Yemen: Al Qaeda Offers Bounty For U.S. Ambassador, Soldiers
Source: Associated Press
SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen has offered to pay tens of thousands of dollars to anyone who kills the U.S. ambassador in Sanaa or an American soldier in the country.
An audio produced by the group’s media arm, the al-Malahem Foundation, and posted on militant websites Saturday said it was offering 3 kilograms (6.6 pounds) of gold, worth $160,000, for killing the ambassador.
The group said it will pay 5 million Yemeni riyals ($23,000) to anyone who kills an American soldier inside Yemen.
It said the offer is valid for six months. The bounties were set to “inspire and encourage our Muslim nation for jihad,” the statement said.

3. Is this surprising?
It is war, after all. What were we expecting? A ticker-tape parade?

5. They may be assholes, but they have their reasons to be irritated with us.
If they're assholes, what do you call the guys who order drone strikes on motorcycles from the other side of the planet? I'd go with chickenshits.

6. Somebody got up on the wrong side of the futon today!
Why don't drones have machine guns so they don't have to waste a bomb on a motorcycle?
I know! Let's stand in two rows and fire muskets at the the other guys...
Just to be fair...
Conservatives find solice in rules, knowing others think as they do. A liberal doesn't think within a structured box but has the vision to think of many wonderful variations. For someone to think a "liberal" must think "liberal ideas" is to show a lack of understanding for liberal thought!
