This is so very sad. Very, very sad.

Isn't this the first women murdered by the muslim insurgents? I thought they had drawn a line against this before.

To be perfectly honest I don't feel angry over this now.Once captured the hostage is dead - any reprive is a blessing.

If I may state for the record, a Polish woman has also been taken, and in the Fallujah street the soldiers found the mutilated body of a blonde caucasian woman. Also the Jihadists have a long history of murdering innocent women and children point blank in Israel. This entire affair does not surprise me in the least, these monsters must be stopped and bullets and bombs get that job done.

This is a game of brinkmanship, you have an enemy that cannot win millitarily, they cannot win politically and the only way that they can hope to defeat the coalition is by commiting the most evil crimes and distributing them as snuff films - our leadership has to show nerves here, capitulation would ensure failure and that wouldn't be good for anybody. May death come quickly to her killers.

I believe so. This is just too horrible to comprehend. In fact, I don't really comprehend it. What a bunch of holes these insurgents are.

I think you are right A_Wanderer. They don't know how much they're hurting their own compatriots and co-religionists. Or maybe they do and just don't give a damn. The people who need help the most now are a hell of alot less likely to get it. This makes my blood boil.

How twisted do you have to be inside to do what these terrorists do?

They want to hurt the Iraqi people, if the Iraqi's get fucked over because no NGO's will operate then it makes it that much easier to incite chaos. There are definitely foreigners among there but when it comes to Jihadist it's allways the same shit with a different smell, from Bali to Beslan. Lets hope that people will start blaming those who hack heads off rather than the leaders who have the unenviable task of refusing to negotiate with them.

I think that they should establish a colonial office, like they had back in the days of empire. A fully integrated set that can provide security and the expertise (civil planners, engineers etc.) for nation building, the reliance on contractors doesn't seem to be as successful as it could have been, then again a new beurocracy is not going to be that much better, but at least they could guarantee the security for the rebuilding.

SOMETHING needs to be changed. If this keeps up people won't go over to Iraq to do their jobs for fear of being captured, which is a legitimate fear.

Again, I agree with you A_Wanderer. They can't go on like this, some big time changes are in order.
Ouch. I feel like someone, in some way, has killed me as well. I hope that doesn't sound too morbid. But maybe this is *that* disturbing to me. It's not exactly a "c'est la vie" deal, ya know?

That'll go over real well. I don't agree with any part of colonialism, and the thought of bringing some semblance of it back turns my stomach.

Something needs to change, but this is not the answer.

I wish the very best for her family. She sounds like she was a true humanitarian and lived an exemplary life while she was here. Terrible news for everyone.

We can give it a PC name, but the functions that are needed for nation building are not dissimilar to that of building empires. Getting electricity, water and security, establishing political control over a country these are all the same functions. The tweaking occurs in the type of political leadership established but having a dedicated group that can do these tasks is a lot better than relying on Halliburton or the UN, both of which have less than stellar records in this.
