Al Qaeda in Iraq regrouping

'U.S. officials said al Qaeda's global second-in-command, Atiyah abd al-Rahman -- a Libyan who played a key role in managing ties between the leadership and al Qaeda in Iraq -- was killed in Pakistan last week.

But al Qaeda's resurgence, along with Shi'ite militias often funded and armed by neighbor Iran, represents a dangerous sectarian mix for Iraq as Syria seethes next door and U.S. forces aim to leave by year-end.

"There was a thought that al Qaeda has ended in Iraq. No, they regrouped and now the third generation of al Qaeda is working actively to reorganize itself with weapons and training," Lieutenant-General Hussein Kamal, Iraq's deputy interior minister for intelligence, told Reuters.'

The ones who acutely need to fuck off are the 47,000 worshippers of the cross

Dolly,

There are no "cross-worshippers" in Nigeria, Algeria, or Pakistan, yet all of these countries have seen dozens of people slaughtered by suicide bombers in the past week.

Why do you and your associates want to kill so many Muslims during Ramadan?

In Pakistan there is a corrupt government which launches civil war against its own population in exchange for bribes.
