UCSD student gets OK to air beheading video on campus today
UCSD student gets OK to air beheading video on campus today

A University of California San Diego sophomore has received approval by the school to show a video of the controversial beheading of American civilian Nicholas Berg this afternoon on campus.

Ariel Mor, a 20-year-old studying political science, says he views his event as "pro-American" and hopes it will increase support for American troops.

"This just shows what kind of enemy we're dealing with," Mor said. "We can't fight an enemy without the support of the American people."

Mor is planning to show the eight-minute video repeatedly on two 25-inch television sets in the middle of campus on Library Walk between noon and 3:30 p.m.

1. I don't know about making a show out of it.
sounds like a feverish attempt to heh...rally the troops. I'm all for uncensoring it, but in what context? Sounds like he's making it a public execution.

2. Fine. Repubs love to show abortion photos too.
Unfortunately, they oppose showing kids that are blown up by American cluster bombs and land mines, Iraqis corpses that have been mutilated by US troops, or even photos of American coffins returning from Iraq.

They appear to have some sort of ulterior motive behind the carnage the enjoy showing and the carnage they choose to repress.

3. Ok this is at a college level
Edited on Tue May-25-04 01:29 PM by nadinbrzezinski
but this is San diego for you folks...

The kid should also show the photos from the prison, as well
and keep their crimes and OURS in front of the people

Better yet, the kid should go down tot his recruitment office
and take the oath of enlistment...

5. Spirit of Kristalnacht.
This guy, Ariel Mor, should learn that the actions of a handful should not excuse atrocities against the many.

That it, lad. Licking the boots of a Cowardly "Charismatic Leader" will keep the next Hitler from rising...

10. Though my use of the analogy was not linked to his name...
...there is something to what you say. Oppressed peoples must draw the appropriate lessons from their experience in order to stop the cycle of oppression.

11. I understand and didn't think that was your reason
I and I alone bear the responsibility for linking his name to his potentially bein a Jewish Bushveik, which is really a "kinder and gentler" Jewish Nazi.

My idea alone.

6. American Technology Corporation of San Diego and voice-to-skull
communications, mind control, also has the DoD contracts for the sonic weapons now in use by US military. Here's a bit about American Technology Corporation of San Diego and their patented system that puts voices directly into skulls (doable since at least 1974), btw American Technology Corp. of San Diego isn't the only entity with patents on this voice-to-skull tech

Inside trading by American Technology Corporation

Ariel Mor may be using some of their commercially available products or be sponsored by American Technology Corporation of San Diego.
This is mind control stuff.

Mental health professionals are fighting back the ethical abuses and politization of the profession by questioning some of the diagnostic criteria used for psychosis but achieved through mind invasive technology and the use of powerful images like the Berg cultic beheading

8. This is sick
Why on earth would anyone want to see this? If this video is going to be shown, then in the interest of equal time, video of Iraqi civilians killed unnecessarily by our troops should be shown as well, so that students get a clearer picture of what the Iraqi people are "dealing" with. This kid doesn't have a clue.

13. don't sell the students short just yet--it's still early in the day
there may be some gathering at this 'screening' who will be holding up pictures of the damage we've done, too.

12. I wonder if they will be bright enough to pick up on the discrepancies.
Edited on Tue May-25-04 03:47 PM by Just Me
I'll bet at least some of them, notwithstanding the apparent RW orientation,...WILL pick up on some of the oddities. Wish I could email them a list of those oddities which they should easily be able spot.

Some high school teachers across the country, including Wisconsin, allowed students to watch the video of American Nicholas Bergs decapitation. After six, Joy Cardin and her guest examine whether students are too young to view certain images of the war.
