the 4 British contractors in Iraq have been held hostage for over 1 year now and it turns out one of the poor buggers has commited suicide. We all have been told by the goverment that behind the scenes there have been negotiations but according to their captors there has been hardly any dialogue between them and the powers that be. Their demands are simple, release 9 iraqi prisoners in Basra and the lads will be free to come home. I for one could'nt give a toss about the famous cliche ''We don't negotiate with terroists'' and i would rather see these boys come home, enough is enough and i could'nt give a toss about 9 prisoners in Basra either. Its's a fair deal in my eyes and in war you win some and you lose some. Everybody wins in this case and everybody goes home. Yeah theres a huge stigma attached to Security contractors and they all knew the risks when they went there to work but these are guy's that once put their lives on the line for HM armed forces and they deserve more. Fecking no marks for Brown and co.
