Al Qaeda continues to kill Iraqis

'A car bomb near a Shiite mosque in a village north of Baghdad exploded among crowds of people on Wednesday, killing at least 13 and wounding 24 others, the police said.

Residents of Abe Sayeda, a predominately Shiite village located in a heavily Sunni area, blamed the bombing on Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, the homegrown terrorist group, which has remained active in the province, Diyala.

An American soldier was killed there on Wednesday after a roadside bomb exploded as his vehicle passed, the United States military said in a statement.

The bomb site lies near a Shiite mosque, a health center and shops, and was crowded with people venturing outside Wednesday evening after the day’s heat had dissipated somewhat.

“Al Qaeda is hiding in many areas surrounding this village and the families there support them,” said Abdul Rachman al-Tamimi, whose clothes were bloody from helping the injured into ambulances.'

"Iraqis" is not a good description of the target, nor is "Al Qaeda" of the perpetrator. They disbanded their group in 2006, and the Islamic State includes more than the former AQM but excludes Ansar al-islaam.

Secondly, calling the collaborators "Iraqis" is like calling Hitler "a famous book author."
It may be literally true, but it's not accurate enough and that's not the relevant and defining part.

The victims are not Welsh, or Chinese, or Paraguayan. I think they are (or were) Iraqis.

If they were Shia by religion, so are most Iraqis, and that is not an excuse for murder.

General Ricardo Sanchez, who is commander of U.S. ground forces in Iraq:

"This is what I would call a terrorist magnet, where America, being present here in Iraq, creates a target of opportunity... But this is exactly where we want to fight them. ...This will prevent the American people from having to go through their attacks back in the United States"

GW Bush:

"First, we're staying on the offense against the terrorists, fighting them overseas so we do not have to face them here at home."

"As the author of the much-mocked “flypaper theory” — the phrase I used to describe the implicit strategy behind the U.S. invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan — I am more and more persuaded it has worked. All ground indications are that large numbers of Islamist terrorists who would otherwise remain dangerously under cover, not only across the region but in Europe and elsewhere, are irresistibly drawn towards these theatres of action, where they sooner or later get themselves killed."

One wonders whether the mangled Iraqi survivors of the American invasion and American "strategy" of drawing every terrorist in the region to Iraq, are grateful.

I'm thinking ... not.

Al Qaeda, or the Islamic State, or whatever the terrorists call themselves, have killed many times more Iraqis than Americans.

The last time Americans were killed in Diyala was June 11:

"A car bomb killed two American soldiers and wounded six Friday in the still-troubled province of Diyala, the military said, the first U.S. casualties in a renewed uptick of violence over the last week.

Two Iraqi civilians and a policeman were also killed, and 24 Iraqis, two of them policemen, were wounded in the 8:30 a.m. attack in the town of Jalula. The blast came as a joint Iraqi-U.S. patrol was responding to appeals for help from residents embroiled in a family feud that they feared would turn violent, according to officials in the area north of Baghdad.

U.S. military spokesman Maj. Lee Peters said that the soldiers had gotten out of their vehicles when the bomb exploded, and that authorities were still investigating whether it was a suicide attack."

I doubt any of the victims of this attack had anything to do with the US invasion. The wahhabi-minded 3arab jarab really are the slime of humanity.

Maybe we should try getting along with these Salafi guys. How hard could it be? We could behead our voters. Who needs 'em? Democracy is a trick of the devil, after all. Flog any woman who won't wear full body armor, or who tries to leave the house without a male escort. Torch any female who can read or write. Might as well behead smokers, drinkers, and anyone who ever ate a salad with cucumbers and tomatoes while we're at it. Vegetable orgies really piss Allah off.

A few simple steps and we might move up from the far enemy to maybe the not-so-far enemy. Install a madrassah graduate as President for Life, and we might even get off their top 10 list. Sure, I would miss my friends, neighbors, and family. I'd miss magazines, TV, the internet, and modern appliances. But hey, at least we could all get along, right?

maury are you still a pussy? Why are you so scared of Muslims? I can spit in your face, but can you say one single word about Islam standing in front of me? No. You cant. And I think deep down you know that which explains your fear and ignorance.

Victory or death, my ass. You'll talk shit for the rest of your worthless life. Burger flipper by day, and internet jihadi by night.

General Sanchez who retired in disgrace after Abu Ghraib?

Bruno said...

He's only one of a long line of disgraceful American leaders during the invasion of Iraq

Bruno's Burning Anus said...

Bruno, of course, is disappointed that the Iraqi people didn't make common cause with the jihadi fanatics who entered Iraq after 2003. Instead, they joined the Iraqi security forces in huge numbers and voted for politicians who supported the US invasion to overthrow Saddam.

In any case, most of Al Qaeda foot soldiers were Iraqi Sunni Arabs who would have been a problem even if Saddam had been overthrown without US help. They are similar to the Afrikaner extremists in South Africa who hate the "kaffirs".

Totally moronic stuff by Bruno above. The fact that America would rather fight Al Qaeda in its Arab homelands doesn't mean America is reponsible for these maniacs killing their fellow muslims. The Al Qaeda hatred of Shias and pro-western muslims is just as great their hatred for America, which is why they are active in countries like Algeria, where there are no US forces.
