"The Islamic Army in Iraq, which has previously claimed responsibility for kidnappings and killings of foreigners, made a bounty offer for the assassination of key Iraqi officials.
"The militant group called in a Web posting for its "holy fighters to strike the infidels with an iron fist." It offered $100,000 to the killer of al-Jaafari, $50,000 for the interior minister and $30,000 for the defense minister."

That sounds like a cheaper way to win the war than the way we're doing it... but I guess our effort has something to do with democracy, freedom, and winning the minds and hearts of the people. The Islamic terrorists don't like the way democracy works... the world would be a much better place if only THEY were in complete and total control, don't you know. If my history serves me correctly, the Crusades had something to do with stopping the total conquest of the world by Islam. It was more than just a Catholic thing. You're old enough to have gone to school when they still taught a little bit of history... hope you weren't sleeping in class.
