I had wanted to write something today that was delicate and crunchy on the outside while sweet and creamy on the inside. Something light and humorous and carefree. But I just don't have it in me.
New al Qaida leader killed 2 US soldiers
By ASSOCIATED PRESS
The new leader of al-Qaida in Iraq killed two US soldiers who it abducted last week, an umbrella group for Iraqi insurgents said in a Web statement posted Tuesday.
The statement said the two soldiers were "slaughtered" suggesting they had been beheaded by Abu Hamza al-Muhajer. The Arabic word used in the statement, "nahr," is used for the slaughtering of sheep by cutting the throat and has been used in past statements to refer to beheadings.
The authenticity of the claim of responsibility could not be confirmed. It was posted on an Islamic militant Web forum where insurgent groups regularly post statements.
Please, please, please, pray for the families of these men. Pray for all the coalition soldiers and workers in Iraq. And if you don't believe in God, please send these people some good vibes.
Can't people like Murtha and Pelosi see now that we must stay in Iraq until the Iraqis have their own police, army, and government in place to themselves squash terrorists like this like you would a bug?
We HAVE to stay and finish the job.
Terrorists are only interested in one thing. Producing terror in people.
We must stay in Iraq until they are prepared to deal with these people themselves. They have come a long way but aren't there yet.
