I've seen stills of ISIS beheadings, they're definitely real and do exist, and they're gruesome and shocking.
When the Foley video came out a couple weeks ago I made myself analyze the video to see if the rumors about 'fakery' were true. I zoomed in on stills, inverted colorization, bumped all thresholds to maximum, colorized every image to see any deviation. After 6 'slacks' of the knife there was no blood and no cut. Nothing.
I even took a still of a restored image just before the fade to black and there was nothing. The Foley video was NOT a 'beheading" video.
And now people are saying that THIS video was produced in the same manner, with no blood.
I believe ISIS needs to be defeated. But if we're going to base our rage off of videos, can we at least verify that the videos are what they are being PURPORTED to be? Why are we as Americans so duped into war at every turn? Are we so ready to go kick some *** that we forget people LIE? That Government and media CAN and DO consort to enlist propaganda for a reaction?
Have we lost all skepticism?

all of them are cowards, how do we know this? they are so afraid of our capabilities to locate a single person, in the world, that they need to wear a mask and hide their identity. man up boys and show us your face.
today's software can and will identify the person in the video, he will get a hellfire missle rammed up where the sun don't shine. in very short order

You're absolutely right. I wouldn't trust those Muslims going over there as far as I could throw one. If they go over there, they stay.

they've gotta be destroyed, these are barbaric people with no regard for human life. where are the good islamists to denounce them in the region?
Many Muslim groups have been battling ISIS for sometime, The Kurds for example.
Still I agree ISIS needs to disappear and fast.
