19. The conventional weapon of Jihad, a sacrament of Islam.
Edited on Tue Nov-15-05 04:23 PM by EVDebs
The Blackwater guys pictures vs. the reporters pictures. Ask yourself why MSM isn't covering the reporter's photos when Al Jezeera and the world posted the Blackwater contractor's. Hmmm ? They're playing by 'Hama Rules' which the Arab world seems to respect.

Also, I've heard that back then at the time of Fallujah, Syrian mercenaries were fighting along with the insurgents. This is timely as now I'm hearing rumblings from Washington DC to do an aerial strike on Syria itself in the border areas...
