This incident though is based on real-life (I sort of read the book which mentioned it) -- but I am sure it will be difficult to watch for those already desensitized by the savage, barbaric murder of the Jordanian pilot.

I know there's one more -- but I can't think of it right now. And am too busy w/ other more important things right now to look it up.

lol this is like the time baron asked a question and when someone provided an answer he refused to read it and then wondered aloud that no one could answer his question.

lol omg I want to see this! Perhaps he had him ignored and couldn't see his answer? Anyone have a link to this???
