Desperate Desperados

So let me get this straight, the Iraqi elections go off smoothly and those seeking to avenge those who voted are struck down by the good Lord - with a little help from His/Her friends:
Citizens of Al Mudhiryiah (a small town in the "death triangle") were subjected to an attack by several militants today who were trying to punish the residents of this small town for voting in the election last Sunday.

The citizens responded and managed to stop the attack, kill 5 of the attackers, wounded 8 and burned their cars.

3 citizens were injured during the fire exchange. The Shiekh of the tribe to whom the 3 wounded citizens belong demanded more efforts from the government to stop who he described as "Salafis".

Hat Tip: Free Iraqi

The insurgents resort to the lowest of the low - kidnapping handicapped children and using them as walking explosives (conjures up images of Hamas' use of Children and the mentally challenged in Israel):
The suicide attack that was performed on an election center in one of Baghdad's districts (Baghdad Al-Jadeedah) last Sunday was performed using a kidnapped "Down Syndrome" patient.

Eye witnesses said "the poor victim was so scared when ordered to walk to the searching point and began to walk back to the terrorists. In response the criminals pressed the button and blew up the poor victim almost half way between their position and the voting center's entrance".

Hat Tip: IraqTheModel

And to top it all up they kidnap "John Adams" or should I say "Cody" the toy soldier and threaten to decapitate him (Now, there is a beheading I wouldn't mind seeing). See Toy Story (and if you are in a good mood - Toy Story 2).

One party is definitely losing this war, and unlike what CNN, BBC, et al. will have you believing - it is not the Iraqis or their allied partners.

This can't work in reality, that is exactly what I suppose.
