Ratteling 100 sabres

The death of bin-Laden is always good for stirring up the locals and getting them in the mood to kill.  The promise of 100 attacks to avenge bin-Ladens death makes for good headlines, and if they succeed in 10% of their attacks there will still be innocents murdered and many wounded.

Al-Qaida in Iraq: 100 attacks to avenge bin Laden

BAGHDAD (AP) — Al-Qaida in Iraq has vowed to carry out "100 attacks" across the country, starting in the middle of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, to exact revenge for the death of Osama bin Laden.
The terror group's statement was released on militant websites late Friday. It said the attacks will avenge bin Laden, who was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan in May, and other slain senior al-Qaida leaders.
"By God's will, the campaign starts in the middle of the fasting month (of Ramadan) and ends by God's will after 100 attacks exactly," it said.
The statement said the campaign would include "varied attacks, including raids, martyrdom operations (suicide attacks), roadside bombs, silenced guns and snipers, in all cities, rural areas and provinces" across Iraq.
Monday marked the middle of Ramadan.

Unfortunately the "holy" month of Ramadan while disallowing any food or drink during daylight hours, does not forbid the mass murder of innocents.
Something seems amiss...
