It’s not just one person, but first it’s Bush, then the people who support him. Bush started it obviously, but the guy went there himself knowing it was dangerous.

I don’t know why the Koreans had to send more forces. In that case I would blame the S. Korean government. It’s too bad civilians get killed.

The terrorists. That situation shouldn’t have stopped the Korean government from sending troops; if anything it should be more of a reason to go.

You can say that the allied forces influenced why they killed the hostage, but the blame rests ultimately on those who carried out the act.

As a S. Korean, I don’t want to blame the government. S. Korea has mandatory service, so I won’t point my finger at anyone. For me it’s about human life, not blame.

The terrorists. Maybe Iraq needs a stronger leadership to control the terrorist elements. As for the future, I’m pretty pessimistic.
