I think anything goes in war, bombings, whatever.

Whether it goes or not, it's still uncivilized.

War *is* uncivilized

Not really - there are worse ways to die in war, though there is the Geneva Convention and some unwritten rules of engagement...

"there are worse ways to die in war"

That doesn't make it any more civilized, and I'm wondering what examples you have in mind?

Sure its uncivilized. But lets face it, anything does go in war. lol Either way I don't care, the wars aren't affecting me.

WAR is uncivilized.

^I concur.

Beheadings used to be considered thy most humane way to be executed.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/6/05 - 12:19:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
as others have said war is uncivilized.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/13/05 - 7:04:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's messy.
And if I had to be executed I'd rather be shot in the head and be sure I'd die immediately.
Heard to many stories about severed heads living on for seconds or even minutes.

spirit is right. War is not civilized by nature. and beheadings are never civilized, this question goes in the DUH category and should serve as a wake up call to all those newbieish mods who just accept whatever random sh*t people ask.

that is so f*cking disgusting.

if it's justified...i say go ahead and do it.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/12/05 - 11:29:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
YES, it is never justified.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/22/05 - 1:24:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
beheading is uncivilized. But I agree the concept of war in the first place is uncivilized.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/22/05 - 1:29:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Robspierre's Reign of Terror wasn't exactly civilized; why would beheadings taking place in the present be?

At the time yes. But now they know that your head continue to live for up to a minute after...
And of course we're talking about competent executioneer.

M1r4, i dont know where you heard those stories from, but they are total rubbish, severd heads living for minuites indeed!

The human head can live for aproximately 7 seconds after beheading, but i ageree that it is a very civilised way to execute someone, but execution itself is uncivilised.

Oh, by the way, to the person who said they dont care and war does not affect them? i really hope you have to live through a war, a real war, so you can see the horrors first hand, you stupid, spoilt child.

War and execution (and therefore beheading) are both uncivilised

Its a primitive method of killing. And inhumane. I do realise the hypocrisy in that statement, but I would prefer a bullet to the head or a needle in the arm than being decapitated alive.
