Nail the bastards (NICK PARKER and GARY O'SHEA, 10/09/04, The Sun)

AN SAS hit team was last night hunting down the barbaric killers of Ken Bigley.

The troops and America’s crack Delta Force were ordered: “Nail the bastards” after Ken, 62, was beheaded in Iraq.

They were closing in on the town of Latifiya, 22 miles south west of Baghdad, where Liverpool engineer Ken is thought to have been killed.

Intelligence officers at Britain’s GCHQ believe they have identified the area where butcher Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is holed up.

Surprised? Only (yet again) at how we advertise evey secret thing we do before it is accomplished.

Wouldn't this have been better done before Bigley was killed ?

That was going to be my question, Michael.

Another example, I guess, of the market not delivering the desired goods

If we didn't advertise, then all we'd be hearing is the whining about how we aren't doing anything. What we need to remember is that no matter what we do, there's a certain element that is going to whine no matter what, and their whines will be amplified and exploited to serve the anti-war agenda.

The US will not do what needs to be done in Iraq because the Bush family remains bought and paid for by the Saudi thugocracy. The current President, unlike his despicable traitorous father, grandfather and great-grandfather, at least seems to want to do the right thing, but he is hamstrung in his efforts by his family's dependence on the Saudi teat. Even his brother Fredo, excuse me Neil, receives millions from the Saudis.

Yes, but the Jewish neocon cabal owns him now, so he'll do whatever the Elders of Zion demand.

Not according to what I get on my decoder ring.
