Nick BergIt's like a nightmare. As we are still reeling from the sickening behavior of American troops guarding prisoners in Iraq. Nick Berg is brutally executed in front of a video camera. I am deeply saddened and disturbed by this event and my heart goes out to his family. Another act of brutality heaped upon more brutality in the region. When will it end? Some of you, like our misguided president, may argue that Iraq was way more violent before we showed up and that the Iraqi people are much better off today then they were before the invasion. I think your wrong. Going into Iraq just destabilized that part of the world even more and our actions, even before Abu Ghraib, just fanned the flames of hatred against us. We made things worse. Had we waited out Saddam and not rode into Iraq like the 7th Calvary maybe we might have had a chance. I just hope it's not another Little Big Horn in the making.
