Death and Destruction

Seems like some Iraqi leaders are starting to get the picture of U.S. military strategy in Iraq - it's the same strategy we used in the first major war we lost - Vietnam:

Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, the most revered Shiite cleric in Iraq, asked the government 'to defend this country against the mass annihilation,' according to Vice President Adel Abdul Mahdi, who led a delegation that visited the ayatollah on Sunday.

That's right Mr. al-Sistani - we are there to annihilate your people - make no mistake about it. But don't take my word for it - take it from our troops:

"If somebody shoots at you, you waste him," said Estrada, 32, of Kearny, N.J. "When you go back to Camp Lejeune, these will be the good old days, when you brought . . . death and destruction to -- what . . . is this place called?"

A Marine answered in the darkness: "Haqlaniyah."

Democracy, 'death and destruction' - same thing...
