This is why we are fighting!
Nick Berg liked to play the saxophone. When he was at high school he was a member of the marching band and neighbours would hear him practising in the evenings at his parents' house, the music seeping out through the walls. Mr Berg was beheaded in Iraq by extremists apparently closely linked to the senior al-Qa'ida operative Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who took him hostage and then made a video of his execution which they posted on to an internet website. In a statement they read out before sawing off Mr Berg's head with a knife, the five masked men claimed they were killing the self-employed telecommunications engineer in revenge for the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by US troops at Abu Ghraib prison. Democrats think we should not be fightinig this war over in the middle east and that we should deal with terrorism in our home country. Well if we dont stop these people who will, because clearly they have no respect for human lives. This has been taken from http://news.independent.co.uk/world/americas/story.jsp?story=520744
