I don't know much about British Prime minister Cameron, but at least he broke off his vacation to return home and address this terrible situation.

Whilst Obama returned back to golf.

I have some thoughts on that, and they aren't pretty.

It's probably been said already, but it need saying again . . . . . . . . .

This is as awful a way to go as any, and I truly sympathise with anyone who would suffer the same fate - and yes that even includes the "british" executioner, he deserves a trial like everyone else - although I may be persuaded to reinstate capital punishment for crimes as blatantly barbaric and merciless as this.

It really hits home to hear a british accent on the guy doing the killing, it demonstrates how things have changed since the illegal, immoral war in Iraq - which incidentally helped spawn and foster IS during their formation.

And why didn't we see similar during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars?

Where were these thousands of diehard Muslims, willing to be martyrs, when Palastine has needed aid? Are these Muslims not worthy of their brothers protection?

In actual fact it's because this is all being controlled and manipulated from the outside, just like Ukraine (and probably every other country to varying degrees) and ultimately it leads back to the same groups and the same people pulling the strings of all of these conflict's.

As we all know (or at least those who frequent this site, and others like it) these organised groups operate in secrecy, far from the gaze of the public - they are playing a grand game of chess and we don't even realise a game is being played.

This terrible execution of this poor human being should highlight the issue and garner intensive coverage in the Main stream media - watch carefully for buzz words and vague assertions, I cannot watch say BBC news without calling out bull# every 10 seconds!

Just keep an eye on what the powers that shouldn't be do in response to this provoking action - hegelian dialectic in play. . . . . . . . , ,

Help, who has the solution!

I dont get why ISIS is rehashing past failed fear porn that never worked before. It did not work with Nick Berg it never worked with any other executions. It is suppose to install fear in the most violent culture on the earth. We as Americans have been desensitized by violence and lust for it for some sick reason, I would doubt this beheading would raise the hair on the neck of most teenagers that kill hundreds of people a day in video game first person shooters and horror games. We have a blood lust, we have the most gun violence and more people in prison on earth than any nation 10 fold or more. But we are suppose to cower in fear HAHAHAHA some people in Mecca to Babylon need a crash course in Mercuh 101

But now, in a society of sociopaths we are suppose to compromise ?

LOL

ISIS did nothing but give the administration the green light for more bombing sorties. ISIS is a poor mans version of Al-Qaeda. A bunch of bandits with a street gang mentality.

So After being ''posting banned''

Hey, Over 9yrs on ATS there's a first time for everything

I find it pretty poor that people dont want to actually debate the logic behind this being fake.

1. Why would they do it?
answer: Because it has incited an emotional response against Muslims. Obama is even on TV talking about more hits against ISIS. It could be distraction from Ebola, Ukraine, Ferguson. There are many reasons, just because you wear blinders and cant think critically about your own decisions doesnt mean its absurd

2. How?
answer: If you want to fake something all you need to do is plaster it all over the media. Go to BBC, CNN, FOX - they are all talking about this gruesome movie of the US man being beheaded. What none of them say is that you dont actually see anything, there's no gruesome beheading. The dummy at the end can be created by any prop/hollywood shop

Points to note:
There is no blood coming from the through when he apparently starts cutting it open
The man in the jumpsuit is far to composed considering he is about to have his head cut off
The media has realized how blatantly fake it is and now urges people NOT TO WATCH IT! < that's a big hint!

This wasn't designed to bring out hate against ISIS, this was designed to bring about hate towards Muslims. Looking at your replies, its working!

I dont expect to change anyone's mind, but I'd hope yo don't just stick your head in the sand because you want to jump on the ''butcher muslim'' bandwagon!

