They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Iraqi commandos to launch 'anti-terror operation' in Qa''em

Kuna: Iraqi Chief of Interior Ministry Commandos, Major General Rashid Flaih said on Tuesday that the force will execute an anti-terror sweeping campaign in Qa'em, nearby the Iraqi-Syrian borders, similar to that executed in Tal Afar.

Flaih told reporters that the forces will cordon the town to cut terrorists' supplies in Qa'em and surrounding areas, noting that the Iraqi Commando force will execute the operation instead of the US forces starting on Tuesday.

The Multi-National Force (MNF) announced on Monday that the coalition forces launched accurate air raids on terrorist hideouts in the town of Awash in western Iraq, killing a leader of Al-Qaeda in Karablah, nearby Qa'em.

The MNF said in a press release that Al-Qaeda leader, called Abu Naseer, and 20 others were killed in a house bombed during the raid, noting that Abu Naseer was the insurgents' leader in Karablah and was responsible for facilitating the infiltration of foreign fighters into Iraq. Link

db: OK, so what's the betting that later we will hear from the embedded journalists in London, New York, or Baghdad that the attack on Qa'em is aimed at 'rooting out' the one-legged superhuman terror-monster Zarqawi or his supporters? It's a near-cert.
