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

"The troops are coming out," the source said. Some 500 of Britain's 5,500 soldiers in Iraq are stationed at the Basra palace and are expected to be pulled back to an airport on the city's outskirts. Link
