I thought they has been on a holy war since the 9/11 with anything that is not muslin.

Someone should tell these fine upstanding members of society that the same rhetoric over and over again is nothing more than irritating already.

We will kill the infidels. We will kill the infidels. No, really, we will kill the infidels. Seriously!

Ok we get it. I don't know why they insist on declaring this holy war a hundred thousand damn times. You don't like us, we know.

The latest is that "Shia Iraqi militants have fought running battles with US-led security forces in the holy city of Najaf and in Basra and the capital, Baghdad." And a U.S helicopter was shot down over Najaf, and its crew injured then another circled and picked up these troops. Also At least 10 people, including one US soldier, died in the fighting.
