ANOTHER AMERICAN BEHEADED BY TERRORISTS
``In answer to what we promised ... to kill the hostage Paul Marshall after the period is over ... the infidel got his fair treatment,'' the statement said.
``Let him taste something from what Muslims tasted who were long reached by Apache helicopter fire and missiles,'' the statement said.

These people have no mercy. They will not rest until they murder and decapitate all Americans, if given the chance. The terrorists want Americans dead while we want all Arabs to enjoy the freedoms that we enjoy.
We cannot shrink in fear from terrorism. For decades now, we have sought the short-term solutions in an attempt to stave off facing what is a disgustingly evil scourge on this planet. Now, America is not giving in. We must not, we can not, forego the long term aim of eradicating this menace.
Thankfully, we have a president in George W. Bush who has not blinked when it comes to facing off terrorists. We can ill afford to allow someone like John Kerry to become president and carry out his policies of appeasement and sweeping our responsibilities under the rug.
