US Airstrike Destroys Another "Wedding Party," This One in Fallujah

They report the strike on the Al Qaeda safe-house/wedding hall killed 20 foreign fighters/dancing celebrants.

Famed Baghdad wedding singer, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, was scheduled to sing Hava Negaleh at the festivities, but intelligence sources say that he was forced to cancel at the last moment in order to perform a magic show at a Sadr City Chucky Cheese.

Reports say the airstrike resulted in multiple large secondary explosions, which usually indicates the presence of on-site explosives and/or wedding cakes.

Al Jazeera reports that all 20 of the casualties were women and children, who were, per Iraqi wedding customs, all wearing the traditional wedding-party handlebar moustaches and carrying "Festival Tubes," also known as Soviet RPG-7 grenade launchers.
