I saw an article online about the killing of a broadcast journalist in Iraq; written by a writer who knew the reporter who had been killed.

The description is grafic; and talks of the brutality of the killings of people in Iraq by some groups.  

I do not know how often in the past I've seen these kinds of videos sent out by terror groups to news companies or supporters or whatever.

I saw many of the videos while working on the Newsdesk of major asian broadcaster. Most were too gory to air. The description writen brings back hanting memories of things i've seen so many times – so many faces – albeit on video that still haunt me.

Yet, for those journalists and others here killd you rarely see the images, you hardly feel the painful lastm oments as they shout out for justice.

I read the descriotion I tihnk of other people killed by one side or another in constant attack on people whose job it is just to bring the message out. A rebutal of death to  report someone somewhere didn't like.

It will probably not end soon – these kinds of killings of reporters and journalists; in some cases it does quiet down critiism for a few days.

But then in a rush scores of more voices are raised and words flow to make the story those who want not to be not told have to kill or run and hide.

read the article; it says a lot tht needs to talked about – but to he killers; with each act of brutality they do – like this one- thier evil spreads a thousand fold. And whatever message they ad hoped to create or silnce will only be told over and over again.
