Today’s Iraqi puzzler: Who’s Dumber?
1) The Filipino government, for caving into the demands of the Iraqi extremists who threatened to behead a Filipino guy unless the Phillippines pulled out of Iraq.
2) The extremists themselves, for now kidnapping men from India, Kenya, and Egypt and demanding their respective countries pull out of Iraq as well. Note that none of the three countries have troops in Iraq.
I guess it goes to show that giving into the demands of terrorists is a universally bad policy, no matter how ugly the consequences of not giving in may be…
