Posted on 06/26/2005 3:40:14 AM PDT by naturalman1975
A HOSTAGE held alongside Australian Douglas Wood in Iraq has hired bounty hunters to track down his former captors, promising to eliminate them one by one.
Swede Ulf Hjertstrom, who was held for several weeks with Mr Wood in Baghdad, was released by his kidnappers on May 30.
Mr Hjertstrom has since claimed he shared information with US and Iraqi troops about Mr Wood which led to the release of the 63-year-old Australian engineers two weeks ago, after 47 days in captivity.
Now, he wants to find those responsible.
"I have now put some people to work to find these bastards," he told the Ten Network today.
"I invested about $50,000 so far and we will get them one by one."
Cool - some mercs have a job to do. I hope this gets covered in a subtle way - dont want to warn off the cretins.
Hope the mercs dont get charged with murder for doing a good job.
Please post a link when you have it!
I like the way this man thinks.
That's great news! I missed the start of the programme and would really appreciate being able to see the beginning. It was on the whole very well put together and as you say, inspiring. Highly recommended viewing...three stars?
Please let me know if you succeed in your project.
Ruthlessness is the only thing that works with terrorists. Take these people out at home when they are eating with their family and kill the family too. The Russians have a name for it I forget that name but it works.
This is the coolest thing I've ever heard.
I wish it would start a trend.
A lot of things get contracted out nowadays.
Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Hjertstrom has a nice ring to it!
Now THERE is a Swede you don't mess with!
Watching it, you can see why both Wood and the Swede seem to have come through their ordeal in pretty good shape - they both seem like tough nuts to crack.
I should be able to work out something with the file - it's mostly a matter of finding some webspace to put it up on - it's not likely to be huge but it's not tiny either (somewhere between 10MB and 30MB, I think when it's finished processing).
"Upfront and personal retaliation"
Not only that, these "private contractors" could probably find some creative uses for pig blood and entrails which might really spook the islamofascists (think Gen. Pershing in the Phillipines).
You have a winning formula :-)
I like the way your mind works!
Pig's blood it is!!!!
He must be a throw back to the Vikings. Nice to know that ntt all of the old Norse genetic stock was either bred out, diluted, or migrated to the US (like my ancestors did).
"pig's blood it is!!!"
Catch a few of these terrorists. Be creative with the blood so they know what's coming before they are executed. Make sure you leave alive a witness to spread the word.
I like the way this man thinks.
I find it refreshing that this taste of good old Western revenge-justice is coming from a citizen of the most European post-modern, multicultural, bed-wetting, afraid-to-defend-themselves-for-fear-of-looking-unreasonable nation, the ever-neaurtal Swedes.
Geez, what ever happened to good Viking genes?
go get 'em....
Yes, I remember hearing that the Russians would go out and and abduct the terrorists family members and send them back to the terrorists in small pieces, in short order the Russian hostages were released. Don't know if it is true or not.
My ancestors, too. I was wondering there, for a while, if the remaining Scandis were all soft Marxists. Evidently not. I think that "Berzerker" gene is alive and well in the gene pool, tho, don't you?? I find it comes in handy now and then, personally.
It's only in realvideo format so the quality is not particularly high, and it's only a very small screen size. I had to do this because I'm on dialup and I have to keep the file as small as possible - but I also wouldn't want to put anything out there that was too high quality, in case this program is planned for broadcast elsewhere.
Thank you very much. Did you see this article in The Australian ? posted by Piefloater.
Thanks, yes, I did see it - so true.
What a remarkable man! This should be played on every TV in America. (But warning! It's ONE HOUR long!)
