Hostages - Forced Iraqi Hospitality?

There was a painful inevitability about it if the suggestion that two Australians have been taken hostage in Iraq proves to be correct. With the nationals of countless other countries being taken hostage, sooner or later it would be Australia's turn. Of course, Australia must stand firm and not let its policy be dictated by terrorist nutters who were obviously neglected as children, in this case the Secret Islamic Army and its northern armed wing, the Horror Brigades (both of whom clearly need to work on their PR strategy, if the names are any guide).

The story is still emerging, but if the central premise is correct then it's going to be a painful couple of days ahead.
