Fox News Channel is reporting South Korea will not pull out and is still comitted to sending more troops.

This whole thing is starting to get really out of hand. The US needs to do whatever they can to get Some World Support.

Don't like how this is playing out

Actually, the US doesn't need to do a damn thing to get world support... these kidnappings will do it on their own.

You don't honestly believe the world will say the US is #ed up when, within Iraq, civilians are being kidnapped and the kidnappers are making statements that the civilians will be bar-be-que in 72 hours unless all demands are met, do you?

Frankly, i believe the greater the incidence of terror world-wide, the greater support the US will have. As soon as terror-levels die out, you will see support decline as well.

Seems that these people are just grabbing anyone they can including other Arabs, guess thats what "savages" do.



At the same time, the family of one of the abducted East Jerusalem residents has asked Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat to intervene, Channel Two reported Thursday. Palestinian sources told the Itim news agency that Arafat's office was closely monitoring developments in the case.

Whats Arafat going to do?
Just monitor the situation?
Certinally all he has to do is make a phonecall, right?
Or, do they think he is just as much a joke is the Iseralies do?
It must suck to be a Palestinian

The Israelis are dead men, no way they'll ever let them go. After the release of the South Koreans, I'm not sure if they will hold onto the Japansese hostages, but then again feelings toward the "house of war" may prevail.

The Briton is probably gone as well, too bad

Baked I see you new title is NEURONAUT.

Are you sure it shouldn't be NEURO-NAUGHT!


The Arabs have Israeli papers.I'm sure they are not Mossad but that is what the people holding them think.

If Arafat intervenes to to give credence to their claims that they are Palestinians then there is a chance that could be released.

It's not what you think of Arafat that counts.It's the "Arab street"(Arab/Muslim opinion) that counts and Arafat is still popular.

does any body besides me see how this is whole thing is being ramped and the timing of it???

isnt it amazing that things just seem to be getting worse??? (sarcasm)

This is all an incredible amount of manipulation by certain forces to obtain a response that gos much like this..."weve got to do something about this!!!"

our leaders are pawns in the hands of forces that are hidden and have an agenda that is going to make the holocaust look like a date with little mary sunshine.

They know damn well they are creating more terrorism and theese terrible dramas that are being played out at the expense of average lives...
does this not make anyone upset or do you think this is all just about a bunch of ragheads and there demented religion....think out of the box for just a minute...just one minute consider something other than what you firmly believe to be the truth

I have had that title for a few months now. GOOD observation skillz tho.



It's "NEURO-NAUGHT" after work when I blow all the daily stresses out in a cloud of holy smoke.


Well, in all seriousness, I believe that Arafat will be extinguished real soon. As soon as that happens the media will have a grand old time bouncing back and fourth between what's going on in Iraq and Israel.
Maybe this would be a good time for Israel to stop stalling and kill him already.

thats just great ...theres one thing i can truly appreciate is someone standing in judgement of who should be killed and who shouldnt
and when it should be done and then certain news agencies can start bouncing back and forth between issues...youve just gotta love that philosophy ..really deep and intrisic and definitely deserving of my wats vote for the month

I was not "standing in judgement" of anything.
I was simply stating that the attention is diverted away from whats going on there at this point. MAYBE it would be an opertuine time if they were to kill him.

As for the news agencies bouncing around between the two conflicts, what's your beef with that? Would they not bounce back and fourth between the conflicts? The "grand" thing was sarcasam if you didn't catch it.

To put it on a kindergarden level for ya without the sarcasam:
It would be a busy busy news day!

Oh, and I couldn't care less about your WATS vote.

My post was relivant to the topic, however yours was not.

UPDATE

7 South Koreans freed, 5 remain hostages


BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Seven South Korean missionaries abducted by Iraqi militants were freed Thursday, but five other foreign nationals remain hostages in the country, according to government and media sources.

The South Koreans were among at least a dozen foreigners kidnapped as fighting continued between coalition forces and Iraqi insurgents in several cities.

Who here thinks the hostages are going to killed regardless of whatever the Japanese army does?

Another question, does the army know were the hostages are being kept?

Actually, I think the British guy has the best chances of Survival. I have a feeling his kidnappers are suddenly going to find thier guts being strewn all over the room at the end of SAS bayonettes. Unlike the Americans, who pretty much let thier hostages rot, I have a feeling the British troops down there are going on a rescue operation real soon, and theres going to be some VERY dead terrorists.

Sigh. I ask anyone who thinks democracy is a good thing for Iraq to take a good look at these assholes. Democracy for these goons? Plulleezee.

Yet another reason to pull out and leave the whole damn country to its own devices.

well said skadi,

the SAS can be trusted to come up with some cunning plans and save the day.
however, none of us have been inside these neo-hazardous locales? i mean...fallujah alone is a big snake-pit damnit, i doubt the coalition forces will over-come this one, Civil war IS on their doorsteps...


one hopes the brits pull out, and leave the americans to their own devices, dont u think ?

I dont think any of thems got a good chance of living, esp. the israelis.

Heres a unfortunate thought, they could be all dead already, we have no way of knowing.

I don't know if this is related exactly to this but I heard on CNN that the terrorists are threatening to kidnap people and burn them alive.

Actually, Cyrus, I want to see the entire coalition pull out and leave the Iraqis to thier own devices. The US might pull out alot sooner than you think. People here are beginnign to think the Iraqis are simply too savage for Democracy or such western ideals. If riots and massive protests start breaking out like they did during Vietnam, well be leaving alot sooner.

that's an illusion...bush, unless toppled, wont stand to that.. what with kerry calling it "Bush'es vietnam".

they might be too savage, all the more reason to re-inforce the troops with some conventional firepower.
those troops are out there with crappy a4's, i say, give 'em kalashes... m16's and a4's clog up too damn much.

judging by the latest images in fallujah, this war keeps proving how unjustified it's been...rushing in there etc, it's time to either settle it all, or run, bush'es choice really

Cyrus


ps: yes, the coalition needs to pull out, it's just...well, dont blame me for thinking the troops are there because they want to, my sympathies go out to the troops only.

And remeber, Cyrus, Kerry is gainig alot of popularity. So, as the 9/11 commision churns slowly forward, and # starts comming out, hell we even have super NEO con Bill O Reilly criticizing Bush.

His days are numbered. But Kerry might not be much better. He might pull us out of Iraq, but if you only knew what Ive learned about Kerry.....pulling out of Iraq will be theonly good thing he will do.
