“If you have American blood in your veins or American blood on your hands, you will face American justice,” said Demers, the department's top national security official.

There are those who seek refuge to other first world countries running away from violence from their native lands. They were fed, clothed, housed and educated. And just when they are expected to stand by themselves and be a productive member of the community who nurtured them, they ran back to the violent ideals they left behind. Similarly in Japan, some are given a chance to work and improve themselves but at the end got a motive to bleed the economy dry in favor of their own native land.

I won't be surprised if they'll have book and movie rights offer and live comfortably while they cut short the lives of those whom they beheaded. And they have the gusts to smile and laugh while being interviewed!!!!Bastards!!!!

I don't think Sirs Paul and Ringo like this association.

If anything else it does show the eternal legacy of the Fab Four.

Still, calling these losers the 'Beatles' is pathetic and dumb.
