Resistance tells Iraqi PM "Don't go planning for Crimbo


By Alistair Lyon
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Islamist militants vowed Wednesday to assassinate Iraq's interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi, threatening to step up a bloody campaign of beheadings and other killings a week before a U.S. handover to Iraqi rule.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian accused by U.S. officials of having links to al Qaeda and who claimed responsibility for the beheading of a South Korean hostage this week, made the threat on an Islamist Web site.

"As for you, Allawi -- sorry, the democratically elected prime minister -- we have found for you a useful poison and a sure sword," said a taped voice, purported to be Zarqawi's own.

Now if I was the latest pupp ....errrr rightfully elected and represented Boss of Iraq, I'd be digging a nice big secure hole, and teleconferencing everything.
