    :eek: :mad:

    I downloaded a bunch of short home made videos.
    Titeled: "Decapitations"

    Showing the decapitiation of several foreigners in Iraq including Daniel Pearl, as well as Iraqi's and Afghans at the hands of Insurgents.

    Very graphic and schocking to see how easely and without remorse these people can pick up a knife or sword and hack/cut some ones head off as if it where an animal.

    Seeing something like this makes me glad US and British troops are in Iraq and Afghanistan taking out all these insurgents.

    They really are no better than animals when you see how they behave!! :suicide:

    A lot of those videos were fakes, pretty easy to see that.

    I think the people who show interest in these videos are as morally bankrupt as those who make them.

    In AMLs defense, I dont think he is actually saying the videos are ideal for your sunday evening viewing. More that , this sort of thing makes you realise just what some of these people are actually capable of. I dont agree with the videos being posted on the net, but considering what the human animal is capabale of, perhaps it doesnt hurt for us to be reminded ,how lucky we actually are to live in a more civilaised part of the world. We are also lucky that this sort of thing is not hapening on our door steps every day.

    I'm well aware of what people are capable of. I only have to watch the TV news every night to see what they are capable of. When I'm told that decapitations are happening, I accept it, and have no desire to witness them. There is no excuse for downloading this stuff. Watching this stuff even through morbid curiosity is not civilised behaviour. You are only taking yourself down to the same level of depravity as those who made the videos.

    I agree with Nick on this one. I can appreciate the horror without needing to witness it.

    Each to his own,but I personally cannot see why anyone would want or need to download this sort of material...we know very well what these(and other terrorists) are capable of.

    We are slowly allowing ourselves to be de-sensitised to violence. Only 30 years ago, the thought of showing the aftermath of terrorist bombs including the injured and maimed would have been considered unfit for public consumption. Now we see it, and we're not phased by it.

    Then why are the bosses of c5 not jailed for showing someone being stabbed to death the other night(shockdocs)? what is the difference between watching a murder on your phone or on the tv? or does the way in which someone is killed make it more illegal than others?

    I agree, standards are slipping. Are we as a people becoming more violent and evil? :confused:

    I am not having a pop at AML here, but I cant understand why people want to see snuff movies and why for some people it turns them on. I have been shown a few clips from faces of death when I was younger at a party and the images were disturbing. They were nothing like a gorey Holywood movie and were something different all together. I can remember being disturbed by the few images I saw and vowed there and then that I didnt want to see any of this tripe again. Nasty evil stuff. :thumbsdow

    And I know that in arab countries they are watching/downloading videos of US/UK killing of innocents, including kids blown to pieces by bombing, which came first the chicken or the egg? What makes a pilot bombing a village in Afghanistan any different? If you read the news you'll relaise there have been a lot of civilian casulties, of course we dont even count the civilian deaths in Iraq, so are we considering them as humans?

    I have to be honest that I didnt watch all of them as I started to feel sick.

    I didnt particularaly WANT to see this, but lest face it. the media isnt exactly doing their job.

    They should have shown these videos on the news, wether we like it or not.

    And in a way I am tired of being sheltered and tired of seeing death being "cut" out of the media for "our own protection".

    If people could see exactly what was going on in Iraq, then maybe they wouldnt take so many swings at Blair and Bush. At the same time I dont endorse what they do either.

    Just feel the media should be impartial and show ALL news regardless.

    I shouildnt have to down load such videos.

    We may think we know what these terrorists are doing, but we never actually see it and therefore we are turning a blind eye to it.

    I honestly feel that Europeans, Americans and Even Japanese tend to ignore whats happening in the world and seem to concern themselves with "rising gas prices" and other such nonsense while their own country men are having their heads cut off.

    Imagine what the reaction had been if people had actually seen Daniel Pearls head being cut off.

    this thread reminds me of a similar situation i had when helping clear out a mates garage, we were putting all his books to go in storage whilst his garage was being converted, i found a book called "lynchings of Black America" or something similar, and it was basically a book full of photos of lynchings in America, i was pretty shocked at this book ( i cant stomach anything like this) and i asked him why he had a book like this and told him i thought it was pretty sick . his answer was " you need to see what the so called world leaders ( america ) were doing a mere fifty years ago, do you feel comfortable now, that the supposed world leaders were doing inhumane acts like this, it opens your eyes" and to be honest he was right, i live in a cusihioned comfortable world, where i dont need to worry about getting lunched, bombed etc, but it makes you open your eyes to what is going on. and the beheading isnt something that i would get kicks out of seeing and to be honest i wouldnt want to see it, but i think it would certainly make more people aware rather than have a picture of the guy smiling in a suit.

    Imbeded journalists never really seem to show anything do they? only what our "mighty" military is capable of. What they should be showing is the result of war.
    As Harj said, we should be able to see what those bombs are doing, and in exchange what the terrorists are doing.

    We lead a sheltered life full of censorship and concern ourselves with unimportant every day menial problems while the killing continues.

    I didnt download these videos out of some morbid fascination, I did it because I owe it to myself to know the truth. As do all of you.

    i dont think it is only truth if you can watch it, but as they say " a picture paints a thousand words" so imagine what an uncensored video does.

    I disagree. I have seen countless murders, stabbings and other violence in the movies and now I have become hardened to it.
    HOWEVER I have only seen one REAL killing on the news and I was shocked. There was no blood, no special FX the guy who was standing just fell vertically to the floor.
    I was shocked two seconds ago the guy was alive and now he is dead.
    If I see real human suffering or killing I still find it shocking regardless of the amount of far worst acts I have seen on TV.

    If it's the case I read about, he was jailed for showing it to a receptionist or sales assistant. She reported him as she had no idea what he was going to show her and was traumatised by the experience. I think the charge was based on this rather than the fact that he had these images.

    Well, I dont quite see what you mean by that.
    These videos were made by the terrorists to show off what they would do if their demands were not met.

    All I can do is watch. Unless your saying I should go to Iraq to see for myslef. If I did I would probably end up on one of those videos.

    TV is a powerfull tool if used correctly.

    I saw a video on today of a cop being killed, well you didn't actually see him get killed but you saw the guy who killed him shooting at him and you could hear the cop screaming. The screams were what made it so disturbing and I think he knew he was going to die. I think I was more disturbed by this video than I was by the Nick Berg beheading video. It makes you wonder how someone can be so inhumane.

    People need to see things to realise the importance of them. I mean you hear a guy got killed in your town and you say "Poor guy... right what should I watch on TV". If you saw a video of it I bet you you'd care more and maybe be more careful when you go out, or want to get involved in punishing crime etc.

    But on the other hand if we saw the true horror of what our leaders or criminals or terrorists do, we'd probably all want to commit suicide to escape from this life.
    Only humans are able to commit such horrible things.

    This, and "research" is the standard excuse used by paedophiles.
    And, before anyone asks, I am not suggesting anyone who views offensive material necessarily condones it.
    But the general concensus is that publicity through viewing etc does help perpetuate these practices and can generate an unhealthy interest among people that way inclined which then adds to the demand for this kind of material.

    Oh don't talk such rot. I'm quite aware of the atrocities on both sides - I don't need to see it for myself.

    I find it slightly ironic for someone go on about "the atrocities of war" and then have a sub-machine gun as their avatar :rolleyes:

    What do you do when not posting in here ? Play war games ?

    No, animals do horrible things too. But they do it to survive. And we don't have all the other animals hanging round to revel in the "gore".
