We were told that it was showing a “kinda-sorta” trial, that a scream was heard and the head of the victim shown…But actually, it shows animals cold bloodily slaughtering Nick and hacking his head off for long seconds in a pool of blood…

Yes. The savagery of the act and the screams will haunt me for a long time but certainly not longer than the anger and the hatred I now feel for these beasts.

Remember Pearl, Quattrocchi, Berg, the dragged US bodies in Somalia, the corpses hanging from a bridge in Fallujah and our soldiers executed or blown to pieces by roadside or car bombs. Remember our people jumping to their death from the burning towers. Remember the real face of the enemy before opening your heart; they will put a bullet in it!!!
So what are you going to do about it ? As I remember CNN were rather pro war at the beginning.

I don't think the American public have the stomach for this kind of conflict. You will get out of Iraq and Afghanistan eventually.

We didn't go to Afghanistan nor Iraq to stay. Yes we will leave. This isn't a colonial type expansion.
No the American public does not have the stomach for war. No matter how many times you tell them people die they can't seem to fathom it.
The American public has once again become complacent since 9/11 and fails to understand that the threat is still very real.

I suppose the big question is when the US forces will leave? When the American public gets sick of the whole business (4-5 years) or when the new Governments of Iraq and Afghanistan are looking rather stable (10-15years with lots of support and luck).

We will leave when the Goverments look "stabilized". We'll rotate our troops home just in time to load them up again when the two countries are objects of coups or the like and their "stable" goverments are overthrown.

Do you think the Iraqis and Afghans will keep wanting you back?

As with any similar mission, the end-goal is to enable the nation involved (Iraq in this case), to not need outside intervention again. Whether they want us back or not is a difficult question considering that the majority of Iraqis are in favor of us being there.

Have you read about the latest intelligence reports on the likely outcomes in Iraq? They don't seem very positive.

What do you think boys?

I will be happier when we're no longer needed in Iraq, but Islamic Fundamentalists seem to want to keep us there for some reason. Why else would you constantly launch terrorist attacks? Just trying to lead the US to the conclusion: "nope, Iraq just isn't stable enough, better stay in".
