Some Iraqi resistance group say they have kidnapped 2 Australians and will execute them unless we pull out our troops within 24 hours.

Thing is, all our people are accounted for. All 88 Aussies in residence in Baghdad are all fine and good. The men taken werent soldiers, but supposedly security contractors.

Apparently 20 Australians are unregistered and live in Baghdad. Could be one of them

They can be saved if the "religion of peace" would stand up and call for them to be released unharmed under the islamic law of protection. Do you think the muslim community will stand up and save these men? Nope, their bodies will soon be removed from their heads and the silence will continue.
