Don't RIP, Abu Ayyub al-Masri

    Al-Zarqawi's replacement in Iraq said to be dead.
    Who gets the call-up from AAA to get in line to die next?

  2. Well, I certainly believe anything that tribesmen tell the Iraqi government which then feeds the stuff to CNN.

    Gee, like we couldn't see that coming.

    I've figured out long since we killed or captured the 26th "Al Qaeda Number Three" that Al Qaeda has more than a AAA. They're deep at AA, all levels of Single-A and go all the way down to Class D like the minors of the 1940s.

    Masri's death (if true) won't change much of anything. Zarqawi's been dead for about a year and has anything much changed?

    Not really, but it's good to see these scumbags don't go unpunished and that the US and Iraqis are still working to get them.

    Also, NBC is saying this is all being confirmed by the Iraqi Interior Ministry.
    Hopefully, it's true.

    If we would do it well, it would. One of my favorite historical moments is when after the Israelis killed the head of hamas a few times ina row, they announced that the new chief would remain anonymous.

    Is this thread title an anti-shoutout?
  9. I would point out that, if that report is true, then al-Masri died in combat between two insurgent groups, neither of whom like us very much.

    Is this not great news?
  11. It's un-bad news, of a kind we've seen before. The fact that one group of people that hates us may have killed a guy who hated us doesn't make me crack open the Dom, sorry.
    It changes the situation on the ground not a bit, any more than our triumph over Zarqawi did.

    And who knows what ABC has.

    It also doesn't solve global warming, I am capable of celebtrating good, sorry, un-bad news as you call it even if it doesn't singlehandedly yield blissful utopia.

    Can we decide whether this is no big deal, or a big enough deal to be worth faking? Can we go on record before we know what ABC has?
