"We are not fighting for Saddam," said Ahmed Jassim, a religious student in the flash-point city of Fallujah, as he cheered an attack on a U.S. convoy recently. "We are fighting for our country, for our honor, for Islam. We are not doing this for Saddam." khalifa.com (http://www.khilafah.com/home/category.php?DocumentID=8886&TagID=2)

And Bush says this isn't another "Vietnam"?

:rotfl That is so ridiculious:



American Marines called in two airstrikes on the pair of dingy three-story buildings squatting along Highway 10 on Wednesday, dropping 500- pound bombs each time.

They fired 35 or so 155 millimeter artillery shells, 10 shots from the muzzles of Abrams tanks and perhaps 30,000 rounds from their automatic rifles. The building was a smoking ruin.


All that just to take out ONE sniper and he still gets away. And they say the Marines are the best of the best of the best in the world. Like hell they are! :eyes
