Here we go again; AQ kidnaps 3 Turks, threaten beheading in 72 hours

Al Qaeda terrorists tied to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi have kidnapped three Turkish nationals in Iraq and they have threatened to behead them in 72 hours if Turkey does not withdraw their workers from Iraq.

The kidnapping victims were seen in a video shown this afternoon on Al Jazeera, crouching before three gunmen.

This crap is getting old. Patience among all for this crap is wearing thin.

The report of the abduction came hours before President Bush was to arrive in Turkey for a NATO summit, which will focus on winning the alliance's help in establishing security in Iraq.

Gee . . . I thought Muslims weren't to be targeted, right? And what are they thinking - trying to piss off the Turks?
