Iraq terror leader recruits scientists (Al-Qaida in Iraq: 4,000 insurgents dead)
The Beacon Journal & AP ^ | September 28, 2006 | PATRICK QUINN

Posted on 09/28/2006 8:40:02 AM PDT by ikez78

CAIRO, Egypt - The new leader of al-Qaida in Iraq said in an audio message posted on a Web site Thursday that more than 4,000 foreign insurgent fighters have been killed in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. It was believed to be the first major statement from insurgents in Iraq about their losses.

"The blood has been spilled in Iraq of more than 4,000 foreigners who came to fight," said the man, who identified himself as Abu Hamza al-Muhajir - also known as Abu Ayyub al-Masri - the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq. The voice could not be independently identified.

What do you call 4000 dead insurgents?



A good start.

I think 4000 is probably a very optimistic estimate on the part of the terrorists.

Yeah, I think we can probably add a zero to that number.

>>So one might say that Iraq was flypaper for terrorists<<

That's how I've seen it pretty much from the "end" of the war against Saddam.

And on a side note. Iraqi's do not want freedom any more than a three year old wants freedom. It will be at least two generations before they can handle the concept. We are there to stabilize the entire region. Our presence there affected the recent Israel/Lebanon war and it will affect other conflicts in the area as our war on Islam gets ratcheted up - and it most assuredly will.

That is why we are there.

This is going to be VERY long.

Pathetic that our media almost salivates over nearly 3,000 AMerican soldiers dying in Iraq but FAIL to even give one statement as to how many of the enemy has been killed by our fighting men or even of the more thousands of Iraquis who have sacrificed their own lives for their country! Abysmal press!

From the report:
The speaker said "the field of jihad" could provide scientists with an avenue for experimentation.

"The field of jihad (holy war) can satisfy your scientific ambitions, and the large American bases (in Iraq) are good places to test your unconventional weapons, whether biological or dirty, as they call them," he said.

In the recording, al-Masri's also urged Muslims to make Ramadan a "month of holy war" and called for insurgents in Iraq to kidnap Westerners. Sunni Arabs began observing Ramadan in Iraq on Saturday, while Shiites were to begin Monday.

Al-Masri called on insurgents in Iraq to capture Westerners so they could be traded for the imprisoned Egyptian sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, who was convicted in 1995 of conspiring to blow up New York City landmarks.

"I appeal to every holy warrior in the land of Iraq to exert all efforts in this holy month so that God may enable us to capture some of the Western dogs to swap them with our sheik and get him out of his dark prison," the voice on the tape said."

"The blood has been spilled in Iraq of more than 4,000 foreigners who came to fight,"

"...more than..." Let's hope a lot more.

This is a testament to the genius of Rumsfeld. It also suggests that by appearing weak in Iraq, the US was able to attract more than it would if it appeared that we were as strong as we really are.

True, but the leftest view is that the insurgents were not in Iraq before we attacked, but rather, they went to Iraq in response to our attack. My response is BFD, if the insurgents weren't fighting us in Iraq, they would be trying to kill us someplace else like NYC, Chicago, LA, or Boston.

From the profiles I have seen of the rank and file Islamist terror recruit I would say that they are the virgins.

Looks like the insurgents are looking for the WMDS as well and calling on insurgents to attacks our bases in Iraq with 'unconventional weapons'!

Saw an interview with some natives from Afghanistan. They said the Towelaban was better because they had more electricity and water than under the current government. Guess you have to get your priorities right!

I would think you are right. Our military has at least a 1 to 10 kill ratio, and probably more like 1 to 20 or even 1 to 40.
So that would be 30,000 on the lower end and up 120,000 at the high end.

It was believed to be the first major statement from insurgents in Iraq about their losses.

After the main part of the War with Iraq was over. Some of our Freepers with special forces type of training, predicted that Iraq would be like lanterns drawing moths, the al Qaeda scum in Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Jordan.

So over 4000 have rushed into Iraq to be drawn into the "lantern flames" to burn out.

A non Freeper friend, former Green Beret, who consults with our SF people, compared Iraq to a huge electronic bug zapper. He said everytime we are near an electronic bug zapper and hear it Zap a bug, we can imagine that was what just happened to another al Qaeda scumbag in Iraq.

This friend said that every al Qaeda scumbag killed in Iraq or Afghanistan is one less terrorist, who might kill innocent Americans.
