Twisted Savages

leave a comment »

The savages have struck again, and beheaded another American – Paul Johnson.

My sympathies to Mr. Johnson’s family, as to those of Nick Berg, and Daniel Pearl.

The savages claim this is in retribution for the abuse at Abu Ghraib – they seem brutishly unclear on the concept (panties on the head, beheading, just a difference of degree).  Well, I don’t buy it and somehow I doubt Mrs. Pearl does either.  The real truth is the savages are fighting to win using tactics their twisted logic tells them work.  After all, their own bloodthirsty rulers are constantly terrorizing and beheading.

It won’t work.  For them, scorn and defiance.  Paul Johnson’s sacrifice does not terrorize.  It stiffens our moral resolve that this plague of terrorism will be eradicated.  The current objective appears to be the de-stabilization and seizure of Saudi Arabia.  I guess they haven’t been paying attention to current events – Afghanistan, Iraq – we’re not engaged in surrendering large swathes of territory to the savages.  We’re taking it away and returning it to civilization.

Oh, and for the anti-war apologists for savages: sleep well tonight. Although I don’t know how you can.

Update

Justice was swift for this savage. President Bush had this to say about the murder of Paul Johnson:

“The execution shows the evil nature of the enemy we face. They’re trying to get us to retreat from the world.  America will not retreat. America will not be intimidated by these kinds of extremist thugs. May God bless Paul Johnson.”
