BAGHDAD (Reuters) – U.S. warplanes launched strikes in western Iraq on Tuesday which the U.S. military said killed an al Qaeda militant named Abu Islam among other fighters, and which a hospital source said killed at least 47 people.
“Intelligence leads Coalition forces to believe that Abu Islam and several of his associates were killed in the air strike,” a U.S. military spokeswoman said in Baghdad.
A hospital official in Qaim, near the Syrian border, told Reuters at least 47 people died in the U.S.-led strikes. Mohammed al-Aani said 35 people died in one house and another 12 in a strike on a second house.
Hmm. Near the Syrian border, were they? How very odd. Wonder if any of the libs who’ve been using the “Iraq is a distraction from the WoT” excuse for their snarling Bushate are ready yet for a jaunt into Syria? Speaking for myself, I can only say: well done, guys — and you can take that as both a pat on the back and a request for another heaping helping of Fricassee de Terrorist con la Napalme. More, and faster, please, before the “Loyal” Opposition has time to fill their lungs with air to shriek about how this latest American victory is actually a defeat.
