The Baghdad by Swords of Righteousness Brigade released a second video of hostages Auckland University student, Canadian and New Zealand resident, Harmeet Sooden (32); Canadian James Loney (41); American Tom Fox (54); and Briton Norman Kember (74). The men were seized on November 26 2005. This video was released December 5-6 2005.
How about a hint on what the point of the second video was?
Those of us in the 26.4kbps hinterlands can't view streams.
These "captives" are the so-called peace activists, no?
Has there been a ransom demand yet?
Do they still have control of their faculties...have their heads about them.
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

Maybe The First Didn't Work As Intended...
OK. I admit it. I misunderstood the title. I thought I'd missed a hostage released and I was about to read that a "second" hostage was released too. I'm disappointed.
Ok, Who are these Cats,Why are they over there? What do we know about them?
Somebody tell me again why we don't think these surrender monkey "hostages" and their friends would stage something like this?
I believe they want all Iraqi prisoners released. All of them...everywhere.
US has until Dec 8 to meet their demands...or else.
Names like "Symbionese Liberation Army". But they are really just cheap thugs and criminals who just want to murder someone. Why are these peace activists over there anyway?
I'll check back in Thursday to see their heads get lobbed off... Then, cruise around the other forums with a fresh bag of popcorn...
Think about it- they are led by the media and the propaganda of the left. If what they heard was true - they might have a point.
BUT they are sheep for the Democrats and the liberals, and it is sad to think they may die so some Democrats can keep their cushy jobs and go to cool cocktail parties.
Bottom line that is what this treason behavior is all about.
If they meet their demise, that will be too bad. I don't want one soldier to lose his life trying to rescue these traitors.
Huh? They're not throwin' Tookie Williams into their pot of demands? And what about the Kyoto Treaty?
I'm not the least worried for these people - no doubt their moral superiority and purity of soul will impress their captors and they'll be able to reason their way to freedom with little trouble.....
To get a reality check. I would guess it's working. It is difficult for a sheep to understand a wolf's lack of desire to be a vegetarian.
"British hostage Norman Kember urges Blair to withdraw
British troops from Iraq ... his captors threatened to
kill him and three other hostages Thursday, Dec. 8,
unless all detainees are released in Iraq. ... Seven
Western hostages are now held by a group identified
as Abu Musab al Zarqawis Iraq branch of al Qaeda ..."
So these peace-at-any-price activists are being held
by devout members of the Cutthroat Cult, and not by
Whether this is a stunt or not, I wouldn't care to bet
one way or the other on the outcome. Z-man must have
some minimal awareness that killing these fools risks
turning off a large number of their otherwise useful
idiot fellow travelers.
Terrorists kidnap traitors. This poses a major dilemma. For me, it's like watching the Army Navy game. My son's in the Navy, and Hubby retired from the Army. Who should I root for? And more importantly, how many bags of popcorn will I need?
It is a dilemma. :)
