They have kidnapped, and are threatening to kill, his father, beaten his brothers unconscious, beheaded one of his relatives, and gouged out, and boiled, the eyes of his officers.

So how's your day going?
Militants had just kidnapped and dragged his ailing 80-year-old father through the streets. They also beat his brothers until they collapsed. Forty of his men were killed and several were beheaded.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Could this be a U.S. led judeo/christian conspiracy to behead and boil the eyes of all Iraqi police?

Or could this be the insurgency's Allah inspired way of letting the Iraqi collaborators see the truth?

In cases like this [SIZE=4]Ignorance is bliss[/SIZE].

Iraq's are killing Iraq's. So this is what a US-led Occupation has produced. To me Informing the Iraq' civillians would have been a better course of action. Killing Al Jazerra television doesn't help matters. Americans should be using Al-Jazeera to spread the message of what they're there to do.

No doubt Al-Jazera would spread a message.

Somehow, however, I get the distinct feeling that it would not coincide with western news agencies' viewpoint. Al-Jazera might even place a good "spin" on the octogenerian clobbering, eyeball boiling, insurgent hijinks.

What a mess this has turned into.

Najaf Fighting Intensies Amid Peace Push (sic)

BAGHDAD, Iraq Aug. 17, 2004 A U.S. warplane bombed near Najaf's vast cemetery as fighting with Shiite militants intensified Tuesday. An Iraqi delegation brought a peace proposal aimed at ending the standoff in the holy city, which has marred a Baghdad conference meant to be a landmark step toward democracy.

Looks like these fighters simply want to go out in a blaze of martyrdom.
