4000 Jihadis Killed In Iraq and the New York Times yawns

Thursday, September 28, 2006
A new tape from the current al Qaeda leader in Iraq, and among the scary things like requesting explosives and nuclear experts to come join him he drops this little bit:

"The blood has been spilled in Iraq of more than 4,000 foreigners who came to fight," said al-Muhajir.

Foxnews reported the above.

And along with al-Muhajir's call for kidnappings, the BBC also reported what he said about the number of foreign fighters killed in Iraq.

But the NY Times? Prints the scary stuff only. Not one word about 4000 al Qaeda we've killed in Iraq.

Perhaps the New York Times is trying to scare us into thinking the situation is totally hopeless. All those terrorists created by the Iraq war are COMING TO GET US! HIDE! Well, 4000 of 'em are dead, Jim.

Just a minor detail so not fit to print.

Seems to me the Democrats are trying to scare us into leaving Iraq...with the help of the New York Times.

They sure weren't yawmning when it came to the Detainee bill. That had them upset. The idea that these poor baby tewwowists will not get all the rights they should get and would get if the NYT had anything to say about it is sending them into a frenzy.


My Dad was in WW2 and I think that most of us who had Dads in WW2 know that back in the good old days before Bush detstroyed the Constitution, the enemy was not handled with tenderness. More often than not he would end up dead, killed.... he was fortunate if he got a trial and if he did chances were he would be hanged.

Yesterday a friend (a BDS sufferer) mentioned that he'd been chatting with his nephew (who he said was in the "special forces", no way to know, no reason to doubt, didn't pursue details). The nephew was home but soon headed for Iraq again. He said his nephew told him, "We're running out of bad guys to shoot over there."

I'm guessing that virtually none of the people who write these articles have family in the military, and virtually no friends in the military. If their son or daughter expressed a desire to apply to West Point, they would seek out the services of a good Manhattan psychotherapist. Likewise, there are few who know any contractors in Iraq, what they do, and the dangers they face. There is much about these Americans that remains unknown to the NYT. It is a world and an ethos as alien to them as the far side of the Moon.

Hey, at least they aren't arguing our response is disproportionate. I mean 3,000 were murdered on 9/11 and 4,000 AQ killed in Iraq alone. Whoa!
