Hostages in Iraq
Unfortunately, I do not suspect most of the loony left will learn a lesson from this. They have become a liability by putting themselves in danger, but this will not stop it from happening in the future.
Still, as foolish as these four are for getting themselves in this situation, it is sad, because they do not deserve to be in such a situation. Though I disagree with their stand on the war (and their methodology in conveying it), terror must be defeated to ensure that these four and the millions of others are able to speak their minds without the fear of tyranny restricting them.
