US, British aggression blamed for hostage-taking in Iraq

Because we can't blame the aggression of Islamic terrorists who routinely murder people they claim are "spies and collaborators". We can't possibly hold the people who behead other human beings in broad daylight on the street and film it responsible for their own actions.

Let me tell you something. Iraqi's or Muslims in the Middle East for that matter, are not monkey's. They're not some sort of sub-species incapable of determining the difference between right and wrong. They're plenty of Muslims in Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan that know not to kidnapped and murder. They know right and wrong. It's not like a dog who doesn't know any better to shit on the carpet.

The US and Canada-based Christian Peacemaker Teams said Tuesday in Toronto that American and British aggression in Iraq is to blame for the hostage-taking of four pacifists, including two of its group members.
The hostage-taking is the result of the US-led "illegal attack on Iraq" and "the continuing occupation and oppression of its people," said a statement issued by the Christian pacifist group that has opposed the Iraq war.

Of course this is true because there was no kidnappings in that region of foreigners before the Iraqi war.(insert sarcasm where needed) Anti-war groups will never blame the ones responsible because that would twist their whole anti-war fantasy world. If these four were kidnapped because they were just westerners and the terror group is bloodthirsty, well, that would justify military action no? Can't have that now.

The pacifist group's spokesman Rob Holmes strenuously rejected the kidnappers' claim that the hostages were spies and evangelicals.
The four were "absolutely" not in Iraq to spread the Christian faith, he said, adding that his group is now also working on helping release the hostages.

Sounds like this is more about religion than politics. The terror group claiming responsiblity for the kidnappings is calling itself the Swords of Righteousness Brigade. That's got a religious tone to it doesn't it? The group could possibly be an offshot of the Islamic Army in Iraq which would spell bad news for the kidnapped.
Now the only hope for the victims may be the very soldiers they don't believe should be in Iraq.

Let's start calling a spade a spade people. Do I think Iraq was the prime territory for an invasion in the name of the War on Terror? No I don't. I think there is more to this war then terrorism and I think we all know that. Do I think this is a good chance for us to wipe out a good size of the terrorist population since they are all converging on Iraq for Jihad? Yes I do. Do I think we should stay in Iraq? Yes I do. Do I think the world needs to suck it up and admit that there is a serious problem within the Islamic religion that pushes people towards fanaticism and violence? You'd have to be blind not to see that.

In Indonesia, back at the end of October, three young Christian school girls were beheaded by Islamic fundalmentalists. Can this be the fault of the Iraq war?

And even though I highly disagree with the Christian Peacemaker Teams idea that the kidnappings were a direct result of the Iraqi war I do hope for the safe return of the hostages.

Hey Mad Man!
ever wonder had some things like this war are so clear and how so many people, I guess that would be the red states, could simply miss all the clues.
the scarry thing is are they missing it or do they just choose not to see.
thank you for being the voice of reason.
