9. While torture is wrong in all levels
my friends who went to Afghanistan expected to be killed if captured in Jihad style, with a tape for mom and dad.

Same in Iraq.

They will be subject to the same as before, having their heads cut off on tape.

13. True
But the US Army does not distribute footage of people having their heads chopped off for propaganda value.

Again, torture is abhorrent. But these guys play by different rules, think pacific theater ww2.

6. If a beheading film shows up,
don't fall for it. Any election-week beheadings will be staged by Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld.

15. And 600,000 more or less dead Iraqis
I hope he comes home safely. I also hope that appropriate media attention is paid to the hundreds of thousands of dead iraqis resulting from the catastrophe we created
