The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hostages' bodies 'found in Yemen'

    At least seven foreign hostages seized in Yemen, including at least one child, have been found dead, officials say.

    They are thought to be from a group of nine foreigners, three of them children, who were kidnapped last week in a mountainous northern area.

    The group comprised seven Germans, a British national and a South Korean.

    One report says all nine hostages have been killed - but the deaths have not been confirmed by officials in Berlin, London and Read more...

    WTF is going on in this world...?
  2. Kidnappings in Yemen used to be quite civilized affairs...
  3. Who on Earth takes their children with them when they go to work in the wilds of places like Yemen?
  4. Hear what you're saying, but for years we used to take families to Northern Ireland and that was operational..
  5. Slightly different mate, at least the IRA (generally) left our families alone, these people have no mercy for anyone and even the biggest half wit must have known that nowadays it is not safe for male adults, never mind women and children
  6. Second attempt at a post;

    Yemen is north of Somalia where the pirate fcukwits live, along with Al Shabaab and the other associated insurgents from Al Qaeda .

    It naturally follows that anyone around the Horn is proper fcuked when you get captured.
  7. Probably a few more do-gooders who met the harsh reality of the world.
  8. Yes.
  9. I once met a couple who were 'holidaying' in Kabul post-invasion, either completely oblivious to the threat or thinking that they'd be spared because they were handing out sweets to the kids...
  10. It seems that no demands were made by the hostage takers and that it appears to be just a case of cold blooded murder. Maybe they were used as live Civ Pop for a insurgent mission yet to unfold in Afghanistan...
  11. If you put your head into the mouth of a tiger....
  12. Take it from me, these feckers ain't very complicated or advanced in terms of civilisation. There is a definite casual attitude to death and killing in Yemen and they ain't even very political, its just tribe or bust
