Backcountry Conservative is reporting outages to several blogs and large traffic spikes in others as sick f*cks scramble to view the video of the beheading. Another example of the good ratings Blogs get from Google and how they cross at times of high demand. (no we won’t be providing the link to the video here but you are welcome to visit Backcountry Conservative)

    I feel that the berg video is a U.S made video propaganda device to gain support for its unjustified war and determined actions to gain domination of the rotting and sick place we call earth.

    I have downloaded the video in order to do the frame for frame examination. I still need to get it to my other computer for that, but at first glance I am definately seeing psyops here. Al Qaeda always seems to do stuff like this right when the Bush Administration needs their help the most. I don’t want to mention any of the circumstantial anomolies that make this video suspect. I intend to examine the audio for what someone out there already reports is an American voice saying, “how are we going to do this?”. Even before an indepth study, howevere I am able to find the frames that show a human head appearing in view of the camara on the lower left side of the frame. Contrary to one of thoes comments read in anolther blog poo poo’ing everything as a wacky conspiracy theory, this is not somebody’s pinky finger. It is clearly a white man’s ear with a military haircut of his blond hair, wearing a standard issue US Army cap. I look forward to the internet tearing the lid of of this can of worms soon. This epitomizes why this War of Terrorism is so wrong, because its being used to manipulate us with lies in the same way Israel has demonized Palistinians with melodramatic MOSAD agents for 50 years, not to mention the thousands of innocents already dead thanks to Bush’s “holy war”.

    i agree with ata and trackback. for too long bush and blair have lied to us – and for too long have the people been foolish and gullible enough to believe the lies. i have seen the video and there are countless faults/errors with (fat, white ‘arabs’, really bad dubbing with the scream, the arabic spoken is ridiculoulsy unclear etc) – i didn’t see the video because i was a sicko or wanted to point faults out – instead i saw it because i wanted to see what actually happened (the news didnt show all of it for obvious reasons) its just american propoganda – any one who says it is is claimed to be anti- american, any one who says otherwise is pro-american.

    Friday, new video was released showing Iraq prisoner torture.
    The most important piece of information in this video is something that you don’t see.

    Digital cameras have been built to inclued a digital watermark that identifies which camera took the video.

    I am seeing messages on the internet who are saying the people at Kodak who developed the watermarking
    technology have compared the digital watermark on the Berg video with the new pridoner abuse from
    Abu Ghraib prison and the digital watermark matches one of the two cameras used in the Berg beheading.

    If this is true then it means that Americans killed Berg at Abu Ghraib prison.

    I filmed an interview with Berg while he was in the States, for my award-winning documentary F-9/11, which damns the Bush Regime. See my movie to find out more lies.

    Radical Islamic thought blames American foreign policy for the conflict in the Middle East.

    Sadly the radicals’ attempt to influence world events using violence and force is misguided. Terrorism has a very bad reputation in the West and is always ignored: if you give in once, then your children will never be safe.

    I don’t support the Israeli tactics, or the Palestinian tactics. The natural reaction for the west is to close off this whole area, leaving the locals to kill each other as they see fit. You see the other option: stop the killing by putting pressure on Israel to make peace, will not work. It will not work because the oldest security rule we have is that you can never give in to terrorism. If you do, you will see terrorism every day as a political and economic tool.

    I think British, American, Russian, Saudi, Iranian, Oman, Jordan UN etc troops should occupy Palestine and Israel, stopping this childish behaviour. You see I have lost patience with the general behaviour of this area. Bad.

    Intelligence requires thought.

    Micheal Moore is treating this war as an opporunity to make money. After this war is over and mothers have counted their dead, Moore will be in his big house counting his dollars.

    American feels that it is defending itself against Al-Quaeda and its Iraqi base. Arabs sometimes forget that America is very strong. I don’t care about oil and nor does America. You can run cars off alcohol or oil seed rape, easily enough. Grow up people.
