That's right. If these Islamic Militant Groups are smart, they will already have realized, by various reporting and Governmental policies, that there is no such thing as negotiations. Now, we, the people, must realize these Militants of Islam may not be who they purport to be. They definitely are not serving to remove the 'occupants' of Iraq, and we, the people, should realize this by now, by the amount of beheadings that have already taken place.

they know full well that the administrations will not negotiate with so-called terrorists,
that CIA is behind all this!

My god, Are we going to be faced with this kind of news on a day by day basis?
The beheading of the week if you will?
I just do not get it.. terrorists who push their agenda or cause through bombings, hijackings, and suicide attacks.. But now following the strong global reaction to Nick Berg's beheading it would seem these "Terrorists" are driven to use this as one of their main tactics.
There does seem to be a very unusual feeling to all of this though I can't put it into words.. It all just seems very strange.
Again as in the other cases I hope this one has a good ending but I have come to expect the worst from these animals.
Thoughts and prayers with the victims and families that is the best we can do.

Fox News is qouting senior military officials as saying the Marine is missing and "may have deserted his unit" as he has been absent from his unit for over a week.

Everyone keeps saying, Delta Force will get him, or Marine Recon will get him. What about Nick Berg and Paul Johnson? Since they weren't in the military, they don't deserve to be rescued? I think it's very ignorant to say that since he is a Marine, now the military is going to rescue a hostage. I'm sure they try to rescue everyone American they can, and just don't go into action when a military member is captured.
Kimmitt said the Marine had gone on an "unauthorized absence" around June 21 -- and that officials suspect he may have been heading to Lebanon. The general didn't give more details.
Some of Ali Hassoun's relatives, including his father, Ali Hassoun, and a brother, Sami, are in Tripoli, Lebanon. The relatives said contacts were under way with politicians and Muslim clerics in Lebanon and Islamic groups in Iraq to secure the Marine's release.

We weren't occupying Iraq when 9-11 occured.
To say this violence occurs because we are occupying their space is ridiculous.
