Terrorists have released a video that shows three hostages stating their ages, their country of origin as Turkey and their occupations as involved with efforts with the Coalition in Iraq. The terrorists have stated they will behead all three hostages in 72 hours if Turkish companies do not pull out of Iraq immediately. The deadline will end Wednesday US time.
Al Jazeera TV showed video of the three hostages kneeling on the ground in front of masked men holding automatic weapons. The hotsages held their identification towards the camera as they spoke.
 

CNN

According to Al-Jazeera the group in the video is calling itself Unification and Jihad. Though there are statements being made that the group is believed to be connected with Al-Zaqarwi, at this time that has not been confirmed. There are also statements being made that this is "the same group [who] kidnapped and beheaded American Nicholas Berg and South Korean Kim Sun-il".

Notice how they only capture and behead civilians. They dont seem to go after soldiers. But then again if you want to terrorize someone you go after the innocent civilians.

I guess they havn't got the brains to realize that we nor any other gov't are gonna give in to their demands. In what way do we need show or tell them this? They will behead innocents and it will get them nowhere.

I was surprised that their stated reason was to get Turkish companies to leave Iraq...I assumed it would have been a protest against Turkey hosting the NATO summit this coming week, instead.

they cant behead soldiers because they are not good enough and don't have the guts to try and capture a solider they know that they are going to get their... beat so they go after unarmored civilians because they are chicken anyone can kill civilians they think that they are brave for killing civilians yeah right.

I think killing all of them will make them understand it. The lame SoB's don't quite grasp the fact that no one is gonna bow down to their "demands", and to think such a thing is stupid. All they seem to be doing is alienating the entire planet from their cause. If they want to fight, why don't they do it like every other nation does, by building an army and attacking in that manner? All they're doing is hiding in the shadows, killing innocent people whenever they can. Only answer I can think of is that they aren't civilized, which leads me to seriously doubt the nature of their "cause".

We'll get them though. It may take years, but we'll kill all of them, and with world support, seeing as how they have terrorized themselves out of a home.

Just my thoughts.

i said it before and i'll said again, they dont care who they target. this isnt about america, its an excuse they use. i also dont believe these people are iraqis at all.

in fact i think a lot of what's going on in iraq isnt because of iraqis but those outside of iraq who went there to cause trouble. in the process of doing this they are killing their own people (arab/muslim) and they dont seem to care.

if they keep this trend up of killing every different kind of person in that region it wont be long before the entire world is pissed off at these people. then again they obviously dont care or else they wouldnt be doing this.

What I wonder is how many innocent civilians will need to be murdered before the nations of the world unite in wiping these sick bast@#ds off the face of the planet.

They made a big mistake by capturing and threating to kill Arabs. The Turks will not stand for this, and I bet some of them will question al-Zarqwi as to why they are now killing fellow Muslims. Of course they will be brainwashed into some infidel killing crap.

The more they bully, the more the world becomes pissed off and wants their heads chopped off.

actually the logic they use (if you can call it that) is simple, if you arent one of them then you are the enemy, if you side with what they believe to be their enemy you are their enemy. its that simple. the same line given by bush HAS been their logic and reasoning in all of this for a long time now.

what bush said was true, you're for us or against us. US, not the USA as the terrorists dont really see borders, they just see non muslims and muslims for the most part. they arent targeting just americans and never really have. in fact if you look through out the past 30 years in terrorist acts, attacks against america and american interests merely stand out the most but they are not the only attacks by a long shot. there might be a trend here and there but we arent alone in being victims of terrorist attacks.

so while some bashed bush for the you're with us or against us line, thats what the terrorists are forcing people into, a with them or against mindset as they dont care who they go after.

i am reminded of a person who seemed pretty mad that the south korean was kidnapped and this person commented that south korea hadnt done anything to anyone. i found that interesting, was this person saying that americans that were beheaded before him deserved it somehow?

they dont care who you are, if anyone wants to think this is about us being in iraq think again, this whole iraq situation is an excuse for them to simply kill "infidels". they know full well the countries that are sending people over there are not going to negotiate or give in to their demands. us being there is only a convenience to them, not the reason for their actions.

This is just getting worse(not the thread) the issue of beheading hostages why cant the co-allition forces pull out? O.K cos they are afraid that people will think they cant finish what they started, i mean personally i think they should pull out cos this situation will get escalate into something far worse as long as the co allition forces are in Iraq.

Its too late now, if we pull out al-Zaqwri wins and we lose. By doing that we give him to him and the deaths of Mr.Johnson,Berg, and the Korean were used by him and his men correctly.

If we can kill al-Zarqwi and his followers peace may be restored to Iraq, but there will always be that nut zealot Muslim out there in Baghdad,Basra whereever.

Hostages have 72 hours to live
June 27, 2004

AN al-Qaeda-linked Islamic group today threatened to behead three Turkish hostages in Iraq within 72 hours as US President George W. Bush arrived in the Turkish capital.

As noted above, they REALLY don't want to do this. An angry Turk is a thing to avoid. An angry Turkish Army - trouble on a stupendous scale.

Turks are NOT Arabs, don't care to be called that. Many people confuse Arabs ( ethnic group ) with Moslems ( religious group ).

Despite the chicken **** approach to who they take hostage and execute along with the fact that they know their demands wont be met. By kidnapping citizens form coalition nations its sure to cause tensions between the allies and like sanctum said siad bush is visiting turkey today so this is definitely going to be an issue. In the end their actions can go two ways (in the eyes of the west) either they encourage us to pull out or put an end to their worthless lives either way public opinion don't mean a thing.If our governments want to do something a little thing like democracy isn't going to get in their way.

the only thing they will accomplish by this is to alienate more of their own people.

There are two things to consider here: one the Turks defeated the arabs and the persions and ruled them under foot for 500 years, they are the only muslim nation that is truly feared by the arabs. Second, they defeated the Brits and the Austrialians at Golipole and performed outstandingly well in the Korean war. If these dishonorable insurgents incite the Turks into military involvement it will be the begining of the end for them.
