One Less Bad Guy

Filed under: Breaking News,Defending America,Terrorism — Sisyphus @ 4:55 am

Looks like there’s one more dead-ender dead in Iraq:

U.S. forces have killed a man identified as the ringleader of the January 20 attack on U.S. troops in Karbala, Iraq, that left five Americans dead, military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell told CNN’s “Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer.”

Sheikh Azhar al-Dulaymi was killed Saturday during an operation in Baghdad’s Sadr City neighborhood, according to an unclassified U.S. military presentation obtained by CNN.

Good riddance. Unfortunately, there’s plenty more where that came from; the good news is that each guy we kill is one less guy we have to kill. Sooner or later, the bad elements of Iraqi and Muslim society will be gone; the people that are left will be able to enjoy the peace and prosperity we’ve won for them. They’re going to owe us big-time, but I’m sure they’ll know that, too. One thing I think we can expect from Iraq is gratitude.

Meanwhile, of course, we’re going to have to do some killing. And I think we should stop tying our hands behind our backs when we go into battle. I think we need to take the bad guys out. If a few innocent bystanders get killed in the process, I’m very sorry, but that’s war. They chose to live with the terrorists nearby, and when you lie down with dogs, you get fleas. If they don’t want to buy it with the bad guys, they should leave. We’ll let them know when it’s safe to come back.

That’s what the liberal media is trying to hide from the American people, but there it is.

  1. The Americans cannot win in Iraq without a drastic change of strategy. Oh, and getting rid of the current Iraqi government. They are completely useless.

  2. “The Americans cannot win in Iraq without a drastic change of strategy. Oh, and getting rid of the current Iraqi government. They are completely useless.”

    I think our strategy is working, but we need more of a commitment from the Iraqis. I think if we kill a few more of the bad guys, the good guys will be more apt to fall in line and help us out. Time will tell, but we have to stay the course.

  4. America is not an aggressive nation. Saddam helped Osama attack us on 9/11, and he was working on WMDs to help Osama the next time. If we hadn’t taken him out, all those moonbat urban havens like New York and San Francisco would probably be radioactive death zones by now.

    Get your facts straight, Razib.

    Some of us can serve better by fighting the morale war here on the homefront.

    I notice you’re not in Iraq either, since you have time to post anti-American diatribes against a patriot doing his small bit to help this country. What’s your excuse?

  7. Sisy, Just so we understand each other, I’m the patriot not you. I’ve been a marine, I’ve seen hell on earth. You are a twit. Our military is painfully understaffed and over committed in a ridiculous war based on lies. They don’t need a cheerleader Sisy, they need participants. War is not a spectator sport, it’s your war, go fight it.

    The War in Iraq is going just fine. If you weren’t watching leftist lies like CNN, you’d know that. You never hear the good news out of Iraq, because the moonbats don’t want you to. Until you wake up to that fact, I feel that my duty is to stay here and educate you and others like you.

    “Why is it so hot in here?”

    Ha ha. Very funny, ghoul.

    No no no… perhaps I didn’t make myself clear.
    Please provide me with specific proof. You say Fox News: What date and program if on TV, and what articles can you link from their website?
    What other programs (with appropriate airing dates) and articles can you provide to us to show the proof of your claims?

    You see, unlike some, I try and get my news from many sources, unlike yourself who seems to follow only Fox news and the Bible. Also, I tend not to watch the news. I read it. Store the interesting bits so that if needed I can point to them and say ‘There, that’s where it was said’.

    So again, please cite your proof.

    It’s a tricky question, though. I’ll have to think about it.

  26. I think it’s wrong that you seem to be taking so much delight in the death of another human being. Yes, he’s accused of a kidnap and murder and extreme measures need to be taken in a time of war but there is no reason why you should take pleasure in the killing.

    I’ll say it again- one less bad guy who’ll be killing Americans later. Am I supposed to equate this cockroach with the three Americans he helped kidnap? His life’s not worth one American toenail. Nor one Iraqi civilian’s toenail, either, I might add.

