One Damn Thing After Another



An audiotape attributed to Iraq's most feared terrorist lashed out yesterday at Sunni Muslim clerics for not speaking out against U.S. attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In the tape posted yesterday on an Islamic website, Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi condemned the "silence" of Muslim religious figures, saying they have "let us down in the darkest circumstances.'

The article goes on to report, without comment, that two clerics from the Association of Muslim Scholars which opposed the reduction of Fallujah were assasinated.

I have occassionally commented that the Americans are not nearly ruthless enough to be an Imperial power. which I think is true. But I also think that the iraqis have had more than enough of the murderous activities of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and are fed up with the clerics who seem intent on supporting him. and the Iraqis can be very ruthless indeed.
