is not the answer.

i'de say the simplest

i'de say the simplest explanation for everything thats happening right now is that we're entering an orwellian society.

Anyways, I guess white

Anyways, I guess white europeans taking away all the land of the natives and making them slaves isn't considered "Conquering"

???

Tell me how you would feel, if you were standing on the street watching your daughter playing in the front yard, and then seeing a big slab of cement take her arm off.

Are you saying that all those little muslim kids are out to get you too? All those old muslim women, all those muslim moms, and muslim dads all want to kill?

It has nothing to do with religion man, some people in this world are sick and just because they pronounce themselves as saviors doesn't mean they represent all of us.

please send me a copy of the

please send me a copy of the nick berg video!

Looks like whoever made the

Looks like whoever made the video got the desired result, at least in a lot of the American sheeple. Blow up the fuckers, you shout! Kill Islam! Nuke the place! (Sigh, deep deep sigh, what would Jesus do?)

Seriously, doesn't anyone take critical thinking classes anymore?

You can't believe everything that is presented to you. When you take things like the Berg beheading video at "face value" (sorry for the ugly pun here) you are lining up to let yourself be manipulated.

Who benefits from this?

Take what you see and hear (yes, from all sources, but especially "official" sources in the government, and the major media) with a bit of skepticism. Otherwise you are deserving of what you'll get -- which won't be liberty and freedom.

We have nothing to lose by shedding our naivete, our obliviousness, our ignorance.

We have a great deal to lose if we remain as sheeple.
