:rant: Just figured I'd put my 2 bits in concerning the Phillipino military leaving Iraq. First, I think this is a very cowardly move on their part. For crying out loud they only have like 50 people there. Now, they are packing their bags (when the heat gets turned up) and are leaving. Not to mention, they've done exactly what the terrorists are wanting. If I were a terrorist (I'm not), I would then make sure and especially target the Phillipino people who might be working there, because I know I will get some results from their government. I think their decision to leave is going to absolutely back fire on them. I read one report that said that the insurgents are still going to keep him as a "P.O.W.". Lets not forget about the other guy who already got his head chopped off. I just don't understand what they think they are going to gain out of leaving Iraq. As far as I'm concerned they look like a bunch of damn pansies.
