Despite Italy's attempt to flee from Iraq like a zebra using all it might to escape the jaws of a lion, al Qaeda still wants Italian blood. Because
of internal weakness within the political atmosphere of Italy, the Italian government has chosen to withdraw troops in September. The fierce three
thousand Italian troops are now going to be targeted by the al Qaeda organization.
DUBAI (Reuters) - Iraq al Qaeda wing said on Wednesday Italian troops "humbled" by insurgent attacks would still be targeted despite Rome's plans to
start pulling out from Iraq in September, according to an Internet statement.
"We tell those whose might was humbled in Iraq and we tell Italy, the worshipper of the cross, that we will continue to fire bullets at you," said al
Qaeda Organization for Holy War in Iraq, led by Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
"The longer Italy stays in Iraq the greater will be its losses," the group's military leader said in a statement posted on Web sites used by Islamic
militants. It could not be independently verified.

The reasoning behind this al Qaeda statement is obviously clear. The al Qaeda organization is trying to establish itself as a legitimate force to be
reckoned with in political atmosphere. If al Qaeda insurgents find one fierce needle in the haystack than our melodramatic friends across the pond
will shrivel up and scream, "Nient'altro! Più guerra. Diamo in su, Al Qaeda. Siamo cuori di spurgo disperati." Thus helping al Qaeda establish itself
as a powerful force which it isn't without some feeble minds and a plane. Although the Arab world won't see it that way, they will see a way to
influence their cultural beliefs into western culture through alternative means, terrorism.
