A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Wednesday, July 21, 2004 Thanks to the Philippines: Three Indians (from India, not America), two Kenyans and one Egyptian have been reported kidnapped in Iraq. Foreign terrorists and Baathist bitter-enders were emboldened by the Philippines' caving to demands to pull out its 50+ troops to prevent the beheading of one of its citizens working in Iraq.
Those three countries can thank the Philippines for their troubles.
Those three countries have a really big problem. They have absolutely no way to comply since none of them have any troups in Iraq. Say bye bye to the hostages.
