Iraq: Mysterious group threatens al-Zarqawi

in General Discussion edited January 2014

The Arabic-language TV network Al-Arabiya said it received a taped statement from an organization that calls itself the Rescue Group warning al-Zarqawi and his followers to leave Iraq or face the consequences.

One masked militant read a statement denouncing the actions by al-Zarqawi and his followers as hurtful to Iraq, particularly the kidnapping of foreigners.


very strange but good news for the US?, i think so

    Rarely is vigilantism good news, but it would be nice to see Zarqawi served up to the proper authorities on a silver platter.

Definitely bad news for those of a reductionist bi-polar mindset though - if this group use guerilla or 'terrorist' tactics yet still commit actions that help the US then the black/white western fundies will face an existential dilemma that might require an adjustment of their weltanschaung.

    I guess they won't be able to assimilate or register that though so maybe it won't matter.

    Oh, what a quandry is afoot!

    Once again, the liberal web of twisted circular logic rears its ugly head. A miliant group that targets TERRORISTS is not our friend? Doesn't it depend on what the target it?

    It's all so nuanced I can't keep it straight.
