"More Suicide Attacks" ("Just the beginning" says Iraq's vice president)

'MORE SUICIDE ATTACKS'

The suicide bombing which killed four American troops is "just the beginning" Iraq's vice president has said.

The attack, described by Iraqi TV as the "Blessed beginning on the road of martyrdom" against the US, was the first instance of a suicide bombing since the war began

But Iraqi vice president Taha Yassin Ramadan has threatened more will follow.

He said: "This is just the beginning. You'll hear more pleasant news later.

"It will be routine military policy. We will use any means to kill our enemy in our land and we will follow the enemy into its land.

"The United States will turn the whole world to martyrs against it. What do they expect? The Arabs and Muslims are not allowed to develp missiles and bombs as powerful as theirs."

The bombing happened on Saturday at a road checkpoint north of Najaf.

US military Captain Andrew Wallace said the four victims were part of the 1st Brigade, 3rd Infantry Divison.

Sky News reporter Collin Brazier said the driver of a taxi had pulled up at the checkpoint.

"Two soldiers went to the front of the car, two to the rear. The driver beckoned to them and there was an explosion. All the soldiers were killed," said Brazier.

"This marks a significant change of tactics."

The suicide bomber, named as non-commissioned army officer Ali Jaafar al-Noamani, has been awarded two posthumous medals by Saddam Hussein.

"This marks a significant change of tactics."

There has been a corresponding change of tactics by those manning checkpoints. 3 drivers have been shot trying similar things since then. ABC Radio news this morning.

How do say in Arabic: Halt, step away from that vehicle(if there is one) and remove all your clothes or you will be shot dead?

Where's Saddam and all his bluster about the Iraqi army winning this war and humiliating the US?

Why does he have to send one of his p!$$ boys now? Hmmm?

I can understand why we want to spare as many civilians as possible, since the whole purpose of our being there is to get rid of Saddam and liberate the Iraqi people. But this PC crap must stop. I'm all for protecting the innocent, but how can our troops figure out who's the good guys and who's the bad guys? I'm at a point now where I feel that "if it moves, shoot it." Never thought I'd be thinking that way, but I am now. Our troops are dealing with the lowest scum of the earth. Sure hope everyone's praying for our troops -- they need all the prayers they can get. Sorry for rambling, there's no one to talk to here and I just had to get that off my chest. Let's hope for better days ahead :)

Let me calrify: If they think that these cowardly acts of death helps their cause, they're wrong. It will make the entire world demand (out of fear) that they all be corraled into a single country and kept contained; thus losing all status in the world of Humanity.

IE: They will be thought of as animals. That's the last thing Arabs want.

I guess that answers the question about whether or not Iraq supports terrorism.

VP Ramadan needs a serious attitude adjustment.

Perhaps SF`s can accommodate him very soon along those lines.

Remind me what this war is supposed to be all about again?

THIS JUST IN: "Based on their murders of fellow Iraqis,
and based upon their shooting of Iraqis fleeing Saddam who are seeking freedom,
and based upon their recent suicide attacks murdering Americans and other Coalition heroes
the EU and UN have nominated the remaining terrorists of Iraqi Baath Party
for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2004."


......[ /sarcasm ] I hope.
