Nur al-Cubicle writes about a website that surpasses any definition of obscenity and inhumanity.
www.nowthatsf**kedup.com basically offers free access to its pornographic content in exchange for graphic pictures of war and bloodshed:
"If you are a US soldier deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan or any other theatre of war and you would like free access to the site, upload the photos which you and your buddies took during your service."
According to Nur, the discovery was first reported by an Italian blogger and the story has been carried by the Italian press agency ANSA:
"Browsing through the posts is like a descent into hell. Each post contains the most graphic of images, escalating in barbarity and viciousness and accentuated by the comments left by posters. The posts exalt the violence of the images, shot in a theatre of war. You see headless, armless burnt bodies, a face in a bowl, the remains of suicide bombers, an arm or a leg accompanied by inhuman comments, extolling the horrors..."the only good Iraqi is a dead Iraqi." The comments are stupefying in their cynicism...there is even a barbaric quiz, asking the question, "what body part is this"...?"
It's likely that a site like this will get taken down, for proof Aqoul has saved screenshots but will not be posting them.

How very interesting. One imagines those photos would be useful to all sorts of people, and this seems like an effective and low-risk way to get hold of them. WHOIS reports the domain is owned by a guy in Belgium, but I don't have the patience or language skills to determine whether or not the info given checks out.

I saw that on Sabbah's site as well. Man, that is sick stuff. I say they put that on CNN, their sons and daughters glorying in the deaths of others and see how long the US supports the war.
