Iraq's PM Iyad Allawi has announced a limited amnesty for anti-government rebels on Saturday and extended an olive branch to cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, whose fighters have staged an uprising in various Iraqi cities. The long-delayed amnesty, that would last for 30 days, does not include anybody who has murdered, raped, looted or been involved in destroying government buildings.


Iraq Issues Amnesty to Insurgents

This law is directed toward individuals who have committed minor crimes and have not yet been apprehended or prosecuted ...," Allawi said.

"This order has been established to allow citizens to rejoin the civil society and participate in the reconstruction of their country instead of wasting their lives pointlessly toward a lost cause."

Ya know, this just makes me sick. I mean this sick bastard is out there murdering coalition forces, not to mention countless innocent iraqi civiillians and cops. And then all of a sudden the guy says "Wait a tick! I need a seize fire, so i can get some more ammo!" The guy has done it twice already. What really makes me mad is the fact that IF we wanted to take this guy out, with CIA or whatnot, we could certainly do it (without blowing up tons of buildings he is in). Yet, because of POLITICS getting in the way, nobody has the guts. If i had it my way, this sick bastard would have his brains blown out by the CIA. Simple as that.
