Bounty hunters are `holy war' infiltrators moving into Iraq
The Western Mail (Wales) ^ | Apr 7, 2003 | Staff

The Western Mail - The National Newspaper Of Wales
HUNDREDS of foreign fighters have infiltrated southern Iraq to target and kill British troops in one of the final major showdowns of the war, intelligence officers have discovered.

Young fighters from Syria, Lebanon and Palestine have joined the ranks of the Iraqi regime's die-hards to fight against the Royal Marines and 7 Armoured Brigade around the besieged city of Basra.

Many are motivated by religion and appear to have answered Saddam Hussein's call for jihad - or holy war - against western forces.

But others have come in search of the huge bounties the regime has offered for the heads of British soldiers and pilots, tip-offs and enemy prisoner interrogation has gleaned.

Who's going to pay--Saddam? And his dinars are definitely dropping in value, minute by minute.

They never learn, do they?

I can still see in my mind's eye all the Pakistanis that were lining up to cross the border into Afghanistan to join the Taliban and Bin Laden -- and how fast they came tearing back across the border when they realized that they were walking right into a buzz saw.

I say bring all the Moslem bad-a%sses into Iraq, and let's get rid of them once and for all while we've got our boys together and weapons calibrated.

This is wonderful news. We are locked and loaded. If they want to enter the Turkey Shoot then that is great news. It will save us from chasing them all over the world. C'mon Abdul, c'mon Mohamed, c'mon all! Time to show your worth! Infidels in your land! Come and get some! Bring all your friends.
Those of you interested in peace, let us finish here and get you guys set up to enjoy to enjoy a stable, free form of government. Then we'll leave.

As long as they are there, let's offer a few bucks for scalps of Saddam and gang. Maybe they can even find the missing and return them alive. We can see what a buck buys and we got plenty more than Saddam does.

Great news!

A hundred years ago, the Mahdi gathered young fanatics from all over Islamic world, the Brits mowed them down with artillery and machine guns, and the Islamic world had peace, for a couple of decades.

This gives us a great opportunity to do it again.

(OK - yes, I'm joking. But I'm beginning to wonder if so long as the Islamic world's marriage arrangements results in a significant surplus of angry young single men, we won't have to slaughter the lot of them, every generation, in order to maintain peace. I'd like to think that there were less-bloody alternatives. But I'm not optimistic.)

The combat death rate of 2000 Iraqis to every Coalition soldier is not high enough. Send in thousands more untrained, mindless fanatics, and soon we will have a ratio of 3000 to one. Perhaps more.

Why don't we post a price on their heads, and make sure the Shi'ia and the others who hate Saddam know about it?

50 guys on a bus, a slow moving target? I hope our intel is tracking these buses and I hope they meet one of our C-130 gunships or drone fired Hellfire missles. Waste them all.

Do they think they'll actually make it to Baghdad? Why don't they just throw themselves off their local roof and avoid the bus ride?
