One of the things about the Nick Berg beheading that doesn't seem to have gotten much coverage is that it's not unique and not even unprecedented for islamist fighters to film. I saw a video of Islamists beheading a russian in Chechnya and that was years ago. He didn't even get the cursory mainstream media coverage that Nick Berg is getting.

I think that it is important to start paying attention to Islamist actions against other countries. No matter what they are doing there, if it is viewed as successful, we'll eventually be the target of it.
