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.

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.

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?
