WASHINGTON: Terrorists in the Abu Musab Zarqawi network in Iraq are specifically trying to kidnap an American female service member to further horrify the US public, senior defence officials were on Thursday quoted as saying.

The word is being passed within the network on the importance of taking one or more women hostages, The Washington Times reported quoting two senior US defence officers.

...and possibly the biggest, IMO, why girls should not be

the heat is off to some degree.
Hate to think of a nice lady soldier falling into the hands of those animals. Sad

Another example of irresponsible reporting...

as this has been known for some time BUT it hasn't been bandied about as there are more than the two known networks plotting such and the others had not been concentrating on it but likely will now that they have been made fully aware of the implications.

Hopefully it will give ALL of them reason to REALLY think about ALL of the implications with a nation that insists on more than equal treatment for women.

....that the pictures of Englund and Harmon (female US
military) in the Abu Ghraib incident, haven't given these
animals something to work with if they capture a woman ?

By animals did you mean Englund and Harmon or those who are alleged to be planning to kidnap women?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