Isis, are a bunch of scum bums with big mouths. Cowards behind masks mad because we Americans and blowing their crap up. Lets not forget these punks these low life's are beheading children raping women, massacre people like barbarians and putting heads on pikes in the ground. So yea lets keep bombing them, if anything this video showing a coward sawing this man's head off with a 6 inch knife has just added support to the American violence against them. I really hope in some demented sick way that these morons try to invade America, and raise their flag at the white house like they dream of doing. I would love to chop a few of their heads off and post it on my youtube channel..


I like how they blame us America, for the man getting his head sawed off. I learned in that video that isis, are nothing but cowards no way in hell will they ever be a real threat, even if they got a hold WMD.

really? Where is the common sense here?

ISIS, are just stupid and think they are smart. There are more stupid people on the planet than smart, hell their are animals smarter than over half the population of mankind...

I know better to even try and conjure up some conspiracy in this, its to stupid, and we do not need public support for bombing isis.

Thats what im talking about. You don't want to debate the valid points myself and others have brought.
There is something very fishy about this beheading video. All you want to do is attack the people and cry how absurd it is.


Tell me,

In the screen where James is talking his sleeves are all the way down his arm.
In the screen where his body is on the ground, his sleeves are rolled up above his elbows.

also

Why was there no blood when the masked man started sawing his throat? if you had watched the beheading video's from Iraq you'd see blood splatter going everywhere and you'd see a man struggling for his life screaming in agony. You don't see or hear this.. then the video goes black.

Are you not the least bit suspicious why ISIS will show you gruesome murders yet decided to black this one out?
does it not make you wonder why the US Media are now insisting no one watch this video?

are you capable of debating these points or just attacking the poster?

I do not want to debate about it.

I am just old enough to know, nothing is gained by staging this. Disrespecting this victims parents and loved ones, by saying its fake is kinda irresponsible and disrespectful, the man just got his head sawed off and you want to call it a circus act.

Its the truth kid, the man is dead.... I don't have the time to waste trying to fix stupid. Somethings are just to hard for people to understand I guess..

They did not just kill any American tourist, they murdered a member of the free press. The free press is neutral I guess nobody explained this to these troglodytes. They could have done a interview with the guy and sent a message of what they are about. But they literally killed the messenger, he was not even a emissary or diplomat of any sort. They murdered a man for nothing and the long term or short term goal will never suffice anyway just a waste of life... period.

So they hold no regard for the free press hence they render thyself mute, without a voice in the media to the rest of the world. Thinking barbarism will galvanize the cause and people will rally to IS with such a easy task.. killing is easy. Winning the hearts and mind of people is another. Why do you think OBL was sending video tapes to Aljazeera ? To be heard, Saddam tried this even but showed that he was desperate if anything. Such savagery historically never bodes well with the people.

I dont always read off a teleprompter but when I do I sound like bad actor

Look at your attitude, you don't want to even think critically about it. You just want to believe the media and talk about the family suffer and go .. as you put it:

I would love to chop a few of their heads off and post it on my youtube channel..


You are no better than ISIS, you say they are stupid yet, you believe everything the media says about this event and want to start chopping heads off yourself.


Nothing is gained from staging this?

HAH, look at your knee jerk response. Thats exactly what the people who staged this wanted. You fell for it.

Not everyone on here agrees with what the police officer did in Ferguson Firefly, I for one think it's appalling what is happening in the states.

The whole world has gone mad!

IMO we are living in "The End Days" and I'm not religious.

This is simply terrible. There are no others words to describe a situation like this. I can only hope that his family will get through this relatively well.

As for it being staged or not... there are some people who would benefit with this, yes. It could be fake, it certainly is a possibility. I don't particularly think so, because we all know ISIS is messed up. We didn't need any more proof, if TPTB wanted people to turn completely against ISIS, they could just have recorded some stuff that they have done and it'd be enough reason for people to want to attack them. Humiliating a man right before brutally killing him AND the way that they killed him aren't the worst (or rather, the only bad) thing they've done, if we're being honest.

But I can see why TPTB would do it, if they really did it. I really don't think that's what's happened, but I don't see it as something completely impossible.

