'EXTREME military action'

"I have personally written our President, George W. Bush and asked him to consider EXTREME military action if [missing American] Natalee [Holloway] is not returned now," writes a Fox viewer, just one of many whose email was mistakenly sent to the News Hounds, who reproduce a number for your enjoyment and edification. "Its about time that Americans cleaned up the carribean and stopped the drug running and white slavery you are well known for. You are all communist sympathisers and need to have your backside kicked. RETURN NATALEE NOW, OR ELSE.

*** ***, USA" (News Hounds)
