"Militants abduct a first cousin of Iraqi interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi and two of his family members in Baghdad, reportedly threatening to kill them unless the Falluja siege is lifted."
What are the militants going to do after US forces leave Falluja? They sure can't hide anywhere.
"There are no buildings left anywhere in Falluja. Wake up you militants. You can't hide in Falluja."
Remember..."You can run, but you can't hide"
I know what it means now.
