...but in light of the recent murder of Nick Berg for the crime of being born in a particular country, it bears repeating:

"Atrocity is recognized as such by victim and predator alike, by all who learn about it at whatever remove. Atrocity has no excuses, no mitigating argument. Atrocity never balances or rectifies the past. Atrocity merely arms the future for more atrocity. It is self-perpetuating upon itself--a barbarous form of incest. Whoever commits atrocity also commits those future atrocities thus bred."
--Frank Herbert

I didn't see this video, although saw the one of Daniel Pearl.

Enlightening thought.
