Anbar Tribes Vow To Fight Al Qaeda "To The Last Child"

The Sunnis' children, they mean, not the pathetic gay-panic young men who sublimate their twisted sexual pathologies into mass-murder and rape.

Correction: On FoxNews I just heard it wasn't until their own last child. They said they'd kill anyone they heard was Al Qaeda, even if it was a child still in his mother's womb.

Strong, tough, indeed.

unni Arab Iraqis and U.S. forces in Anbar province vowed on Friday to keep fighting al Qaeda after the assassination of a tribal leader who worked with Americans to create one of Iraq's few security success stories.

Abdul Sattar Abu Risha was killed in a bomb attack on Thursday near his home in Ramadi, provincial capital of what was once one of Iraq's most dangerous areas.

"All the tribes agreed to fight al Qaeda until the last child in Anbar," his brother, Ahmed Abu Risha, told Reuters.

An al Qaeda-led group said on Friday it was responsible for the killing of Abu Risha, according to an Internet posting. The self-styled Islamic State in Iraq called the killing of Abu Risha a "heroic operation" and vowed to assassinate more tribal leaders who cooperate with U.S. and government forces.

Its statement could not be authenticated, but it was posted on a main Islamist Web site.

"This ... is a new setback for the crusaders' plans and Bush's new strategy," the Islamic State in Iraq said, adding the operation took more than a month to prepare.
