  Zarqawi: The Lighter Side

Hilarious! The US Military has released a rollicking new video showing Al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi demonstrating his comedy skills. In one frame, he can't figure out how to fire a machine gun. In another, he trots around in jaunty tennis shoes.

The War on Terror has entered a new and exciting phase: Mutual Assured Mocking (MAM). How will Zarqawi respond? Some 'yo mama' jokes about Barbara? Maybe some hidden camera footage of Bush II reading the bible...upside down!? The possibilities are endless.

I can't help but wonder, though...the United States has spent a lot of time and money terrifying its own population about the threat of terrorists like Zarqawi. And now, they want everyone to think he's the fundamentalist equivalent of the Keystone Cops. I mean, not that I'm surprised to see the Bush Administration employ contradictory strategies. But still, it makes you wonder if they have any idea about anything at all...
The sad part of the new video is that the more the Americans make Zarqawi look "bush league", the more striking their inability to stop him. Look at this incompetent fool that we can't capture.
Maybe they're trying to downplay the terror and havoc he seems to be reaping on Iraq. Give the Americans confidence. 'Oh, there won't be a civil war... that leaders Zarqawi's just an idiot!'

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
