Iraqi PM says some 400 militants killed in crackdown
2 hours, 16 minutes ago
U.S. and Iraqi security forces have killed around 400 suspected militants since the start of a major crackdown to stem violence in Baghdad, Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said on Saturday.

Maliki visited the command center for the operation which was launched 10 days ago and urged security forces taking part in it not to be influenced by sectarian loyalties.

He told reporters 426 suspected militants had been detained in the crackdown "and around that number have been killed."

Maliki, a Shi'ite Islamist criticized for not doing enough to combat Shi'ite militias, has vowed to deal even-handedly with both Shi'ite and Sunni Muslims responsible for violence that had been killing hundreds every week.

A statement from his office said the prime minister reminded security forces to "respect the citizen" during searches.

"We will punish all those who ease up on searches involving people from their sect or ethnicity," the statement said.

Washington has identified the Mehdi Army, a militia loyal to radical Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, as the greatest threat to security in Iraq. Sunni Arabs blame it for running death squads, a charge Sadr denies.

"The prime minister pointed out the positive results that were produced in the last few days after a number of terrorist cells were broken up and many of their operations failed, as well as the return of hundreds of displaced families to their areas," the statement said.

here is the problem.

Terrorists were not born as a terriorist. Usually they hold some hatred against something and use violence/threat to achieve their political goals.

you kill one and get another two born.

if you think you can wipe them off by killing more of them, you are really stupid.

We didn't kill the family members of al qaeda prior to 9/11. So, although they technically weren't born terrorists, they became terrorists while we did nothing.

That is only true up to a point, eventually you hit "peak terrorist" and you kill more than can be born (this is the way wars were fought for tens of thousands of years).



if you think you can wipe them off by killing more of them, you are really stupid.

OMG! you're like so right! what was I thinking. let's buy them girl scout cookies!

So which is it?

You just said they're not "born" terrorists, and then you say...


you kill one and get another two born.


I don't think you're in a position to be calling anybody stupid here.

You know what's funny? I haven't heard of any terrorists groups calling for a surge of "holey warriors" to surge into Iraq to fight the USA. Add to the news that mookie-al-SAD-r seems to have fled the country. I guess muslim terrorists are only brave when a camera is shooting them and flee in the face of American troops.