    Hmm. 3 or 4 years ago you say? You mean right after or around the time that every single news agency (including Fox news) clearly reported that there were no WMDs or even the ability to create them?
    Or that there was no solid link between Osama bin Laden and Saddam?

    But you can’t backtrack to prove your statement.
    Would you like links from Fox on the articles that state the opposite of what you say? I mean, if that’s your only source then you should follow all of it, not just bits and pieces, right?

    Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. You of all people should know that, linkhound.

  31. Saddam was helping Mohammed Atta. They talked about it all the time after the attacks.

    They may have clamped down on it since then, but the media really doesn’t like the war in Iraq, so they wouldn’t want news getting out that tied it in to Al Qaeda.

    “They may have clamped down on it since then, but the media really doesn’t like the war in Iraq, so they wouldn’t want news getting out that tied it in to Al Qaeda.”

    But Sisyphus even advised us to watch (not read, watch) the news, specifically Fox News, to see the truth. See the statement above:

    “My proof is the news. Maybe you should try watching it sometime. I recommend Fox News, personally. They’re the only ones that cut through the moonbat media filter.”

  35. Oh, and one more small point was picking at me. In your original post you stated:
    “Good riddance. Unfortunately, there’s plenty more where that came from; the good news is that each guy we kill is one less guy we have to kill. … I think we need to take the bad guys out. If a few innocent bystanders get killed in the process, I’m very sorry, but that’s war.”

    “Thou shalt not kill.” – Exodus 20:13

    “Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment” – Matthew 5:21

    “Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.” – Mark 10:19, Luke 15:30

    “For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” – Romans 13:9

    “For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.” – James 2:11

    I’m just curious as to how you resolve these disparaging viewpoints to your own, especially in light of how you hold the Bible in such regard.

    Jesus said that He brought us the sword. Moreover, sometimes violence is necessary for the greater good, like a surgeon violently holding a man’s leg down to amputate it and help him out.

    To help the people of Iraq, we must amputate cancerous cells of terrorists. It is better that a part of your body should perish in the fire, than that your whole soul burn in Hell.

  38. But God specifically said not to Kill. I mean, it’s pretty cut-and-dried. No room for interperetation. “Thou Shall Not Kill” is not ambiguous in any way, is it?

  39. “But God specifically said not to Kill. I mean, it’s pretty cut-and-dried. No room for interperetation. “Thou Shall Not Kill” is not ambiguous in any way, is it?”

    God also instructed Saul to kill, and when he didn’t, punished him by raising up David. He also commanded Joshua to destroy the Canaanites utterly.

    Clearly, God wants us to kill terrorists. “Thou shalt not kill” only applies to the good people.

  41. “Oh, go French kiss Stalin you pansy.”

    Very mature. Did you develop your witty retorts at kindergarten or high school? I also refer you to Matthew 5:21-7:26.

    “I’ll say it again- one less bad guy who’ll be killing Americans later. Am I supposed to equate this cockroach with the three Americans he helped kidnap? His life’s not worth one American toenail. Nor one Iraqi civilian’s toenail, either, I might add.”

    Going back to my point. I think that taking pleasure in another person’s death is reprehensible. People die in war, some people are even executed as punishment for their crimes. These things should be viewed with a varying degree of acceptance but never pleasure. I understand that you feel satisfied that the killer of those soldiers can no longer harm anyone else but surely it is incongruous of you, as someone who claims to be a Christian, to enjoy the death of another. Surely this goes against the teachings of your holy book? Wouldn’t you agree? Whatever the value you place on a person’s life it is only the most hardened sociopath who is unable to empathise in some small way.

    Perhaps you view this man as something sub human? If so then this is a dangerous opinion to hold. After all it was one advocated by the nazis in Germany and Italy during the 30s and 40s and again in Bosnia by the proponents of “ethnic cleansing” in more recent years. Of course the Bible does not preach racial tolerance does it. Deuteronomy 23:3-8. Or religious tolerance: Deuteronomy 13:13-17.

