All Americans share the loss of Nick Berger. Our hearts go out to his family.

It would appear that the demo's are trying to use this inhuman act to their advantage as his father holds President Bush personally responsible for his son's death. Well Mr Berger probably does not realize that President Bush was in the US at the time of his son's beheading.

(In france, beheading is considered a crime not an act of terror.)

Also it is not the responsibilty of the US military to baby sit.

The air waves are filled with other American voices coming down hard on the Berger family. All the hosts of these programs are not defending the comments but the family saying that this was a real shock to them and it as much as an expression of their grief. And at this point people should not come down on them but give them time to recover.

Should they keep this up, Nick Berger will be a poster child not for Kerry but for Bush. He will represent the evil we are fighting.

This too is going to cost Kerry a few thousand more votes in the heartland.

Here is Klink's Big Media in action. For those of you who might know this, the BG is Kerry's hometown newspaper. They were just trying to help their guy out.

"The Boston Globe newspaper apologised for running a photograph of graphic images purported to show US soldiers raping Iraqi women."

Actually this is worse than it appears Marc Pitzke could have easily taken the copy from the link I posted yesterday "Opinion: Exploiting Inhumanity" by Peter Philipp.

Link http://www.dw-world.de/english/0,3367,7549_A_1200745_1_A,00.html

I would hope any first year journalism student could take what is in the link and write what Pitzke did. There is not much talent to this.

Of course, if you are euro and do not have to worry yourself with things like facts, it should be a lay-up.

For those of you who might have checked out the link. I would like to add this is a comment a reader posted once having read this opinion.

"To stop the spiraling violence, people on both sides of this imaginary "front" must finally recognize that they themselves suffer most when they obey the demagogues. They must recognize they have the most to gain if they recall the basic rules of humanity, avenge and punish crimes, and, thus, put a stop to both the torturers and the cold-blooded killers."

I really wonder whether this guy believes this. On the one hand, its hard to believe that anyone could be this incredibly naive, blind and stupid. On the other hand, he does write for Deutsche Welle . .

Joe's comment:

I realize that American do not hold the morale monopoly that the Germans do, but comrades you opinions do not really play well here.

This is a comment from the heartland not from the Adminstration.

Malte Lehming in the Tagesspiegel also turned the Berg murder into yet another opportunity for Bush-bashing. I didn't read it because I didn't want to get upset; it was clear from the headline and byline where he was going.

By the way, shouldn't we be referring to Berg's killers as "murderers" rather than terrorists?

Ch,

No murderes puts it more in the context of a crime. Kind of like shop lifting or a traffic offense.

This was terror. These people should be hunted down and captured or killed.

This is war. It is not a crime wave.

Euroland has chosen not to look at this way. I hope they are right and I hope they feel safe with this attitude.
