More thoughts on the Nick Berg murder

Unwittingly, Zarqawi has reminded us why we fight. We also have images to compare side-by-side with the outrages in Abu Ghraib, and help put them in perspective. We also see the contrast in how our two cultures respond to their respective atrocities. Americans are shocked, embarrassed, and (rightly) outraged at the behavior of our soldiers. But we have not become like our enemy. Were that the case, we'd have been out in the streets dancing when the prisoner photos were released, and shooting guns in the air. Instead, we are having congressional hearings and courts martial. This horrific video puts lie to the offensive notion of "moral equivalency" that much of our Western media has been flirting with of late.
