Oh, dear God.

Confirmation is not in yet as of this writing, but an Iraqi group is claiming to have beheaded US Marine Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun. There is no video as of yet, but I'm sure it will be the same thing: three or four of these gutless bastards wearing masks, shouting "Allahu Akbar!" while one of them does the deed.

Tell you what, vermin: take the damn masks off. Let me see you kill a foreign hostage while you're looking him or her in the eyes, and while you're showing your faces to all the world. No, it won't make you any less the vile subhuman scum that you are, but at least you won't be cowards about it.

I'm sure that when our troops find you and kill you, they'll look you in the eyes before they pull the trigger. And they won't profane their religions by invoking God when they do it.

UPDATE: Now the group responsible is saying that they haven't yet killed Cpl. Hassoun. No other information is available as of this writing (9:30 am, 7-4-04).

UDDATE II (8 July): Now the missing Marine is confirmed safe, and an investigation is under way to determine if the whole thing was a hoax. This is why I try to not post in anger the first second I read a news story (as I did here), all you "Where's the outrage!" people.
