Unafraid blogger offers self in exchange for Iraqi Prisoner
It's amazing isn't it. Hundreds and hundreds of blogs. Perhaps millions and millions of blogs. Certainly thousands and thousands of blogs. A lot of bloggers anyway, all sitting on their hands, waiting nervously, quietly, to hear news from certain places.
I only can guess the silence surrounding Khalid's arrest may stem from fear of association. It is not much different from days of old really is it. Somebody disappears and nobody else wants to know.
What kind of democracy is it when people behave exactly as they might under a dictatorship.
In any case, being a fearless blogger I have a proposition to make. Guessing my exact location is probably known by now. By whoever possesses Khalid's hard-drive. Or ought I publish my home address, just to verify, and a pick-up time? It would really be no trouble and I don't mind being deported. My ancestors were used to keeping a bag packed "just in case" and, having inherited the habit, I'm all ready.
I offer myself, in exchange, publicly, for Khalid Jarrar.
Yours in chivalry,
