71. Are you suggesting....
this is no big deal? So another Americans head gets cut off who really gets hurt?

I was all over the disgraceful torture scandal. Actually a couple of my friends thought I was a little too into it.

That aside my point is...this is a big deal and I have no problem with the news reporting this with the same verve that they showed during the torture story.

So dont be silly, because thats not "drumming up some blood thirst". Thats simply giving the story the respect it deserves. You sound just like some of my crazy repug friends who siad "Oh this torture stuff is no big deal". Sure it was and this certainly is.

My problem is two fold

1) Those here who want to ignore this because it may "help support for the war"

2) Some people here and on the other side who want to use this to make some stupid politcal point. They both disgust me.
