The abduction derby takes a wrong turn 

The news from Iraq tonight is that kidnapping is still very much in vogue - not that it should be a great surprise to those who remember to whole "human shields" fiasco during the first Gulf War.

Apparently, seven Chinese were kidnapped, in order to pressure the Chinese government to withdraw its troops from Iraq... oops, sorry. I'm not sure why they were kidnapped. Maybe the Fedayin scumbags were after some more Japanese, but are so racist that all Asians looked the same to them?
