Now these noble religious men ordained as freedom fighters by the porcine propagandist Michael Moore are using kids as young as 15 to carry out their murderous ways.
At this rate, even the leftwingers who sympathize with these scumbags might have to give second thought to why we're actually fighting the monsters.
BAGHDAD: Al-Qa'ida is using teenagers as suicide bombers in Iraq, a US military spokesman said yesterday, as an influential Sunni cleric urged the jihadists to stop "strapping bombs to children".Yeah, but are they using sleep deprivation techniques or, God forbid, putting panties on the heads of prisoners?
The comments came as Iraqi troops and tanks rolled into Mosul to boost forces for a huge offensive against al-Qa'ida after deadly bombings in the restive northern city in the past week killed dozens, among them a police chief.
Rear Admiral Gregory Smith said two suicide attacks in Iraq in the past week had been carried out by 15-year-olds.
"We are not sure whether one of these children even knew he was being used to deliver a bomb," the US military spokesman said.
One attack was carried out at a funeral ceremony near Tikrit, executed dictator Saddam Hussein's home town north of Baghdad, and the other was at a school in Mosul, Admiral Smith said.
He gave no details of the two bombings. Iraqi police said 17 people died in a January 21 suicide blast at the funeral near Tikrit for a relative of an Iraqi police colonel.
"Al-Qa'ida in Iraq is trying to brainwash children with hate and death ... they seek to create a culture of violence, hate and despair," Admiral Smith said.
Of course not. They chop people's heads off instead.
"(They) are sending 15-year-old boys on suicide missions to spread death and helplessness."Editors from The Lancet and The New York Times were unavailable for comment.
Ninety per cent of "suicide murders inflicted on Iraqi people are committed by foreign fighters brought in by al-Qa'ida in Iraq to spread destruction," Admiral Smith said.
His comments came as moderate but influential Sunni leader Ahmed Abdul Ghafour al-Samarraie accused the al-Qa'ida-linked Islamic State of Iraq of committing the "worst crimes against our people".
"They have killed thousands of thinkers, dozens of scholars, tens of thousands of innocent people in horrifying ways," Sheik Samarraie said in a statement. The jihadists were "strapping bombs to children and sending them into gatherings and mourning ceremonies".
"They feel happy with these killings. They deceived young people to attach bombs to their bodies to explode themselves to go allegedly to paradise," he said, appealing to Islamic scholars around the world to declare such attacks as contrary to Sharia law.
