Your Civilized World: If South Korea Does This, Would Al Qaeda Behead the Dogs?

"A 2-year-old dachshund barked chained to its dingy, wooden house Tuesday, unaware of its fate as South Korea began slaughtering hundreds of dogs, cats and pigs in an effort to stem the spread of the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu. ...Quarantine officials began the slaughter Tuesday even though international health experts have questioned killing non-poultry species to curtail bird flu's spread, saying there is no scientific evidence to suggest dogs, cats or pigs can pass the virus to humans.

"Indeed, no evidence exists to show cats or dogs play any role in the spread of this virus," said Dr. Michael Greger, director of public health and animal agriculture for The Humane Society of the United States and author of a book on bird flu.

Many of the canine victims are namesless. The dachshund's owner could not recall the name her daughter had given her dachshund. ... Dogs are routinely bred for food in South Korea, where dog meat is widely consumed, especially by middle-aged men who believe dog soup aids their virility.

29-year-old Kim Sung-tae remarked, "I have little puppies that are as small as my palm. How can they have the heart to kill those small things?"

The current generation of Americas is too soft to convince Al Qaeda not to mount more attacks against us. History must unfortunately repeat itself until the last Islamic radical is slain or converted to the human race. So be it.
