ISIS Beheads Captured American Journalist, Threatens To Kill Another

An American journalist, James Foley who was previously held captive by pro-Gaddafi forces for six weeks in Libya, was captured again in 2012 in Syria by - at the time 'unidentified' gunmen - which we now know was ISIS. James Foley - a freelance reporter from Boston - was kidnapped Thanksgiving Day 2012. We now know the sad ending of this young man's life. In the following shocking clip just released from ISIS, Foley explains - at the point of a blade - "I call on my friends, family members and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. government" - and is then gruesomely beheaded. In the last few minutes, the captor shows another poor soul.

Most unfortunately, his statement before he was killed...

...was accurate.

Our meddling in the middle east for the last 60+ years has caused untold bloodshed, unrest and poverty over there.

It really started in 1948 when we helped draw the lines for the state of Israel and kicked 750,000 Palestinians off the land they were living on.

Much like the curse of slavery which we will always have to live with, our helping create Israel in 1948 is the same.

Of course, we've made it all the much worse with the dirt that the CIA does around the world and particularly in the middle east.

By ignoring the advice of our founders to avoid foreign entanglements, we (our government and CIA) have made every American citizen a target for pissed off (and rightly so) inhabitants of the middle east in particular.

Sadly, I have no pride anymore in calling myself an American.

And furthermore, if I were to travel abroad, I would tell people I'm Canadian out of fear for my safety.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Not saying this to you just because I am actually a Canadian :)

In every country I lived most people did not like what America was doing.
