The US has finally adopted tactics used successfully by Israel (for more info on that: here, here):
On Thursday, September 23, US forces resorted to targeted assassination to dispose of Abu Anas al-Shami, a senior aide of the Jordanian al Qaeda mastermind, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, in Baghdad.
His real identity, we reveal here, was Omar Yusef Juma’a, a Palestinian terrorist operations expert from the West Bank town of Tulkarm. DEBKAfile’s counter-terror sources report that al-Shami was killed by an American missile in Baghdad’s Shiite slum district, Sadr City.
The increased violence seen in Iraq recently is a direct result of increased American and Iraqi troop activity in targeting the insurgent terrorists and their desperate attempts to derail the US election. They are aided and abetted, I might add, by the US Media, which seems incapable of putting any story into perspective -- especially those that might be damning to Bush. I mean, come on!
The Media and the Kerry Campaign are even acting as if Prime Minister Allawi is just a "US puppet" and that anything he says about the situation in Iraq is open to question and should be ignored; hile John Kerry's perspective --someone who hasn't even ever been in Iraq--is supposed to be more "realistic". GIVE ME A BREAK.
It is definitely time to get serious with the terrorists in Iraq. Isolate them and kill them. Hopefully Abu Anas al-Shami is the first of many we send to paradise.
UPDATE: This seems like good news, too.
