On 21 November, tragedy struck for a soldier here in Camp Slayer, Iraq. SPC D’s beloved companion has been kidnapped and is now being held for ransom by mujahadeen members. Teddy Bear, or just Teddy, was reported missing at 2000 hours local time. D then discovered a ransom note that had been left, along with a picture of Teddy at an undisclosed location. The not demanded that all teddy’s must leave Iraq immediately or there would be severe consequences. D looked everywhere, but was unable to find a trace of her beloved Teddy. She had this to say about the unfortunate incident “My fucking Teddy’s gone and I want him back.” Today, she received another picture, showing Teddy in the hands of a merciless terrorist holding a knife to his throat (http://www.geocities.com/rhiannonmesa/ Bearknapping.html) As of press time there have been no further developments, but we can only hope and pray that Teddy will be returned soon and safely to his owner.
Note: Yes, Her Teddy was kidnapped, but NO I don't have anything to do with it. I just am finding it an amusing story and will continue coverage. :-D
