More Red On Red... Kick Ass
Via Blackfive and The Fourth Rail, I love this sort of news.
"We have had enough of his nonsense," said Sheik Ahmad Khanjar, leader of the Albu Ali clan, referring to Zarqawi. "We don't accept that a non-Iraqi should try to enforce his control over Iraqis, regardless of their sect -- whether Sunnis, Shiites, Arabs or Kurds.''
Iraqi Sunnis Battle To Defend Shiites
BAGHDAD, Aug. 14 -- Rising up against insurgent leader Abu Musab Zarqawi, Iraqi Sunni Muslims in Ramadi fought with grenade launchers and automatic weapons Saturday to defend their Shiite neighbors against a bid to drive them from the western city, Sunni leaders and Shiite residents said. Dozens of Sunni members of the Dulaimi tribe established cordons around Shiite homes, and Sunni men battled followers of Zarqawi, a Jordanian, for an hour Saturday morning. The clashes killed five of Zarqawi's guerrillas and two tribal fighters, residents and hospital workers said. Zarqawi loyalists pulled out of two contested neighborhoods in pickup trucks stripped of license plates, witnesses said.
Time for my two cents. Kick Ass! The more Red on Red, the less power Zarqawi has in Iraq. Less power equals less support. Less support equals less action against innocent civilians and U.S. and Iraqi troops. Less action equals less foreign troops required to stabilize Iraq. You get the point... we need to keep this stuff going.
I can't think of a better situation then U.S. troops finding Zarqawi tied to the hood of a taxi cab sitting outside of a base.
