Time for everybody to pull out......and leave all the weapons so they can use them on each other.......
French hostage threatened in video
(CNN) -- The Arabic-language TV network Al-Arabiya aired video Wednesday of a French engineer held captive in Iraq and said his captors threatened to kill him unless France ends its "illegitimate presence" in the country.
The hostage, seated and flanked by two armed men, said: "My name is Bernard. I am 52 years old. I am from France, from Lyon. I work in the humanitarian field as an engineer for water projects for two years now.
"I am sorry for everything that has happened to everyone who tried to come to my aid. I want to thank all those who are trying to help me. Thanks to my family and I apologize for the problems that I may have caused them."
The man doesn't mention his last name. But earlier this month, a French engineer named Bernard Planche was kidnapped in Baghdad's Mansour neighborhood, one of many high-profile kidnappings in the area.
The French Foreign Ministry said Planche was working for AACCESS, a non-governmental organization. France has no troops in Iraq, and it opposed the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.
According to police, witnesses said gunmen pulled the man from a vehicle in front of his residence.
Al-Arabiya said a brigade called Surveillance for Iraq claimed responsibility for the kidnapping. It said the engineer lived in Mansour for two years and works on a water project in eastern Baghdad.
The militants are demanding the French government end its "illegitimate presence" in Iraq or the hostage will be killed, the news station said.

what I have always found laughable is the idea that "well, if we dont' get involved, the mean ole' ogre will leave us alone"
what a joke! What an absolute joke. MOW-RAWNS.
I hope this frenchman gets let go without injury, but I hope equally that France will open up their eyes.

This French guy is an engineer apparently trying to help the water situation in Iraq - why would they want to harm him? Even if the War was not going on - he is an educated man trying to help by offering his serices to another nation. This is rediculous - I'll pray for him and his family... this kinda thing makes me sick...

probably a bunch of redneck village idiots that though it would be cool to be insurgents so they snatched the first foreign looking dude they could.
this is what the french should do.
