Im being pedantic but I feel there is a slight error in the thread title, The terrorist group in question is called 'Al-Qaeda in Iraq'. When you
say '2 al-Qaida leader in Iraq' it changes the meaning somewhat.
Of course, this small point could be put down to pure semantics, but it brings forth the bigger issue of who these people really are, and what their
link is to the actual 'Al-Qaeda'. On this point, we see many of these splinter groups with their names, taking hostages and publicly taking
responsability for terrorists attacks and kidnappings.
And the big problem in Iraq now is the division of Sunni and Shiites, like in Baghdad the people are relocating to be amongst their own, to feel safe.
Thats not solely down to these terrorists groups, its down to lawlessness and that elements of both the Sunni and Shiite communities are taking up
arms. Thus, I believe this will have no dramatic effect on whatever is happening in Iraq, you say war.
Thats another thing I think is skewed, people calling whats happening in Iraq, a war on terror, Im sure Iraqi's are really happy its happening in
Iraq, I doubt many would say it is a war on terror though.
