Team Infidel Shoots... And Scores!

al Qaeda #3 (behind al Zawahiri and bin Laden) Hamza Rabia has just experienced Hellfire.


The operational commander of al-Qaida and possibly the No. 3 official in the terrorist organization, Hamza Rabia, was killed early Thursday morning by a CIA missile attack on a safehouse in Pakistan, officials told NBC News.

Pakistan's president later confirmed the militant leader's death.

Chalk up another one up for the Predator/Hellfire UAV/missile combination.

If Osama bin Laden is possibly dead as a certain senator opined, then Ayman al Zawahiri is the last man standing in senior al Qaeda leadership from the 9/11 era.

Those HELLFIRE missiles can certainly ruin a person's day, alright. That one was worth every penny of my tax dollars!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the major news media started reporting how many of the terrorists we've eliminated?

I read that there were a series of secondary explosions after the missle hit, indicating that the terrorist's ordnance, intended to kill our guys, blew up with them! Way to go!

Here is how impressed Isreal is with our Iraq mission:

"Israel told the United States it fears the outcome of regime change in Syria.

At a strategic-dialogue meeting this week among senior officials, Israel laid out for the United States three scenarios if Bashar Assad is toppled: chaos, an Islamist regime or another strongman from Assad’s minority Alawite sect. Israel fears all those options, saying Assad provides a measure of stability.

U.S. officials told their Israeli counterparts that toppling Assad could be “transformative” and dismissed concerns about an Islamist regime taking his place. Israel and the United States favor pressure on Syria to force it to stop hosting Palestinian terrorist groups and supporting Hezbollah, a Lebanese terrorist organization."

We need more postings of the positive things that have happened in this War on Terrorism. The liberals would have you believe that our outstanding military is losing in Afghanistan, and Iraq. We need to promote the positives!

Way to go Army - Kick their ass!

Isn't Mullah Omar still alive and kicking somewhere in the same area?
I'm pretty sure OBL is the jelly in a rock sandwich somewhere in the Tora Boras, and that his last video was pieced together from older works.

Nate has just been banned. I got tired of his cut-and-paste comments that were irrelevant to the actual subject of the post.
