Al Qaeda bigwig killed in Iraq
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, May 03, 2007

I've purposely held off on this since there's been some dispute about whether or not the person killed was indeed a senior AQ operative.
The U.S. military said on Thursday it had killed a top al Qaeda operative in Iraq whom it accused of involvement in the kidnapping of American journalist Jill Carroll, peace activist Tom Fox and other foreigners.

U.S. military spokesman Major-General William Caldwell said Muharib Abdul Latif al-Jubouri was the "senior minister of information" for al Qaeda in Iraq.

Interior Ministry spokesman Brigadier-General Abdul-Kareem Khalaf said Jubouri was also Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, the leader of the self-styled Islamic State in Iraq, a Qaeda-led group which has claimed many major attacks in the country.

Caldwell told a news conference that Jubouri was killed north of Baghdad on Tuesday, as part of an offensive against al Qaeda called "Operation Rat Trap."
I do love it when a well-named operation is successful.

Well we continue to kill Iraqi’s in this fruitless endeavour. Mayhap you can’t see the pointlessness of it McQ even after 4 years, but the American People can.

I don’t believe that American forces killing people in Iraq can ever bring any form of stability to this troubled nation. Only the withdrawl of US forces and the insertion of a UN/Multi-lateral force can achieve anything, namely that Iraqi’s killing Iraqis will bring stabilty and peace to Iraq.

AQ in Iraq, but that’s just not possible!!!

or so I hear anyway.

I hear sending pink unicorns in or threatening to broadcast the view in IRaq can accomplish the same.

According to an unnamed college professor, we’re helping the terrorists by being in Iraq.

Let’s continue helping them this way.

So is the AQI recruiting poster...

"Come to Iraq, Fight Americans, and Die a Martyr"

Of course, it’s guys like Muharib Abdul Latif al-Jubouri, that need to be taken out to seriously degrade AQI’s capabilities.

Oh, sure, you take out a top leader, and all the rats are faced with the choice to "use it or loose it" with regard to their current resources.

I expect there was good deal of intel gained from this operation and we’ll be seeing more AQI cells being taken out in the coming weeks.

In this case it’s not just any old Iraqi, it’s an operational leader. Suppose the Brits or Frogs had taken out Adolph in say 1935. That would have saved the world a lot of trouble. Pawns are expendable, but it looks like this time we got the Queen or at least a Rook.

Well please note that for everyone we kill another takes his place...how can we develop trust and a stable relationship in order to negotiate when we keep killing their leaders!? This is INSANE! We simply MUST stop killing AQ leaders in Iraq and open a dialogue between ourselves and the insurgents/freedom fighters, our goal must be the establishment of a National Reconciliation Coalition Government of Iraq, that brings everyone into the mix and ends the violence.

I belive that the immediate withdrawl of US forces and the substituioon of a UN force and UN negotiation team is the ONLY way to achieve the degree of stability that Iraq needs. Look at Haiti, the Balkans, and the DRC, they’re stable....and we can do the same thing for Iraq.

Killing an evil SOB is always a cause for celebration no matter what you think of the battle plan. Savor the moment!

We simply can not kill them all, within an acceptable budgetary allotment, so we MUST negotiate. I can think of no better alternative than the UN, possibly multi-party talks between Iraq, Syria and Iran hosted by the UN would be the best policy. I say look at Oslo and the Sri Lankan negotiations to see what 3rd party mediation can achieve!

You can’t be serious! Oslo gave us a terror state in the West Bank with Arafat, the father of modern terrorism, as its leader. There is nothing to negotiate between savages and civilized people. You seem to have a problem with killing or doing so with efficient means … I don’t. However that’s a mute point because with the proper policy we actually won’t have to fight or rarely have to fight.

We’ve had 50 years of appeasement. It has failed. We need to find a new policy.

Heh...

You might as well add Iran, NK and Syria to that list as well. All very stable countries - with incredibly toxic intentions.

J-Curve FTW.

Yes! And we can thank Jimmy Carter for his contributions to Iran and North Korea. Carter’s a man who very much deserves his Nobel Prize; in fact I think he should have had one much earlier: his effort in attaining peace between Egypt and Israel, his refusal to support the Shah . . . the women of Iran are now free to wear the burka . . . they no longer suffer under the patriarchy of Western cultural debasement . . .

For that matter, his humane negotiations with North Korea.

You can’t be serious! Arafat has a Nobel Peace Prize. He was a close confidant of Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. No one could possibly take such criticism of such a grat man seriously.
