Murder Fantasies

An Irish journalist has been kidnapped in Iraq, and while some lizards make a point of wishing for his safe return, others revert to type and call for his speedy execution. Below is a sample of comments, helpfully compiled by our friend SK:

See, the MSM does so report good news out of Iraq.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer tool.

It might be salutory for the guardian staff to watch this guy have his sputtering head sawed off with a butterknife.

Ohh, how sad, let me take out my tiny thumb sized violin.
I hope they make him a foot (or a head) shorter.

Something about it couldn't happen to a more deserving chap comes to mind...

Wow. I've not felt this much schadenfrude since the elections! Gonna OD on irony!

With any luck, the journalist will be sporting a burqa by sundown. The muslim psycopaths will think he's a virgin.

Payback's a bitch....and in the case, you might become one.

Seeing as how he is on their side, maybe they'll give him an opportunity to earn his raisins.

Or at least use a sharp knife when they behead him ;-P

I don't know about you guys, but I just can't get upset about a guy from a newspaper that's been supporting Hammas, Islamic Jihad and printing sympathetic articles on Islamism.

I guess it would be bad for this guy to get his head chopped and displayed on Al-Jazera. But considering how sympathetic his paper has been to the head choppers, it might bring home to the Guardian just what cultural differences we're talking about here.

The death of an enemy is, as Martha Stuart [sic!] says, a good thing. That it comes at the hands of the side he supports is a delicious irony. If, instead, this is staged, and he walks away to extol the virtues of his "kidnapers", well, here's hoping that a stray round puts an end to him.

I hope they slice off his feces filled cranium. Do you really think his tone will change if he comes back alive? Or will he continue to work propaganda for the islamnazis? If he continues to assist the enemy it is that many more dead Iraqis and Americans. Its not personal. Its strickly business.

..and so on...
