I am busy
Don’t you hate it when bloggers post that they’re not going to post the rest of the day? It annoys the hell out of me, personally. Nevertheless. Now you know.
Coincidence? Sure. Sure it is. We report… you decide…
|::::::::||BAGHDAD, Iraq — A Catholic archbishop kidnapped in northern Iraq was freed Tuesday without any ransom being paid, a day after he was seized by gunmen, the Vatican said.||::::::::|
Good news, indeed. Not so good, from the same story:
|::::::::||Meanwhile, a video surfaced Tuesday showing eight Chinese construction workers held hostage by gunmen claiming the men are employed by a company working with U.S. troops, in the latest abduction of foreigners in Iraq. China’s official Xinhua News Agency said diplomats were “making all efforts to rescue” the hostages.
The men from China’s southern Fujian province went missing last week while traveling to Jordan, Xinhua said.
You know, the last people on Earth I’d be pissing off would be the current owners of the world’s largest standing army who have a history of not giving too much of a damn what the rest of the world thinks when they decide to move. Oh, and China’s a lot closer to Iraq than we are. Just saying.
