Beheadings in Iraq are spurring copycat beheadings throughout the world. Thailand , The Netherlands and Haiti, seem so far away from the violence in Iraq , extremists though see this as an opportunity to make the headlines and create a feeling of terror
amongst the general public.

ANKARA, Turkey - It was called "Operation Baghdad" and, to be sure, the headless bodies of the three police officers recalled the violence in that city. But these attacks happened in Haiti, not in Iraq.

The brutal beheadings in Iraq appear to have inspired militants in other parts of the world who are drawn to the shock value of the horrifying attacks and the intense publicity they attract.

Thailand and the Netherlands are two other countries where suspected extremists recently beheaded or slit the throats of their victims in what appear to be copycat attacks.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

The attacks in Haiti's Port Au Prince were brought upon three police officers found beheaded , Haitian officials say that the militants have launched a campaign called Operation Baghdad.

Experts and analysts now say that though the initial effect was true shock and awe , that effect is changing as people grow more and more used to the ever occuring beheadings.
