If this is what happens to Iraq's friends....

So, Margaret Hassan, the aid worker who married an Iraqi, converted to Islam and devoted 30 years of her life to helping the Iraqi people has been murdered -- although she was spared the horror of a beheading (were her kidnappers perhaps in too much of a rush to escape the Americans?). Surely this demonstrates once and for all that the Iraqi insurgents are not simply motivated by hatred of the American 'occupiers' -- but by hatred of the West and of Westerners, whatever they do. This murder should strike fear into anyone and any nation who thinks that by staying out of Iraq, and by not confronting extremists, they are earning 'immunity from attack.'
