No good deed...

Nick berg's father, rather than being satisfied that justice has been served, expresses concern that this will spark more terror. (Of course, he doesn't see it as justice; he sees it only as revenge.)

I leave aside the question of whether terrorists really need an excuse to be given them before they increase attacks. Think of the implications of Mr. Berg's postition. No one may ever receive justice for fear that friends and family of the "victim" of justice will seek revenge for the execution of justice.

Yes, Mr. Berg, let's not do the right thing only because it's the right thing. Let's only do the right thing only if doing so doesn't cost us down the road.