    No one needs a permission slip to defend themselves. We’re at war with people who want to exterminate us. If you want to die, go find Bin Laden and have him cut your head off. Christianity is not a suicide pact, mister.

  44. “No one needs a permission slip to defend themselves.”

    Pre-emptive war on a country that did not attack you is not defence. It is agression. Iraq did not attack the US, therefore it was not defence.

    “We’re at war with people who want to exterminate us.”

    How many in the middle East have died by American hands now? And how many Americans? I think the staggering difference in numbers shows who is out to exterminate whom.

    “If you want to die, go find Bin Laden and have him cut your head off. Christianity is not a suicide pact, mister.”

    Never said it was, but didn’t Jesus say something about turning the other cheak? I don’t remember Him ever saying anything about punching the other guy first.

    [sarcasm] Oh, what a good Christian, you. [/sarcasm] You say you love Jesus so much but do you really think what you wrote is what Jesus would do? Was he not all, “Turn the other cheek”?

    It is hypocrisy such as this that makes religion a joke. Do your religion a favor and keep your mouth shut.

    That just means God is with us.

    I don’t remember anything about “cheaks” in the Bible. But I do remember Jesus saying something about how, “I don’t come to bring you peace, but to bring you the sword.”

    “This post drips with so much hate and blood-thirst that it is sickening.”

    Christianity is not a suicide pact, Beth. And if it weren’t for Christians like me, Northern Europeans would still be drinking the blood of virgins. Southern Europeans would be Muslims, and America would be in the hands of warlike tribes like the Iroquois Nation, the cliffhanging Apache, and the unspeakably duplicitous Pawnee.

  47. And Christianity is not warlike? You and your ilk are evidence against that theory. I googled “cliffhaning” and “Apache” and nothing came up, so what are you even talking about there? And if being duplicitous didn’t get people to convert, Christians in the past have certainly never been against murdering the heathens as a last resort. By your own definitions, if the Injuns were so horrible, the Christians were just as horrible.

    So you’re justifying the genocide of Native Americans? Jesus would be proud, I’m sure.

    If this is the case you should *love* Muhammad! Speading faith by the sword and all. Do you know how the shahada goes? If not, I can let you know so that you may join the truth faith of Islam as soon as possible.

    Apaches were mesa-dwellers. Pawnee sold their services to the highest bidder.

    You are tellingly silent on King Phillip’s War. Incidentally, per capita it was the war with the greatest death toll in American history. Your buddies, the Narragansett, did that one.

    “So you’re justifying the genocide of Native Americans? Jesus would be proud, I’m sure.”

    Christianity is not a suicide pact. I’m sure you’d rather the settlers had all died, but I, for one, am glad they didn’t.

    “If this is the case you should *love* Muhammad! Speading faith by the sword and all.”

    Islam is an heretical faith.

  49. “You are tellingly silent on King Phillip’s War. Incidentally, per capita it was the war with the greatest death toll in American history. Your buddies, the Narragansett, did that one.”

    No, I’m not. Check the heliocentrism post. The settlers were killing Narragansetts too, not just the other way around. It takes two to wage war. And like I said at the heliocentrism post, one battle between two smallish groups of people over goods does not justify the genocide of an entire race. Try again.

    “Christianity is not a suicide pact.”

    You keep saying that time and time again to various people who are not saying anything at all about suicide pacts. What are you talking about?

    “I’m sure you’d rather the settlers had all died, but I, for one, am glad they didn’t.”

    Of course I *don’t* rather that the settlers died. I don’t hope people die, unlike you, apparently. I would, however, rather they not have stolen my people’s land under the false premise of religion, when it was really all about greed.

    “Islam is an heretical faith.”

    Whether or not you think Islam is heretical, some of the values you proudly display here mirror some of those of the more violent Muslims. I’m just saying you have something in common.
