Forræderi

London Times kunne for et par dage siden fortælle, hvordan det er lykkedes Europæiske lande at finansiere de folkemordere, venstrefløjen godt kan lide at kalde "oprørere" i Irak. Fra Deutsche Welle:

"Our principle is that the government rejects ransom payments," Reinhard Silberberg, the head of the German foreign ministry's team responsible for such matters told the Leipziger Volkszeitung. "The government doesn't let itself be blackmailed."

France and Italy, both of whom had hostages freed in the past year, have made similar statements.

But now, documents unearthed by the London Times show the three countries approved of payments worth $45 million (34 million euros) to free nine hostages in Iraq.

Anger over payments

The paper reported that the documents, held by security officials in Baghdad involved in hostage negotiations, show the governments involved paid between $2.5 million and $10 million per hostage in the past two years.

That includes an alleged $3 million for Ostloff, $5 million for Braunlich and Nitzschke from Germany; $10 million for journalist Florence Aubenas and $15 million for journalists Christian Chesnot and Georges Malbrunot from France, released in June 2005 and December 2004 respectively; and $6 million for Guiliana Segrena and $5 million for aid volunteers Simona Pari and Simona Torretta from Italy, who were freed in March 2005 and September 2004 respectively.


Selv om en Kalashnikov i Irak er tredoblet i pris det sidste stykke tid er 45$ millioner stadig nok til, hvis man har lyst, at bevæbne 150.000 mand. Og hvad er logikken lige i at sende soldater til landet, når man samtidig financierer modstanderen? For ikke at snakke om, at de personer man så løskøber øjeblikkeligt begynder at drive propaganda for deres gidseltagere (Simona Pari og Simona Torretta er eksempler - jeg gider ikke engang finde et link til Giuliana Sgrenas udgydelser).

Ingen penge til terroristerne, tak.
