chopping heads off will never work and they may as well not bother as nobody will give in to terrorist.
i blame the spaniards myself by capitulating to them gave the terrorist hope of more leverage thru beheadings :(

The BBC is reporting that he was executed a few hours ago.

What a mess!

MDN , are they talking about the Arabic descended Marine, or SFC Maupin who was lifted about 12 weeks ago?

Condolences to the family and colleagues of the murdered prisoner, and if Cpl Hassoun is still alive, I hope and pray his colleagues are leaving no stone unturned looking for him.

its Maupin

There are reports that the Turkish (muslim) hostages have been released. Those who lifted Cpl Hassoun may score an own goal if they murder him, as he is also a muslim.

I suspect that they'd wouldn't care, he would simply be another number on their way to glory. Sad as it may seem.

Hope I'm wrong.

I'm not sure that that will particularly bother them. It seems to me that the target audience for internet beheadings is the US electorate rather than the Islamic world.

Poor fokkers. Horrid thing to say but by not bowing to their demands hooefully the message will get trough and the murders stop - the worst thing would be for a government to give in to demands.

Obviously you'd think the same if you were being held

its a no win situation i fear, the terrorists will not end their murderous ways and the (majority of) the civilised will not give in to them. i feel so sorry for the families of the people captured, murdered, injured or tortured but sadly i can't see any sensible way out. horrible times we live in.

Yesterday's Times reported that Hassoun was captured because he intended to desert. Apparently he had befriended some Iraqis working at his camp and they were going to help get him to Lebanon. Instead, they handed him over to the militants. So much for all this 'all Muslims are brothers' crap.

Apparently Hassoun had earlier told a cousin that several Americans had deserted with the help of locals. Semper Fidelis - obviously not.
