Iraq captures al-Qaeda deputy

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by GuyT, Sep 3, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The Iraqi authorities say they have arrested the second-in-command of al-Qaeda in Iraq.

    The interior ministry said the man, Hamad Jama al-Faidi, was detained a few days ago.

    Iraq's national security adviser told a news conference the man was the deputy to Abu Ayyub al-Masri, the current head of the insurgent group.

    The group's key leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed by American troops in June.

  2. Oh dear its electric drill time......
  3. And plyers..........oh they've got to use the plyers, it's no fun without plyers.

  4. I rather think you mean "pliers" old bean
  5. Don't leave out Chaka Demus.
  6. No I didn't, I meant Plyers....I forgot about Chaka Demus.
  7. "Al-Qaida in Iraq" only play a bit-part role in the insurgency.
  8. This has got to be at least the 40th No. 2 to be captured in the last year or so.I suppose we are about to turn the corner again in our fight against this people.

    BTW when have you turned the corner when you are going around in circles?
  9. Not only have we "turned the corner" but we've "broken the back of the insurgency". Again.

    As long as we "stay the course" it'll be "mission accomplished". Again.

    And don't forget, it's ill-informed media comment and "liberal moonbats" that lose wars for America, the size, scale and abilities of the opposition have nothing to do with it.
  10. You never heard of promotion boards?
