Insurgents scorn Bush claim

WASHINGTON, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Insurgent and terror groups in Iraq have poured scorn on President Bush's statement that the United States is winning the war there.

A statement signed by the Information Ministry of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq called Bush "the dog of the Romans" and pledged to "butcher those Jews, Christians, their collaborators and dogs."

"Our swords will drip with their blood," the statement said, according to a translation provided by the SITE Institute. "We have broken the sheaths, so our swords can always be drawn on the infidels. Our swords will only dull against their chests and necks."

...

It portrayed Bush's remarks last Wednesday as a desperate appeal for assistance. "Here is America, appealing to other countries for assistance in fighting Muslims and Islam."
