Iraqis capture Tucker’s and Menchaca’s kidnapper

posted at 1:21 pm on December 28, 2006 by Allahpundit

Not the guy who killed them; they took care of him earlier this year. Today they got the mastermind:

Special Iraqi Army Forces, with coalition advisors, captured an Al Qaeda in Iraqi terror cell leader during operations Dec. 26 in Al Yousifiyah, south of Baghdad…

Recently, the terrorist was commenting on the kidnapping during the showing of a video CD at a Yousifiyah mosque. The CD reportedly showed the kidnapping of the US Soldiers. The terrorist is also suspected of perpetrating numerous kidnappings, murders and other violent crimes within the Yousifiyah area.

Yet another flaw in the theory that the kidnapping was revenge by the locals for the rape and murder of Abeer Hamza by U.S. troops.

Being as this is a “slow” news day…

“Another one Bites the Dust”, One…More….TIME.

Now if only the rest of America had the fortitude to continue until we sing “We are the Champions”.

This is wonderful news.

He didn’t do too well with that Saddam guy’s case….

Quagmire! Run away!

Hmmmm….any chance of a double-hanging?

Get sadr and make it a swinging crowd.

We’re going too easy on these sub-simian sacks of amphibian shit. We need to get out the pliers and a blow-torch and get medieval on their asses.

We better get serious about these sacks of human waste… if they go to the gutter we need to go to the sewer.

Hehehe, killing them makes my heart happy.

Does that make me evil? Probably.

Does that make me more effective than a protesting hippy? Definately.

The worst torture we could give to these Death Cult Deadenders is to let the live and die of old age, robbing them of the marytrdom they so desparately want. They will slowly go mad, just like the ones at Gitmo. That is what Hell is for jihadists. No loud boom, no paradise, no virgins, just day after day after day of the old same sh!t until they die.

Why aren’t there breaking news stories on CNN and the NYT on this? Why isn’t this being hailed as a victory? Oh, yeah, that’s right, CNN and NYT want the US to lose…nevermind, move along, nothing to see here…

Oh, I don’t know… Seems to me like executing them is much simpler and cheaper, and if we ever had the testicular fortitude to do it, we could dress them in pigskin or grease them up with lard or something when they are executed. The PC crowd and multi-cultis would flip out but it’d make for a major deterrence factor.

Woo! Hooo! Can I get an “Allahu Akbar”?

I’ll second that suggestion. There is sooooooooooo much to be said for positive deterrence.

Besides – roughly a dollar for sending them to Allah disgraced versus over several thousand dollars in our touchy-feely criminal justice system.

I’d have to say that the dollar option makes more “sense”.

Use automatics and the dollar amount per terrorist goes way down.

Food for thought. Besides – sick of the PC.

My idea of the worst torture might go something like this: Tie ‘em up and force feed ‘em BLT sandwiches, dump ‘em into a vat of pig’s blood, then waste their sorry a**es right then and there. “Oooh, sorry – no ‘ticket to Paradise’ for you – you’re impure! That’d do it.

SpartRan on December 28, 2006 at 10:34 PM

Hell with it. Just show ‘em their pork-chop lined coffins before you put the bag over their heads…
