I've just about had enough of these peace-obsessed former hippies trying to rekindle the flame of protest from Vietnam. Remember the "Christian Peacemakers" that were taken hostage by terrorists in Iraq and then rescued by US soldiers? The ones that refused to thank the US soldiers in their intial statements but then changed their tune when the press coverage became negative. Well they're back trying to garner another 15 minutes of fame...
A Briton and two Canadians held hostage for four months in Iraq, have said that they unconditionally forgive their captors and strongly opposed the death penalty if they were convicted at a future trial.
"We unconditionally forgive our captors for abducting and holding us. We have no desire to punish them," Norman Kember, James Loney and Harmeet Singh Sooden said in a joint statement read at a news conference on Friday.
While forgiving their kidnappers, the "Christian Peacemakers" still blame the US for their own stupidity. Remember they were in Iraq on their own "mission" to make nice with the terrorists. (Kinda like the terrorists they adopted at Gitmo) Also we can't forget the fact that one of their comrades, Tom Fox, was killed by their heroes, I mean captors...
The trio said their kidnappers were "part of a cycle of violence that they themselves experienced" in Iraq, which was "inextricably linked" to the US-led invasion in March 2003.
"While this in no way justifies what the men charged with our kidnapping are alleged to have done, we feel this must be considered against any potential judgement."
Pardon me for being politically incorrect and not spouting the "well they were kidnapped so they can say what they want cause they were traumatized" excuses but thanks to repeated acts of moronic speaking truth to power, I no longer have patience for the peace-aholics. I say the Multi-national forces should have left their terrorist loving behinds right where they were. After all they were among friends.
