  • Iraq Cleric Vows Fight to Death Vs. U.S.

    By ABDUL HUSSEIN AL-OBEIDI

    NAJAF, Iraq (AP) -- A radical Shiite cleric vowed to fight to the death as his loyalists battled U.S. troops for a fifth straight day Monday, and bombings in Sunni regions outside Baghdad - including a failed attempt to assassinate a deputy governor - killed at least 10 Iraqis.

    I say we give him his wish !! Who knows once he gets over that pesky "without breath" thing he may enjoy death - rivers of wine, young virgins etc...

      Wise thing would be to advance the strategy that would eliminate any possibility of future uprisings, while annihilating the existing one.

      12 years ago I have read about the Military Campaigns of Napoleon.
      I still recall those.
      Among many others I remember his recollection of 'Egyptian Campaign', where he pronouced his famous 'Soldiers! Forty centuries are looking upon us!' referring to Pyramids.

      No need to say that his campaigh was brilliant and resulted in very quick and total mastery over Egypt in a matter of months(there were some setbacks, of course, but you have to jusge things in totality of circumstances).

      Later he was forced to leave Egypt for France,General Kleber was put in charge of Army and destroyed all the gains that were made under Napoleon's command.

      I am not suggesting that tactics of Napoleon should be imitated, but I beleive there is a lot to be learned from his enterprise, specifically when it comes to dealing with Arabs.
