I have a question to ask the leaders of the Philippines.

How do you sleep at night?

Even the biased Associated Press admits that the cause of the wave of kidnappings in Iraq is the craven withdrawl of Filipino troops.

I don't have anything against the Philippines or the Filipino truck driver that was released because of the Filipino pullout, but was the life of that one person worth all the misery and death that 'saving' him caused?

Speaking of that truck driver, I wonder how he is taking the news of events in Iraq. We last saw being reunited with his family and very happy, what will his mental state be when he sees what his release cost the rest of the world or at least the families of the current kidnap victims. If I were in his place, I would be wondering what makes my life so valuable that (depending on how you see it) dozens or millions of people have to suffer so that I can continue exchanging oxygen for carbon dioxide. I really feel sorry for him. His government put this burden on his shoulders and now he has no choice but to live with it.

UPDATE: From LGF poster K.:
Scott Santis has a cartoon out on this that is online at Birmingham News.