Oh, and I have not seen the video, nor do I plan to. I've seen the pictures and that was enough for me.

I see where you are coming from BUT for what end…?



Exactly, who benefits? The west will certainly benefit if they can justify boots on the ground. Once there, they will march their collective asses into Syria. That's where ISIS "HQ" is supposedly at and we all know Syria is the prize. Than again, maybe my tin foil hat is just wrapped to tight. Who knows, finding the truth is a lot like whack-a-mole, knock down once lie and another pops up.


I think you're absolutely right. Everyone needs to calm down. Nobody saw a real beheading. This one is staged. Years ago, while exploring the darkest corners of the web, I watched a number of undeniably authentic beheadings and also a few fake ones. There's NO mistaking one for the other. I assure you folks, this is 100% bogus. Poorly done propaganda to wind up the war machine once again. Stunned how many here are falling for it.

Tell me,

In the screen where James is talking his sleeves are all the way down his arm.
In the screen where his body is on the ground, his sleeves are rolled up above his elbows.

Clearly the sleeves do not go all of the way down his arm, because you can see where they end despite his hands being cuffed behind his back. What you are seeing in the 'after' shot is a crease in the fabric; the sleeves are not rolled up. The sleeves appear shorter because he is lying on the floor and the shirt is not flush to his shoulders.


Why was there no blood when the masked man started sawing his throat? if you had watched the beheading video's from Iraq you'd see blood splatter going everywhere and you'd see a man struggling for his life screaming in agony. You don't see or hear this.. then the video goes black.

The militant is shown sawing into Foley's windpipe for approx. one second with a small knife of unknown sharpness. This does not at all warrant dramatic 'blood splatter'. Before he starts cutting he clearly holds Foley's lips together and presses hard completely covering his mouth, but you seem to find the lack of screaming odd. Did you actually watch the video? Serious question.


Are you not the least bit suspicious why ISIS will show you gruesome murders yet decided to black this one out? does it not make you wonder why the US Media are now insisting no one watch this video?

When I saw the knife he had planned to use, I was anticipating a rather 'inelegant' beheading. When I saw that ISIS had decided to remove that footage, my immediate guess was that it went on for quite a while, or he couldn't finish with the knife he began with or got tired, and it got a bit pathetic.

I too would recommend that no-one watch this kind of crap, how is that suspicious in the slightest?

The answers to your questions were embarrassingly obvious and yet you accuse others of not wanting to think critically. I suggest that you apply your critical thinking skills to your own terrible theories in future.

Actually, the sleaves go past his elbows and are not rolled/folded up. When he is on the ground, they are folded up above his elbow.
Look again. (dont post pics, you will be post banned)

He is sawing back and forth, there would be some blood running down his neck instantly. there is 0 blood.
Look again.

So? ISIS have released 20-30minute videos before. They show 8-9 minutes of people being executed.. Blood, Brains, split open skulls. If they really beheaded and American they would not have cut away. It would be there for the Fanatical Muslim world to drool over.



The answers to your questions were embarrassingly obvious

yet, you got them all wrong?

Isn't it funny how on ATS lately stars and replies seem to go hand in hand with the official mainstream media story? There are so many things wrong with that movie. Go and read the comments section on any main stream news website and you'll see how many people are calling out the obvious falseness of this movie. There are so many things wrong with it, yet people are so willing to believe it to justify their anti-muslim rage.

I gotta say, well said. I see now that ATS is mostly filled with nationalistic morons who believe in ufos and tabloid media. Not much critical thinking left. Looks like my radical notion (The idea of using journalists as martyrs to feed the war and ignorant hatred) was onto something. ISIS is nothing more but a western fabrication like Al Quaida. But we dont hear much about Al anymore do we. These clever distractions surely prove the book "Propaganda" a lot. A book written in the 1920's, which is about how easy it is to control the human flock of sheep by fear. "The bigger the lie, the more they believe it" Could not have been more true than today.
